Maritza Vargas-Ramos, Principal and Administrator for Fostertown Elementary School in Newburgh, passed away following a courageous battle with cancer on Monday, May 27, 2019 at Orange Regional Medical Ceneter. She was 56.
The daughter of Brunilda Cortes-Vargas and the late Jose Vargas, Sr, she was born on November 13, 1962 in the Bronx. She married Jorge Ramos and in 1994, they moved to the Middletown area. Maritza was a caring principal and administrator who always gave more to everyone more than she gave to herself. She was all about family and friends, which was everyone in her life. She was loved by so many because of her generosity and care. In her family’s words, “she was the perfect woman”. She overcame cancer and walked every year with her family in the Breast Cancer Walk. She cooked, hosted parties and was an avid bowler. Maritza had an incredibly strong spirit that she shared with the world. She will be dearly missed.
