Mercedes Camejo


Mercedes Camejo, 86, of Glen Rock, NJ, loving wife and mother, passed away on February 9, 2018.

She is survived by her husband Orlando, and her three children, Orlando, Leticia, and Maria, and six grandchildren Julian, Sarah, Alexa, Tyler, Jacqueline, and Megan.

Mrs. Camejo was born in Havana, Cuba and lived there until she left the turmoil of Castro’s regime in the mid-1960s along with her husband and children to Madrid, Spain.  After several years living in Madrid, Mercedes and her family migrated to the U.S. and they all lived happily over her lifetime in Miami, FL, Mobile, AL, New Orleans, LA, and Denver, CO until finally settling down in Glen Rock, NJ in 1980 until her death.

Mercedes worked at Coleman Elementary School in Glen Rock as a school monitor for many years taking care of school children during their recesses, while simultaneously working at the Gifted Child Society of Glen Rock as an office assistant.  

Her compassionate, selflessness, and charitable nature as a spouse, mother and friend will be in our hearts forever.
