Kay M. Froehlich, 87, passed away on Saturday, September 30, 2017, surrounded by her loving family at Southern Ocean Center in Manahawkin, NJ.

She worked for Bell Telephone as a switchboard operator, a waitress at the Italian American Sportsman's Club & Buddy Ricks, many years at General Motors, and then her passion as a Nanny.

Predeceased by her parents, Francis and Mary Shomper; and her siblings, Pat, Thelma, Melvin and Betty; she is survived by three daughters and sons-in-law, Charlene Collamer and companion, Jim Emmer, Paula and Jeff Krauszer and Trudy and Bill Holzbaur; her son-in-law of 34 years, Dan Collamer; four grandchildren, Michelle Collamer-Ford and husband, John Ford, Daniel and wife, Dayna Collamer, Nicolette and Jacqueline Holzbaur; a great-granddaughter, Holly Ford, and her many nieces and nephews.
