Ileana Lily Muniz

The world lost a true angel on October 25, 2019. Ileana Lily Muniz left this earth unexpectedly in Weston, Florida. A woman consumed with love for others…smart as a whip, creative, imaginative and well-written. An extremely unselfish woman, fearless and giving, filled with an excellent sense of humor; with times of unusual wit and sarcasm. A laugh that can still be heard in the places she loved. A true beach girl, with her “chancletas”, and hats, collecting sand from beaches around the world. She was fun-loving, engaged in reading and world travel, and of course loved to shop. But most of all, Lily Muniz was a motherly figure to the masses; a blessing in so many ways. As a wife, mother, “TT”, sister, friend, teacher, confidant: to know her was to be validated that you could do anything because she knew you could. She had the ability to connect to so many and her love and support will last in our hearts forever. Her only request from everyone she touched was to follow it through and to celebrate every small accomplishment.

Ileana Muniz was born on March 6, 1952 in the Bronx to Milagros Torres and Felix Hernandez. Lily treasured growing up in her father’s home. In the fall of 1970, at Lehman College in the Bronx, she met the love of her life Elpidio Pete Muniz; this was a love affair of a lifetime. A love that was unconditional and committed to succeed for nearly 50 years. From their love came the best gift of their lives; their one and only, Jason. On October 1, 2012, Jason married Heather O’Sullivan, giving Lily the daughter, she never had.

Lily was the sister to 6 beautiful women: Kelly, Nilsa, Debbie, Shelly, Elena, and Melina. Although they entered her life at different times, all valued the same with love and complete adoration. From these women came an abundance of beautiful nephews and nieces.

One of Lily’s strongest character traits was her ability to establish and nurture forever friends. From these forever friends came her exceptional Godchildren: Nicole, Rashaad, Kelisa, Reinaldo and Jonathan.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in honor of Lily’s heart-felt commitment to the “Guardian ad Litem of Palm Beach County.” An organization of volunteers who advocate objectively and solely for the best interest of abused, abandoned and neglected children.

My dear friend, my bonus sister, my mentor in life, has left us. Lily Muniz was the best of the best…intelligent, funny, honest, caring, loving, thoughtful – a guardian angel here on earth to so many, and now a heavenly angel, still watching over us. I love you and miss you, Lil.

To Pete, Jason and family . I am so sorry for your loss. Lily was a beautiful person. I have know Lily since we started William Howard Taft High School in the Bronx. We were 14 years old. Our friendship was great. Lily was in my sweet sixteen party all the girls from Taft and Webster Avenue were there. I have posted some pictures of us at the party. We went on to Lehman College after graduation. She will be missed so very much. She always spoke of her bond with her sisters and dad and the loss of her mom. Pete I think we only met once at Lehman when I was with Maria. The thing I will always remember is the way Lily sang Rain drops keep falling on my head at our school talent show she was beautiful. I am so grateful to Facebook ,because it let us reunite again after so many years apart. I think you guys were married on my birthday and I was married a week later. Lily will never be forgotten by her many girlfriends. She was loved.❤️
