Obituary of Ethel Huseland Mulligan
Ethel Huseland Mulligan, 89, of Brick, died peacefully at home, surrounded by her loving and dedicated family, on Friday, April 27, 2018.
She was born, March 9, 1929 in Hoboken to the late Ethel and Charles Huseland. She was raised in Jersey City and graduated from Dickinson High School, where she met the love of her life, Lawrence F. Mulligan and were married on Mother's Day, 1950. They lived in Secaucus and moved to Brick in 1953.
Ethel was a long time member of the Brick Presbyterian Church and a life member of the Breton Woods Fire Company, Ladies Auxiliary.
She instilled her love of animals in her children and always told them to look for the good in everyone. She had a great sense of humor and a kind, generous heart. Memories of Ethel will be forever cherished by those who loved her. Affectionately called, "MiMi" by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, she leaves a chain of love that will never be broken.
Ethel was predeceased by her beloved husband, of over fifty-seven years, Lawrence F. Mulligan in 2008; her infant daughter in 1956; and sister, Gloria Feuerbach in 2015.
