Jean was a devoted and loving mother and grandmother who always enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Mom-Mom was a real hit with the grandkids when they earned a dollar each time they said a difficult word. She was a proud member of Catholic Daughters at St. James Church in Woodbridge, NJ and also worked the Woodbridge Election Board every year. Surrounded by so many friends and family she enjoyed ceramics, Zumba, Country line dancing and playing Bingo. Jean loved to cook delicious meals for her family and they always ate dinner together. Mom would always say “family is forever”. She was known in the kitchen for her famous roast beef and meatballs and also loved to brag about her Italian heritage. As an avid beach bum she loved spending her summers at Avon and LBI. A favorite past time for Jean was going to NYC to see the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and the Rockettes and going to Broadway plays.
