Obituary of Cristina Batista

Cristina Alves Batista (nee Alves) was born in Lisbon, Portugal to Manuel and Palmira (Bacalhau) Alves. She earned her degree in Business Administration from the Instituto Superior de Gestão in 1989. Cristina emigrated from Portugal to the United States with her late husband, Fernando (Frank) Batista in 1994. Cristina and Fernando owned and operated numerous successful businesses while raising their sons, Peter and William. Cristina's life always revolved around her family and faith. Her greatest joy was raising her sons to become incredible young men who love God, their family, and their country. Cristina was a devout Catholic and had a beautiful devotion to Our Lady of Fatima. She was preceded to the Kingdom of Heaven by her husband Fernando (Frank) Batista. She is survived by her sons, Peter and William Batista, her parents Manuel and Palmira Alves, and many beloved family members and loyal friends. A private burial will be held in Lisbon, Portugal. A memorial mass will be held at a future date. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to August F. Schmitt Memorial Funeral Home in Elizabeth, New Jersey. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in her memory to the Religious Teachers Filippini (https://www.filippiniusa.org/index.php/giving/donate-online), a religious order that is dedicated to providing a quality Catholic education to all. Cristina believed strongly in their mission and entrusted her sons to their care.
