Graziella Rejane Vieira Goncalves passed away on Sunday Evening, July 9th 2017 at Chilton Medical Center with her loving and dedicated fiancé, Jeff by her side. She was 43.

Graziella was born and raised in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. She came to the United States in 2000 and lived in Kinnelon before moving to Parsippany.

Above all things in her life, Graziella was most passionate about the lights of her life, her children, Nina and Christian. She was a proud citizen of Brazil and the United States, maintaining homes in both countries, and she took great pleasure in speaking Portuguese, English and Spanish. Graziella received her Bachelor’s degree in Administration from the Pontificate Catholic University of Minas Gerais, Brazil. She was also a devoted homemaker who loved to travel, knit, paint, draw, cook, read and an occasional glass of wine.

Graziella took great pleasure in meeting people from all over the world, from all walks of life, and maintaining those friendships. She was very proud of her career as a Certified Municipal Court Administrator for the Borough of Riverdale. She was a member of the Jacksonville Chapel in Towaco and the Vice President of the Municipal Court Administrators Association of Morris County.

Graziella was a kind and gentle soul who shared her love and sincerity with all that knew her. She loved life and had a smile that would light up any room she walked into. She will be missed by all who knew her, especially, her Fiancé, Jeffrey T. Storms; her children: Marina ‘Nina’ Columbia and Christian Sokol; her parents: Geraldo Sergio Goncalves and his wife, Silvana Alves and her mother, Miriam Nancy Vieira; her brothers: Sergio Goncalves, Marco Goncalves and his wife, Debora and Caio Goncalves; her sister: Ana Paula Alves; and her nieces, Gabriella De La Cruz and Juliana Goncalves. Additionally, she will be missed by her entire extended family in Brazil, the Storms family, as well as her dedicated and faithful friends.
