Obituary for Gloria Rafiq

Our beloved Gloria Rafiq has gone to be with her Lord on Friday, November 10th, 2017 at 2:41pm, at Eastern Regional Medical Center (Cancer Treatment Center of America), in Philadelphia, PA.

Friends and relatives are invited to attend the viewing and funeral service, which will be held at O’Boyle Funeral Home, 309 Broad Street in Bloomfield, NJ 07003. The viewing will be on Tuesday, November 14th and Wednesday, November 15th from 4:00 – 8:00pm and Burial will be on Thursday November 16th at 11:00am at Glendale Cemetery in Bloomfield, NJ.

Gloria is the loving daughter of Esther Rafiq and the late Rafiq Barkat Masih. She is survived by three siblings, Edna, Barbara and Gordon Rafiq. She was the loving aunt of Charlton and Jeremiah -her two nephews, a sister-in-law to Thomas William and an aunt-in-law to Carmen Fontanez and her children.

Gloria worked as a Registered Nurse in the Operating Room at St Joseph’s Hospital in Paterson, New Jersey. Her prior work endeavors were at East Pasco Medical Center in Zephyrhills, Florida and ACRMD in Jamaica, Queens, New York. Also worked as an outreach nurse in Karachi, Pakistan –setting up mobile clinics in remote villages. She is remembered as a very outgoing person who was non-judgmental and very social with a silly playfulness personality. She enjoyed watching movies, cooking, hosting social gatherings and eating. Gloria loved being with her friends and also making new ones.

She had a big charitable heart. Her words of wisdom and comfort were always beautiful and were always followed by stories, spoken kindly with a smile on her face –even when she was not feeling well. Unfortunately, her earthly journey came to an abrupt end with her pain and suffering being subsided, she put up a good fight and will be sorely missed.

If anyone wants to send flowers or donations in memory of Gloria please send them to O’Boyle Funeral Home.
