Yetta Summer Obituary
Yetta Summer

AGE: 94 • Brick


Yetta Summer, passed peacefully on March 6th, at Ocean Medical Hospital in Brick, NJ. Born in Newark, NJ, she was the devoted youngest daughter of the Starr family of Weequahic. Serving refreshments at a USO dance during WWII, she met Joe Summer, subsequently sharing 67 happy years of marriage together. They lived in Newark and Ocean Township before purchasing the Walking S Ranch in Farmingdale, NJ. Yetta enjoyed her secretarial career at Fort Monmouth in Air Defense, and relished her role as wife and mother.

Yetta loved life and people. She appreciated music, movies, theater, food and politics . Despite her gentle, sunny demeanor, she was a fierce Mah Jongg competitor. Yetta looked for the good in everyone and found it. She will be remembered for her sense of humor, her commitment to justice, and above all, her smile.

She is survived by daughters Carol and husband Nicolas Hahn in Fort Myers, Florida; Denise Summer and Barry Schneider in Neptune NJ; and Judith and husband Wayne Edwards. Yetta has three grandchildren; the late Scott Libman, Nicole and husband Mike Lemme, Victoria Hahn and one great grandson.

A celebration of her life will be held later this spring at a date to be announced.
