Rosario "Chary" Anolia Martinez de Reyes (83) passed away peacefully in Charlotte, NC with her family by her side on June 15th, 2023 after a long battle with Parkinson's disease and lung cancer.
Born November 8th, 1939 in La Habana, Cuba, she attended Mary Immaculate Catholic boarding school for girls in Key West, FL. Chary married Jose R Reyes (Pepe) in 1966 and moved to Guatemala City in 1968. There Chary and Pepe met a group of Cuban exiles that became their friends and family for many years; celebrating many occasions, including birthdays and Christmas,both in good times and in bad. Chary and Pepe eventually moved to the United States in 1984, residing in Pompton Plains, NJ until their departure to Miami Florida in 1991. They again returned to Guatemala in 1995. After retirement Chary and Pepe moved to Charlotte, NC to be close to their youngest grandchildren.
Chary is preceded in death by her husband, Jose Reyes, and parents Maria Caridad Llanes and Anolio Martinez. She is survived by son Anolio Reyes and wife Stacy (grandchild Alex) of Charlotte, NC; Olga Reyes-Zwirn and Dan Zwirn (granddaughter Breeana and grandson Jose) of Clover, SC; son Jose Manuel Reyes and wife Isabel (grandson Gabriel and wife Kate, great grandsons Rylan and Xavier of PA; granddaughter Carol and husband Nassar of London, UK; granddaughter Susan and husband Juan Carlos, great grandchildren of Rutherford, NJ) of FL; daughter Alina Reyes (granddaughter Sherrise); her sister Vivian Guerra and husband Alberto (nephew Alan and niece Briana) of FL; in addition to her friend and caregiver Aleyda Ruiz of Charlotte, NC.
Many special thanks to her nurse Libba and social worker Shelby through her hospice provider, Via Health Partners. They provided loving care and guidance for the family during Chary's journey through her final year of life.
A celebration of life will occur at a later date with family and friends. Details to be determined.
