Gregoria “Sofia” Pineda passed away in the early morning on Thursday, May 9th 2024 at the age of 73.

She is survived by her daughters, Iris and Vivianna, her sons, Edwin and Manny, and her grandchildren, Justin, Miles, Alex, Sophie, Sebastian and Nyla.

Sofia was born in the Dominican Republic but spent most of her life in the Bronx loving and supporting friends and family. She was famous for her yearly Christmas parties that began on the Eve and extended into the early morning, attended by as many as a seventy people: the music so loud you couldn’t but dance and the food flowed from the ovens all night long.

She has found peace, but has not left us as so many have been forever moved by her endless kindness, self sacrificing care, swift sense of humor, embracing warmth and forgiving nature.

Visiting will be Thursday from 4-8pm at Joseph A. Lucchese Funeral Home, 726 Morris Park Avenue, Bronx. Family and friends wishing to attend the visiting virtually may do so by clicking the following link at any time during the visiting hours Pineda Virtual Visitation Interment will be Friday.
