Erica Najarro Obituary

It is with a heavy heart that we share the passing of Erica Najarro. Erica was just 32 years old and lived with her caregiver Catherine Hyacinthe in Hopewell’s Shared Living Program. Her death was sudden and unexpected, ending her life far too soon. Erica was nicknamed ‘Ms. Dancing Queen’ given her passion for dance which was one of her many great qualities and overall love of life. She loved living with Catherine and the rest of the family and during these past two years she experienced wonderful and exciting activities, which included things like enjoying an outdoor movie in the back yard on a warm Saturday evening.  Accessing her community, going to their local YMCA, museums, events, getting her nails & hair done and of course shopping.  Erica loved her guardian, Susan Braus, who has supported her for the past 9 years and was closely involved in Erica’s life, her team and was an amazing & strong advocate!  Erica attended the Price Center in Newton, her day program, since May of 2022 and she absolutely loved all of the staff and her peers there.  She always talked about the different parties and activities they did, and of course she loved getting her nails done there as well.

While taken too soon, she lived a meaningful 32 years and left an indelible mark on those she came to know and love.  She was a caring & special person, and on Wednesday February 21st Beth Israel Hospital paid tribute to her when they did the “Walk of Honor” on her way to her organ donor surgery.

Erica, you will be missed by all that had the privilege in knowing you.
