Nuncia was born in Havana, Cuba and immigrated to the United States in 1968, with her husband Orestes and then three children, where they made their home in New Orleans, eventually having their fourth child. Over her lifetime Nuncia held many jobs, but none as important as her roles as wife, mother, grandmother and matriarch to her family. Nuncia will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend whose greatest passion was her family. Nuncia leaves us rich in memories and will be missed.
