Ana R. Talavera

April 2, 1965 ~ March 26, 2022 (age 56)


Ana Talavera, age 56, loving mother of 1, a sister to 1 brother and 4 sisters, and a aunt to many nieces and nephews, passed away in the early hours of the 26th of March after a courageous battle of Alzheimer’s and other illnesses.  Ana was born in 1965 in Puerto Rico and grew up surrounded by her large family where they traveled from Puerto Rico to Chicago ending with a stay in Lawrence, MA where she was raised. Ana was influenced by her family to be a loving caring woman, always giving her time to others, and she incorporated that into her motherhood. She met her husband Carmelo Talavera in 1987 while out on adventure with her friends. If you knew Ana you know she loved her adventures. They fell in love instantly and knew they both shared a love for a family and decided to start their own. As a mother, aunt, sister and wife she was generous, loving and kind. They only had one son, Carmelo Talavera Jr. in 1989 so she embraced her nieces and nephews as her own and treated them all fairly.  She was directly honest with them but spoiled them as much as she could. Ana worked in the Health care field where she worked for LGH for many years as well as HFH and Hale Hospital. In her free time, Ana loved the outdoors so she was always bike riding, had the children by the beach or even roller skating. She believed staying active was very important to her and the children she was surrounded by. Ana moved to Tampa, Florida in the early 2000’s where she moved back in 2012. She always had a love for dolphins which is what inspired the move. She will be greatly missed by her 4 sisters, Olga Rivera, Marta Miranda, Yolanda Rivera, and Ivy Belghiti, her 1 brother of California, Octavio Rivera. She also left behind one son of Keene, NH, Carmelo Talavera JR 33. Many Nieces and nephews who adored her because she never skipped a beat with them, James Miranda, Katherine Rosa, Ramon Rosa, Jose Castillo, Darlene Castillo, Stephanie Castillo, Jose Santiago III, and many great nieces and nephews.

“We know we can’t have you but we’re happy knowing that the angels have finally got you back. Goodbye to a wonderful woman, a great mother and a beautiful sister and Aunt.”

Ana is survived by her Son, 4 sisters, 1 brother and many nieces and nephews who also made her a great aunt. There will be a service for her for those of you who would like to say their last goodbye to Ana on the 1st of April at 5:00pm to 8:00pm, at Farrah Funeral Home on 133 Lawrence Street, Lawrence, MA 01841.
