Eta Estomin

Toms River - Eta Estomin of Toms River, died early Tuesday morning, in the home of her son and daughter-in-law, Mark & Penny Estomin. Eta was raised in Lakewood and moved to Toms River when she married Alton in 1941. In 1945, a dozen families formed a cooperative and pooled their resources to start Toms River Nursery School in a local chicken coop. Eta was actively involved and continued to work for the school in many capacities for 40 years until she retired in 1987, after her youngest grandchild attended.

Eta and Alton were very active in the Toms River community as one of the founders of the TR Little League and on the board of Homes for All. They were also active in Congregation B'nai Israel. Eta was active in Sisterhood and was the first female regional President of B'nai Brith. Eta was especially involved in the youth program, USY, and helped to set up the nursery school. Eta's love for children was evident in every aspect of her life, and she is well remembered by many of her former students who have their own children at TRNS and playing on the Maple Street Baseball field.

In 1991 Eta and Alton moved to Leisure Village West, where they were active in the Yiddish Club, Friends of the Manchester Library and the intergenerational Group of Manchester High School.

After her husband of 66 years died, Eta moved to The Orchards where she lived until August 2017, when she moved back to Toms River.

Eta is predeceased by her husband, Alton, and her daughter, Denise Estomin Michaels. She is survived by her daughters, Ellen and her husband Stephan of Pittsburgh, Susan and her husband Michael of Red Bank, her son Mark and his wife Penny of Toms River, 5 grandsons and 10 great grandchildren.

Eta was a wonderful role model for her children and grandchildren, always motivating them to strive for more. She was surrounded by family and a house filled with love at the end of her life. Her legacy of family and helping others will live on long after her death.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday, January 4th at 12:00 p.m. at Congregation B'nai Israel, 1488 Old Freehold Rd., Toms River. Burial will follow at Congregation B'nai Israel Memorial Park. Anderson and Campbell Funeral Home in Toms River is in charge of arrangements.
