SPARTA - Evelyn Sanchez passed away Sunday, April 5, in the evening, at St. Barnabas Hospital Livingston, from complications with COVID-19 at the age of 62. Born in Vineland, Evelyn resided in Sparta for over 35 years.
She was the daughter of Angelina Gregory and Matteo Gomez [predeceased] and sister to Angelo, Wilson, Hector, Alberto, and Gloria. Evelyn was the loving wife of John Sanchez for 39 years and mother to Jessica and David and her stepchildren, Evelyn, Manuela, Denise, and Juan Manuel [pre-deceased].
Besides devoting her time to her family, Evelyn was a partner in the operation of the family business, Emergency Pest Control, Orange, which she managed with her husband.
Evelyn will leave a legacy of love, kindness and generosity that will never be forgotten by her husband, children, stepchildren and step-grandchildren and anyone who knew her. We will never forget her smile and how she loved her husband, John.
Services will not be held at this time due to State mandate; however, at a later date we will get together to celebrate her life.

To the family of Evelyn Sanchez, I am so devastated only to be hearing about Evelyn's passing. I am so very sorry for your loss. Evelyn was the first person I spoke to when we first called Emergency Pest Control when we first bought our home over 17 years ago. Evelyn was always so kind to us and always treated us like family. Her kindness is what I will remember the most about her. Sending prayers to your family. Love, Stefanie Santiago

A Celebration of Life is not so much what is said at a funeral inside of a church, but rather it is the life one lived while they as we all are here on earth temporarily as we all are. However, it's the love, sharing, caring and giving and sowing into the and touching the lives of others. My Sister in law touched many lives and many we never knew I am sure just by all of the loving and kinds expressions of love that are being shared by so many.

For the last 9 years all I have heard from my beloved Alberto and his brothers Wilson and Angel was how much their big sister cared about and looked out for them. And I know for a fact she has been there for them at times they needed her most. She was their sister but she was like a Mom as well. And they all have shared so many memorable moments of family fun times. And Albert her baby brother, loved his big sister and always talked about what a "GOOD COOK" Evelyn was. She truly has left a legacy and a some big shoes to fill for the her children and generations to come.

Take the wisdom she has left and don't let her down, make her proud, you because she is an angel now looking down and watching over us all.Many has commented on her smile, a beautiful she did have. I want to say to the family "TO LIVE IN THE HEARTS OF THOSE WE LOVE IS NEVER TO DIE" AND " WHEREVER A BEAUTIFUL SOUL HAS BEEN THERE IS A TRAIL OF BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES.
R.I.P. Sister in law

I am so sorry for the loss of your cherished family member. I know the Gomez Brothers, we all served together in the National Guard HHB 2-116th and were all deployed together in Afghanistan 2005-2006. Nothing can replace the loss of a loved one. Remember her smile, and never forget the memories, they last forever.

Luis - evelyn but as all her grandchildren known her as nana. You were a great person with gigantic heart with never ending love. I'm remembering back to all the times I would come over and you would always want a bear hug that I know you loved so much and coming over on the days you were cooking and tell me you made my favorite rice and beans. For these last few months I been living in the apartment where you work I was grateful for seeing you and grandpa everyday. You were so great to me coming in a checking on me brought me food when you could. The time I brought my snake and lizard into the office you were a little scared but then opened up to them. On behalf of my brother as well he is grateful for living so close to you and something me and my brother say when we complain about working till 3-4 o'clock is how nana works till about 8 so we need to stop complaining. She was such a hard worker and a great women with ability to do wonderful things. Miss your smile miss and love you nana appreciate everything you have done for me may you rest in peace

Not a day goes by that I dont yearn to give you a big hug and see that beautiful smile of yours. I miss you more than my words can even describe. I would do anything to give you one more hug. I miss our talks, the laughs, spending time with you, and everything else about you.

Youve been in my life since I was 6 years old, so the truth is, I dont know how to live without you. I keep thinking this is just a nightmare and Im going to wake up and call you to tell you about this crazy dream. I hurt, my heart is full of sorrow and pain, a pain that really hurts so much. You werent just my stepmom but my best friend, my confidant, the best nana my boys could have. The love we all had for each other is a love and bond that only we shared. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful memories you made so wonderful for us, for being the glue to our family and for the endless love you showed my dad. We are lost without you but your legacy will live on. I, my family will keep you close to our hearts everyday of our life and I promise to look after daddy. Rest In Peace Evelyn, rest easy until we meet again. Never forget I will love you forever

A beautiful soul, a devoted wife, mother,sister, daughter and friend. I will miss you terribly. There are no words to express how heartbroken we are. I'm writing this message but it feels surreal. How do we accept that you left us. God please wrap your arms around my family as we attempt to accept your will. Guide us through this unbearable pain. We will cherish your memory Evelyn and you will live in our hearts forever
