Ellen Hodgson

AGE: 93 • Piscataway

Ellen Hodgson, 93, of Piscataway, died Oct. 5, 2015 at Somerset Valley Rehabilitation Center in Bridgewater. She was born in Stanton, where she also grew up and then lived in Plainfield before moving to Piscataway in 1947. She was predeceased by her husband Raymond in 2007, a daughter Diane Hoadley in 1987 and her son-in-law Thomas McDermott in 2010. Ellen worked for JG Mulford Insurance Co. in Plainfield as an insurance representative before retiring when she was 70. Ellen had the distinction of being the first person in NJ to have a heart valve replaced without having to have open heart surgery. She also was a member of the Arbor Rescue Squad Ladies Auxillary, where she ran the kitchen during Bingo and at one time had been a Girl Scout Leader. She bowled until she was 85, loved the Mets, and was a voracious reader. Ellen was a loving mother and grandmother who will be sadly missed by all.

Surviving are 2 daughters Gayle Hodgson of Piscataway, Judy Hodgson of Durham, CT., 1 grandchild Peter, and 2 great grandchildren Skyler and Zeegan.
