Epifania Flores Rivera
01.20.1946 – 07.04.2021
Epifania Flores Rivera, age 75 of Hartford, Connecticut, passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 4, 2021 at Hartford Hospital with her family by her side. She was born January 20, 1946 in Caguas, Puerto Rico to her late loving parents Concepcion Flores and Ramona Rivera.
Epifania was a committed, caring and unselfishly mother to her children Maria Flores (Chunga), Jorge Alamo (Tito), Evaristo Rivera (Juni), Gerardo Rivera, Carmen Rivera (Lucy) and Llara Vergara.
She was a proud grandmother to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A beloved sister to her siblings, a kind aunt to many nieces and nephews and a beautiful, amazing friend. She dedicated much of her time as a caregiver to so many.
Epifania known as “Pifin” loved spending time with her family, at many family gatherings. She was known for her joyous environment and taking care a village of people. Her home was a safe haven to many, a place to gather, dance, listen to music, laugh, and just enjoy her many jokes. She was a size of a mouse with the balls of a bull and a kind soul who improved the lives of others. She lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures, chatting with friends, family and spending time with her children, nephews, nieces, grandkids, and great-grandkids. Pifin had an uncanny ability to reach people in a deep and positive way. She had a bright and energetic personality and was known for her ability to sense when people needed her help. Her sense of humor and tough love will always be missed. She touched many lives with her generosity and passion for life. To one of her many sayings “cojelo suave con la embuste”
She is survived by her sister Maria Flores (Titi Cuca) and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was predeceased by her father Concepcion Flores (Concho), mother Ramona Rivera, sister Maria Malgadalean Rivera (Titi Monin), Carmin Flores Rivera (Titi Carmin), Elisa Flores, brothers Diego Flores and Roberto Flores.

When I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me. I want no rites in a gloom-filled room. Why cry for a soul set free! Miss me a little, but not too long, and not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared, miss me but let me go. For this journey we all must take, and each must go alone. It’s all part of the Master plan a step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick of heart, go to the friends we know and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds. Miss me but let me go.
