Barbara O. Wingerter, born August 23rd, 1927, to the late Oscar & Anne Oschwald, passed away on November 3, 2017. She spent her childhood in Matawan, moving later to Eatontown, Red Bank, Fair Haven then back to Red Bank. A lifelong resident of Monmouth County, she was a summer resident of Lavallette, NJ since 1931.
