BETH EMERICK 82 LINCROFT - Sarah (Beth) Emerick (nee McNamara) was born on Christmas day, which was apropos for the way she lived her life and passed away on Feb. 1. 2022. Beth was born in Escanaba Michigan and raised in the small town of Ubly.

She moved to Lincroft in 1965, where she raised her family and lived at 182 Manor Parkway for 45 years. Beth worked as a dedicated RN and went above and beyond for every patient, which developed into lasting friendships with many of them. Beth was a well-liked member of her community, where you were guaranteed to see her at St. Leo’s church, or “the center”. She always had a smile on her face, and when you ran into her, you could count on hearing one of her many cliches. An avid baseball and football fan, the Yankees were her team, and there was no changing the channel if there was a game on.

Although he lived in Bergen County for many years, he never lost his love for the Jersey Shore. From an early age he had a particular fondness for the Navesink River. He spent childhood summers quietly fishing and crabbing on the sparkling water, and later, when he was old enough, you could spot his bright orange hat in the cattails while he hunted ducks in the cold early mornings.

Ronnie was a graduate of Holy Cross School, Ranney School and Fairleigh-Dickinson University. He was a natural encyclopedia of knowledge and a bit of a health nut who could still appreciate the benefits of a perfectly executed croissant or banana cream pie.
