Obituary of Lissette Gutierrez

Please share a memory of Lissette to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Lissette Gutierrez (Lissi), 58, of Clifton, New Jersey, died January 24, at Morristown Memorial Hospital. Lissette was born December 24, 1963, in Quemado de Guines, Cuba. She immigrated with her parents to the United States in 1966. She attended Memorial High School in West New York, New Jersey. She continued her education at Montclair State University, graduating in 1986 with a Bachelor’s of Liberal Arts. She spent the majority of her professional career working as an executive assistant at several financial institutions; most recently at BlackRock. For the past several years, Lissette served as the Executive Assistant to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Montclair State University. Lissette was a beautiful soul who touched her family and friends in immeasurable ways. She always let the people in her life know how much they meant to her. Lissette acknowledged birthdays, anniversaires and personal events via her greeting cards and personal notes. She selflessly gave her time to numerous charitable organizations especially those that supported art programs in schools. She enjoyed traveling, exploring new places (notably small bookstores), knitting and crafting of all kinds. She loved attending Broadway shows and concerts, reading, and watching classic Hollywood films. There are no words to describe how much Lissette will be missed by her family and friends. She is survived by her brother, Rodolfo Gutierrez of Morris Plains and his wife, Nicole Gutierrez, and her nephew Matthew Gutierrez. She was preceded in death by her father, Rodolfo Gutierrez and mother, Dulce Maria Gutierrez. A funeral mass will be celebrated on Saturday, February 5, 2022 at a time to be determined at St. Ann Church in Parsippany, New Jersey. Guests are required to wear masks while indoors. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations may be made in her memory to St. Jude’s Children Hospital (
