Josephine A. "Joanne" Lurig Obituary
Josephine A Lurig

AGE: 74 • Seaside Heights, NJ

Josephine (Joanne) Lurig, 74, of Seaside Heights, NJ, passed away Wednesday, August 30, 2017 at Community Medical Center, Toms River.

Joanne was born and raised in Jersey City, NJ but her love of the Jersey Shore brought her to Seaside Heights, moving there permanently close to 50 years ago.

She was a Toll Collector on the New Jersey Turnpike Authority for 20 years. After retiring, Joanne continued to work, always close to the beach. Joanne's kind heart and giving nature has touched many throughout her life. Joanne (and her wonderful cooking) will be missed by many people, most of all by her only child.

She was a parishioner of Our Lady of Perpetual Help RC Church, Seaside Heights, and was a member of the church's Rosary Altar Society, and the Seaside Heights Senior Club.

Joanne was predeceased by her parents Joseph and Mary Costa.

Joanne is survived by her daughter Lynette Lurig and partner Robert Marcolina, her beloved cats Ethel and Ali and her brother Frank Costa.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered Thursday, September 7, 2017 10:00am at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Seaside Heights. A memorial gathering will follow from 12:00pm - 3:00pm at the Timothy E. Ryan Home for Funerals, 809 Central Ave., Seaside Park, NJ.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, 100 Grant Ave, Seaside Heights, NJ 08751.
