Ubitalina Salcedo Duran Obituary

Ms. Ubitalina Salcedo Duran, 85, entered the arms of the Lord on Wednesday, November 22, 2023, surrounded by the love of her family.

We respectfully request that no one arrive at the funeral home prior to the posted visitation times, so as not to intrude on the family’s private time. 

Family and friends are invited to the memorial visitation in the Kowalski Funeral Home, 515 Roselle Street, Linden on Thursday, November 30, 2023, from 2:00-5:00PM.  During the visitation at 4:00PM, there will be a prayer service and a sharing of memories.  The cremation in Rosehill Crematory, Linden was private.

Ubitalina, the daughter of the late Odulia Duran and the late Miguel Salcedo was born in Cali, Colombia.  She came to the United States in 1998, living in Elizabeth, New Jersey for a few years before settling in Linden, New Jersey eighteen years ago.

Ubitalina was a born seamstress.  She began sewing in her early years and as time went by, her talent developed and Ubitalina came to a point where she could sew any item or article of clothing.  She truly was a master of her craft!  Ubitalina also enjoyed feeding those who graced her home.  She was known for cooking many of her delicious recipes from her Colombian culture and anyone sitting at her table was in for a treat.  Ubitalina was an avid reader, constantly expanding her worldly knowledge or perhaps just reading for fun, but she was never without a book, newspaper, or magazine.  Along the creative lines, Ubitalina was very much a lover of music – she used it to relax and simply enjoyed the melody, words, beats, and instruments playing from every genre.

Ubitalina is survived by her three children, Luz Lilia Salcedo and her husband, Alfredo Loiza, Luis Javier Salcedo and his wife, Jenny and Linda Ramos and her husband, Jose; her three brothers, Hugo Salcedo, Carlos Salcedo and Miguel Salcedo; her eight grandchildren; her four great grandchildren and her many neighbors and friends.

Ubitalina was a woman of many talents but her love for her family superseded all else in her life; her love and devotion were boundless.  She was like a brightly shining star that is now beyond our reach and she left a powerful legacy of what “family” truly means.  As our hearts are breaking and the tears fill our eyes, we know that Ubitalina will always remain with us in spirit.
