Annie Mary Hamilton Rooberg

AGE: 86 • Whiting

June 1, 1930-November 10, 2016

Annie Mary Hamilton Rooberg, passed away peacefully at home in her sleep with family at her side.

Cherished only child of Elizabeth and Harold Bainbridge; beloved wife of James Hamilton (deceased 12/71), and of Gustav Rooberg (deceased 12/88); devoted loved and loving mother of James Hamilton (Rachel), Bill Hamilton (Tisha), and Mary Beth Zahn (Roger), and stepmother of Ronald Rooberg (Barbara) and Pennie Waltz (Richard); adored grandmother of Christine Rebelo (Zachary), Jeremy Zahn, and William Hamilton, and step-grandmother of Justin Rooberg (Shira), Ryan Waltz (Lilli) and Megan Kirkpatrick (Kelley); affectionate great-grandmother of Alyssa and Ava Rebelo, and step-great-grandmother to Talya Rooberg, Benjamin Steckel, Kay and Oscar Waltz, and Campbell and Mae Kirkpatrick.

Anne Bainbridge grew up on Liberty Street in Trenton, and graduated from Hamilton High School. In June, 1950 she married Jim, a U.S. Army veteran who'd been stationed in the Aleutian Islands and later rose to Regional Engineer for the New Jersey Department of Transportation. After Jim's death, Anne worked at The Lawrenceville School in the bursar's office, always leaving early to watch her children's soccer and tennis games.

She married Gus in 1975, and they moved to Mantoloking, NJ, just one street away from Camp Osborne, where she had spent every summer of her life, first in a tent with her parents and then in the house her father built on that same lot, where she later spent summers with Jim and their three children. It was also in Camp Osborne that she met Gus, and they spent many happy years together in Mantoloking.

An accomplished painter, pianist and violinist, she also played violin for many, many years with the Crestwood Symphonette.

She was an active parishioner first at St. James in Trenton, and later at St. Mary's in Point Pleasant, where she served as treasurer for years and years. Sadly, her comfortable Mantoloking home was destroyed during Sandy, and she then moved into a lovely home in Cedar Glen Lakes near her daughter Mary Beth, where she spent several happy years, and became a parishioner, when her health permitted, at St. Stephen's.

A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, November 30, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 180 County Road 539, Whiting, NJ 08759.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, 60 East 56th Street, 8th Floor, New York, New York 10022.
