Jane Orifici

AGE: 97 • Avon

Jane Orifici, 97, of Avon passed away at home on April 3, 2017. After graduating from Asbury Park High School in 1938, Jane attended New Jersey College for Women and was a graduate of the Ann May School of Nursing. Jane was a smart, accomplished woman whose boundless curiosity, great good humor, devotion to family, love of nature, and innate decency inspired everyone who met her. She was pre-deceased by her husband of 45 years, John, who died in 1994. she is survived by her son Tom, of Queen Creek, Arizona, and his wife, Sylvia, and her son John, of Atlantic City, and his wife Rebecca. She is also survived by her best friend, companion, and caregiver, Zena Burlaka, whose love and compassion set a new standard for human kindness. Finally, Jane leaves behind many nieces and nephews who will treasure her memory.

The family would also like to acknowledge the caring and dedication of the Meals on Wheels volunteers of interfaith Neighbors and the nurses and staff of Meridian Hospice. All of these people enabled Jane to live out her life in the comfort and dignity of her own home, and they are very much appreciated.

A memorial service will be held in the near future. Anyone wishing to commemorate Jane's life could consider donating to an animal rescue or welfare organization of their choice. Popcorn Park Zoo and Alley Cat Allies were two of Jane's favorites.
