AGE: 87 • Rumson

Dolores E. Karinja, age 87, of Rumson died Sunday November 12, 2017 at Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, NJ. Mrs. Karinja was born in Hoboken, NJ and lived most of her life in Rumson. She was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years Samuel Thomas Karinja in 2004. She is survived by her children Thomas Karinja and wife Jacqueline, Steven Karinja and fiancé Beatriz Jimenez, Lauren Krystopowicz and husband Edward, Jill Johnson and husband Brandon; 12 grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Dolores was a parishioner of Holy Cross Church. Her dog Sadie was her beloved companion. She spent her life volunteering for various local organizations including Rumson Women's Club, Holy Cross and Birthright. She was an avid reader and enjoyed crossword puzzles. In the late 70's, her entrepreneurial spirit started a consignment shop called Bottom of the Barrel in Sea Bright. Her artistic side inspired her to teach ceramic classes, candle making, wedding floral arrangements, sewing, painting birdhouses and her love for hand stitch quilts for her grandchildren.

The funeral services will be private.
