We are sad to announce another passing - Lydia "Stella" Gonzalez Haddad of Bethlehem, died Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at Lehigh Valley Hospital, Muhlenberg Campus. Born in Patillas, Puerto Rico she was the daughter of the late Lucia (Huertas) and Venancio Gonzalez. She was a graduate of Liberty High School, Class of '67.

Lydia was a vivacious personality - bright, colorful, and full of life. She was so proud to be one of the first Latino immigrant children from Bethlehem to attend and graduate college. She went on to get her masters in reading. She retired from the Bethlehem Area School District as a reading specialist.

She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Chia Haddad wife of Benjamin Bleier, son, George M. Haddad III, brothers, Hector, Jose, Louis, David, and Miguel Gonzalez, sisters, Carmen Bonora, Annette Zito, and Magaliz Goldenberg, and two granddaughters, Shoshana and Eliana Bleier.

We continue to honor and remember our classmates who've passed on before us. Hopefully, one day, we'll all reunite in a better place.
