Evelyn Monica Camarco
Evelyn "Monica" Camarco, age 58, of Deerfield Beach, Florida, passed peacefully into the arms of the Lord Jesus on March 17, 2021, surrounded by her loving family. Evelyn "Monica" was a loving wife and had the spirit of a "Great Mother" to all she touched with her kindness and loving care. She bestowed her love freely on all of God's children with joy and compassion. Whether a close family member or a stranger, her compassionate "SMILE" would light up the room and bring "JOY" and "LOVE" to all those she touched in her life.
Evelyn had a childlike spirit that filled any room with joy. She would rejoice in the beauty of a day when the blue sky filled with white cumulus clouds. Evelyn's hobbies included bicycling and swimming at the beach. Evelyn's talent for dancing was exceptionally well developed, and she could dance easily for hours at a time. There were many times when she would take a ride with her brother Ivan on his motorcycle. As a gifted writer, she had a talent for writing spiritually themed children's stories. Evelyn, known for her love for God, expressed deep concepts of God's love with simple language and visual narratives that children could understand. Though known to the world as Evelyn Monica Camarco, she will always be known as Monica to her family and closest friends.
Monica is my heart and joy, the most beautiful wife and loving companion that our Father God could give me. She made me a better man and always took the high road. She was long-suffering and patient with me and all those in her family who needed her loving support. I have many phrases in which my heart rejoices in my beloved wife. She is my "Little Angel," my "Sunshine," My "Happiness," and "Joy." My heart is broken into pieces; therefore, I will honor Monica's memory by calling her "Heavens Little Star," a great Saint in the Kingdom of God. She has a special place in heaven as a beautiful flower in the "Kings Garden." We were delighted when married on August 3, 2007, in Queens, N.Y.; what a blessed celebration of life that day was.
I, Michael Camarco, Evelyn's loving husband, hope to share a glimpse of the support my "Little Angel" gave me after the 911 tragedy in New York. In the early part of 2002, Evelyn joined with me in a compassionate healing ministry to the New York City Firefighters and their families. We visited firefighter's children in hospitals and prayed for them; encouraged a brother firefighter to take some respite time off while caring for his bedridden wife. Evelyn and I helped to start a not-for-profit organization called "Water for Life" in Africa. This organization helped to build water wells in Nigeria. Our efforts supported a Nigerian Catholic priest named Christopher Okorie to relieve the inferior water quality from a polluted stream. Evelyn and I also fed the poor at the "East New York Women's Shelter" as we supported the efforts of a local women's prayer group from Brooklyn N.Y., which fed the poor monthly lead by Mrs. Vina Blackman from Far Rockaway Queens.
Her never-ending prayers of loving support have blessed this world in ways we will never comprehend. I am forever grateful for her patience and loving support that she gave freely to me, her family, and our friends.
Evelyn was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala. on May 4, 1962. Her maiden name is Evelyn Monica Schumann, and she is survived by her loving brother Ivan and her sisters Ivette and Diana. Evelyn is loved very much by her mother, Irma. She came to the United States in 1968 and grew up in Bayside Queens, N.Y. She graduated from Frances Lewis High School in 1980. Then graduated from Queensborough Community College, earning a BS and her RN in Nursing. Evelyn inspired her siblings by being the first to graduate from college in her family. She has been a Registered Nurse for more than 25 years. Her standard was in giving loving and compassionate care. There are thousands of patients who have received her caring touch and smile.
Evelyn was raised a Catholic and was baptized again as an adult. Though some may call her born-again Christian, she always has considered herself a "Universal Christian," loving all of God's children in God's Kingdom. She is a true Disciple of Jesus Christ and an inspiration to her family and friends. We experienced the love of God in her kind words of encouragement and her never-ending love through her joyous smile. "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." (John 13:34-36) ESV
