Jean Owens Obituary
HAMILTON - Jean Owens, 86, of Hamilton, passed away on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, at Hamilton Continuing Care Center in Hamilton, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Trenton, she was a lifelong area resident. Mrs. Owens was a graduate of Trenton Central High School. She was employed by Lenox China as a design painter. She also worked at the Public Meat Market in East Trenton, at Silk's Drugstore in Hamilton, at Atlantic Products, also in Hamilton, and at her family's neighborhood market, Bullaro's Grocery Store, in East Trenton. The occupation that she loved most, however, was as a wife, mother, and homemaker. She was a former member of St. Joseph's R.C. Church and was an active member of St. Anthony's Parish in Hamilton until her residence at Hamilton Continuing Care Center. Mrs. Owens enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, playing bingo, and dancing with her favorite partner, her husband John, at the Elks, the American Legion, the Catholic War Veterans, and especially on their "Polka Weekends." Many Hamilton residents recognized Mrs. Owens and her husband as "that couple I see walking every morning." She was a mother nature, of sorts, when it involved the birds in her backyard, and even had a "pet" cardinal. She especially loved spending time with her family and they all treasured their vacations together in Walt Disney World. Predeceased by her parents, John and Frances (Spatola) Bullaro, her brothers, Frank, Charles, John, Joseph "George", Frank "Tweets," and James Bullaro, and her sister, Charlotte Prusko. She is survived by her devoted husband of 60 years, John A. Owens; her loving daughters and son-in-law, Denise and Debra Owens and Herman Kummler; her sisters-in-law, Sophie and Rita Bullaro and Jean Owens; numerous nieces, nephews, their spouses, children, and grandchildren. Funeral services will be held on Friday, August 1, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. at the Saul Memorial Home, 1740 Greenwood Avenue, Hamilton, NJ. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, August 1, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Anthony's Parish, 626 South Olden Avenue, Hamilton, NJ.
