SUPPLY – Edith Alvarez-Millet, 61, of Supply, N.C., peacefully passed into the arms of Jesus on Sunday, July 31, 2016, at the SECU Hospice House of Brunswick, after a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born April 9, 1955, in Brooklyn, N.Y., a daughter of the late Edith Zeno and Daniel Alvarez. Edith was a dedicated employee of ATMC.
Mrs. Alvarez-Millet loved to sing and led the worship service at Liberty Tabernacle. She was a blessing to everyone she met who would easily be found praying for anyone at any given place. She loved the Lord with all her heart and praised his name until her very last day. She was an example to everyone because her faith never wavered.
She is survived by her loving husband, Hector Millet of Arecibo, Puerto Rico; daughter, Roxanne Lancaster (Stephen); two sons, Victor D. Caraballo (Katie) of Maryland and Nelson Caraballo; three brothers, Daniel Alvarez of Pennsylvania, Bernado and Pablo Travieso of Massachusetts; two sisters, Josefina (Titi) Zeno and Ramona Nieves of Puerto Rico; and nine grandchildren, Heath, Ethan, Miller, Sam, Brooklyn, Jovan, Joseph, Genesis and Joshua.
A celebration of her life will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, 2016, at Liberty Tabernacle, 380 Gray Bridge Road, Shallotte, N.C., with Pastor Deborah Blythe and the Rev.Dr. Rudy Ramphal officiating. A service in honor of Edith will be celebrated after the 9:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, August 21, at St. Brendan’s Roman Catholic Church in Shallotte, N.C.
In lieu of customary remembrances, the family asks with gratitude that donations be made in Edith’s name to the SECU Hospice House of Brunswick, 955 Mercy Lane, Bolivia, NC 28422.
