AGE: 83 • Elberon
Barbara O'Hagan, 83 of Elberon, passed away surrounded by her loving family on July 9, 2014. Born in Newark, Barbara was raised in N. Arlington. She spent her summers at the Jersey Shore where she met the love of her life William J. O'Hagan, Jr., who predeceased her in February 2009 after 58 years of marriage. Barbara and Bill settled in Elberon in 1963. She was a devoted homemaker and mother to her children. Her home was the focal point of many holiday gatherings and celebrations, where her love of flowers were always displayed; whether it be on the beautiful tables she set or outside in the gardens. These gatherings were enjoyed not only by her immediate family but by her extended family and friends as well. She leaves us with the gift of memories filled with unconditional love and joy.
She was also predeceased by her parents, Francis and Gladys Reuther and her sister, Patricia Hessler. She is survived by her daughter, Nancy Lutsky and her husband Stewart of West Long Branch; her son, Robert O'Hagan and his wife Sharon of Elberon; her daughter, Kathleen Jones and her husband Robert of Monmouth Beach; her granddaughter, Lauren Plunkett and her husband Kyle of Wanamassa; her sister, Nancy Thixton of Ft. Lauderdale, Fl; her brother in law, the Honorable Robert O'Hagan and his wife Christine of Ocean; her sister in law, Kathryn Hewson and her husband Jeff of Ocean, and many loving nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly. Barbara was overjoyed with the anticipation of the arrival of her first great grandchild due this August.
