Carmen Dominguez, born Carmen Fernandez Queiruga on June 1, 1939, in Queiruga, Spain, passed away on January 25, 2024, at the age of 84, in Edgewater Park, NJ. Carmen is survived by her loving family, including her brother, Emilio Fernandez Queiruga, her sister-in-law, Dolores Queiruga Queiruga, and her sister, Pilar Fernandez Queiruga. She is also survived by her daughter, Maria Scarpa, and son-in-law, Frank Scarpa, her daughter, Noli Dominguez, and son-in-law, Felix Sestayo. Carmen will be deeply missed by her grandchildren, Nicole DeGrande, and her Husband Pietro DeGrande, Michael Rego, Christina Freitas and Her Husband Sergio Freitas, Frank Scarpa Jr, Gregory Scarpa, Mark Scarpa and his wife Tierney Scarpa, Maya Scarpa, and Qiana Scarpa. She was also a cherished great-grandmother to Julian Tadena and Francesca DeGrande. Carmen was also a beloved aunt to her nieces and nephews who she cared for as her own, as well as a treasured member of her community in Ironbound Newark, NJ. Carmen was preceded in death by her husband Victorino Luis Dominguez, Her mother Maria Queiruga, father Camilo Fernandez, brothers, Joaquin Fernandez Queiruga, Francisco Fernandez Queiruga, and her sisters, Maria Fernandez Queiruga and Esther Mos. Carmen left behind the most important legacy, the legacy of unconditional love. There is no greater feeling than being in the presence of someone who loves you unconditionally. To know that there is no judgment or stress, just love and warmth and the familiarity that only they can provide. She gave us that constantly and consistently quite literally until she took her last breath. I feel lucky that in this lifetime I was able to experience the type of love she had to offer and can only hope to be able to offer my own family a fraction of the comfort, love, and bond that she provided. In spending time with my family these past few days I’ve heard several of us say how empty her room feels. I think I speak for all of us when I say her room is not the only empty space she’s left. There’s a hole in our world where she used to be and we are all just walking around it. Instead of a physical space she now occupies a permanent space in our hearts, and this is where she’ll remain until we meet again. A viewing for Carmen will be held Tuesday January 30th from 6-9pm at the Page Funeral Home, 302 E. Union St., Burlington. A memorial mass will be held Thursday, February 1st at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church, 259 Oliver St., Newark, NJ 07105 with burial to follow in Holy Cross Cemetery, 340 Ridge Avenue North Arlington, NJ 07031.
