Renate "Renee" Worth, 75, of Jackson, New Jersey, passed away on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at the home of her daughter in South River New Jersey.
She was born in Ruppur, Germany and raised in Alberta, Canada and Frankfurt, Germany. In 1963, she followed her husband-to-be to the US and they married that same year, settling in New Jersey. She was employed as a server for more than 50 years, finishing her long career at All Seasons II Diner where she was well known and admired by many co-workers and customers-turned-friends for her friendliness, sincerity and generosity.
She was a former Boy Scout Den mother, a past member of the Farmingdale Grange and a past Matron of Farmingdale Junior Grange. She loved animals, reading any novel, spending time with her grandchildren, traveling all over the US and Europe, and she was always up for a trip to AC (she'll drive).
Renate was predeceased by her father, Johann Mueller in 1969, her mother, Dorothea in 2002, her devoted husband of 56 years, Melvin, in 2019, a brother, Carl Mueller, in 2018, her mother-in-law Helen Roe in 2022, a sister-in-law, Linda Smith, in 2022 and a grandson-in-law, Michael Wilson, in 2022.
She is survived by her loving children; Brian Worth, Sr and his wife, Joyce, of Virginia, Lisa Feggulis and her husband, Gus, of New Jersey, and John Worth and his wife, Cheryl, of Ohio, grandchildren; Brian Jr., Alyssa, Vikki and her husband, Eric, Amalia, Sofia, Eleni, Kiersten, Billy and Andrew, a great-grandchild; Ariella, a brother-in-law, Raymond Roe, of Freehold, siblings; Manfred Mueller, Billy Mueller and his wife, Alena, and Betty Kohler, all residing in Germany. Many nieces and nephews and several furry family members including Taylor, Indy, Nova and Ghost. A very special thank-you is given to Renate's nephew Bruce Smith and cousin Chrissy Shade for the much appreciated help and support given during Renate's illness.
