Geraldine Alvarez – February 17, 2020

Geraldine (Gerri) Alvarez, 66, of Point Pleasant, passed away on February 17, 2020.

Born in NYC on November 21, 1953 to Nicholas and Gertrude Benetatos, Gerri spent most of her life in Hoboken before moving to Point Pleasant in 2018 and made many friends from her years working in Hoboken’s original Blimpie Base. Gerri enjoyed her rock & roll, dancing, taking 5 mile walks/jogs to the Manasquan inlet and back, spending time on the beach, and swimming in her pool. Gerri showed her heart in 40 years of preparing Thanksgiving dinner for over 30 family and friends.

Gerri rejoins her beloved parents, her siblings, Barbara Brown, Michael Benetatos, and Thomas Harrigan, and her nephew Stephen Aquino in the hearts of her family. Her memory will be honored by her loving husband of 49 years, Victor, her dear son, Jason and his wife Vicki, her siblings, Nicolette Aquino (Steve), Elizabeth Wyble (David), and Andrew Vinas (Bouchra), and many nieces and nephews.


A memorial for Geraldine will be held at the Hoboken Elks Lodge on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at 2:00 PM.
