Ann T. Van Dyke Obituary
Ann T. Van Dyke

AGE: 76 • Oceanport

Ann T. Van Dyke, 76 , of Oceanport passed peacefully surrounded by her loving family after a courageous 6 year battle with ovarian cancer, on Tuesday April 4th.

Born in Elizabeth, NJ she was raised in Keansburg, before moving to Oceanport. Ann graduated from Red Bank Catholic High School, class of 1959. She worked as a secretary in New York City for a short time before marrying the love of her life, James Van Dyke and joyfully raising their five children in Oceanport.

She fell in love with the beach at an early age and spent every day of every summer for nearly 30 years at Driftwood Beach Club, raising her children there with her mother, her sister Monica and her family.

Ann enjoyed later years in Surfside Beach, SC as well as extended visits with her children and grandchildren. One of her dreams came true this past June when her five children took her on the trip of a lifetime to Ireland.

She remained true to herself and was a fighter to the end, never letting cancer define her. She leaves a lasting legacy of love, family, laughter to be carried on by her children and grandchildren. Ann's life was her family, she instilled in each of her children that family was the most important.

Ann was pre-deceased by her husband, James Van Dyke in 2006, her parents, Anna Rose and Martin Lang and her brother, Jack Lang in 2015.

She is survived by her children, Kyle Van Dyke, and his wife, Annette, Chippewa, WI., Kelly Valinoti and her husband Stephen, Oceanport, Caroline Van Dyke, Oceanport, Alison Doughty and her husband Brad, Myrtle Beach, SC and Joseph Van Dyke and his wife Laine, Charlottesville, VA; her siblings, Monica Sperling and her husband George, Oceanport, Maureen Henderson and her husband, Bill, Medford, NJ; sisters-in-law, Janet Van Dyke, Northfield, NJ and Marylyn Van Dyke McMurtry, Montgomery, TX; her beloved grandchildren, Kylie, Ryan, Kayla, Elise, Julia, Savannah, Sienna, Hazel and Joseph; as well as many loving cousins, nieces and nephews.
