Emily Caglione

AGE: 92 • Forked River

Emily Caglione passed away peacefully on Monday, December 19, 2016 at the age of 92.

Emily was born in Morris Plains in 1924 to the late Frank and Minnie Blanchard. She was one of seven children. During World War II she worked at a munitions plant where she met her beloved husband Anthony Caglione, whom she married in 1948. They greatly enjoyed the shore, moving to Forked River in 1975 after living in both Cedar Knolls and Dover. She was a very social and engaging person who was known for her light heartedness; she was never at a loss for a witty joke. She was also known for her sewing and knitting skills which she used to help others, particularly in her church.

Predeceased by her husband Anthony (1993), she leaves many happy memories to her nephews George Giordano and his wife Sue, and Greg Giordano and his wife Susan; her niece Deborah Blanchard; her grand-niece Anne Correia and her husband Jason; brother Ernest Blanchard, and many more loving relatives and dear friends. Donations in her memory can be made to .
