Betsy Torres, an extraordinary woman who lived her life in full color, passed away on July 8, 2023, at the age of 57. Born on January 19, 1966, in Jersey City, her journey ended in Long Branch, New Jersey, after a brave battle with cancer. Yet, the story of her life will continue to inspire and motivate all those who were privileged to know her.
Betsy was a woman of strength, resilience, and boundless love. She was pre-deceased by her father, Gilberto Torres, and is survived by her devoted parents, Estrella and Santos Lopez of Keansburg. Betsy shared a beautiful 35-year journey with her loving companion, Alex, who stood by her side through every high and low. She was a proud mother to her son, Alexander Torres of Keansburg. Betsy was a cherished sister to her four brothers and sisters-in-law, Eddy and Judith Torres of Union Beach, David Torres of Garfield, Santos and Nida Lopez of Bergenfield, and Edwin Lopez of Keansburg; and her sister and brother-in-law, Carmen and Frankie Morales of Hoboken. Betsy was a beloved aunt and cousin, leaving behind a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family members. Her family circle was wide and filled with love.
Betsy was a Sales Associate at Marshalls in Holmdel. Her zest for life was evident in her interests. She loved cooking, fashion, and dancing. Her kitchen was a place of creation, where she poured her love into every dish she prepared. Her sense of style was unique and inspiring, a reflection of her vibrant personality. And when Betsy danced, she was the epitome of joy and freedom, captivating everyone around her.
Betsy will be remembered not just for what she did, but for who she was. She was a sweet person, a beacon of positivity, and love. Betsy had a way of making everyone around her feel seen, heard, and valued. She had a heart big enough to encompass all those she loved, and her caring ways touched countless lives.
In the face of adversity, Betsy taught us the power of courage, the beauty of resilience, and the importance of love. Her life was a testament to her strength and her unwavering spirit. Even in her final moments, she was a source of inspiration, a beacon of hope, and a testament to the power of the human spirit.
Family and friends are invited to pay their respects on Friday from 6-8 pm at the Jacqueline M. Ryan Home for Funerals. A religious service will be offered at 7:30 pm. Cremation will be private.
