Born and raised in Lyndhurst, NJ, Mrs. Broderick was a graduate of Newark Teachers College now known as Kean University. She moved to Livingston in 1954 to raise her family and later taught at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School for more than twenty years.

Mrs. Broderick was preceded in death by her sister Belle Riggs, her grandson Keith Ritchie and her husband of sixty-eight years, John P. Broderick Sr. As a couple they enjoyed traveling with friends and family in the United States and Europe and many summers at the NJ shore.

She is survived by her four children: Marcia A. Broderick of Calabasas, CA; Kathleen B. Estabrooks and her husband Michael of Cranford; John P. Broderick Jr and his wife Colleen of Brielle; and Kevin M. Broderick and his wife Deborah of Chantilly, VA. Mrs. Broderick is survived by eight grandchildren: Kelly M. Ritchie, Anne Estabrooks Miller, John P. Broderick III, Elizabeth Broderick, Timothy Broderick, Michael B. Estabrooks Jr, Kate Broderick Lew and Keith Broderick as well as four great grandchildren: Kali Ritchie, John William Ritchie, Lauren Miller and Pierce Broderick. Mrs. Broderick is also survived by two beloved cousins, Marcia S. Rogers and Mary Pierson. She leaves behind a devoted friend in Nancy Fitzsimmons.
