Obituary of Anna M Kaufman
Loving wife and mother, Anna M. Kaufman, at the age of 91, passed away peacefully on the morning of December 12, 2020. She is survived by her eldest son John Kaufman and wife Katherine, her seven grandchildren, Christian, John, Luke, Keith, Jesse, Joshua, and Justin Kaufman, and her twelve great grandchildren, Shayla, Grace, Shane, Jack, Ethan, William, James, Caleb, Connor, Kevin, Carson and Sara Kaufman. She was preceded in death by her husband of seventy-three years, John Kaufman, three of their sons, William Kaufman, James Kaufman, Robert Kaufman, and her siblings John, Catherine, Louise, and her sister known simply as Aunt Mickey.
Anna was born on January 19, 1929 in Weehawken, NJ. Before Anna met her husband, she worked in a Christmas ball factory where she would dip glass ornaments into lacquer. She met her husband, John Kaufman, and the two were wed shortly after his return from his World War II deployment in 1947.
Anna was an exemplary home-maker, raising four boys whom she loved dearly and she excelled at caring for her husband. She was a strong woman who led a humble and selfless life. It was in her nature to put other’s needs well before her own. Whenever there was work to be done, Anna without hesitation, always offered her help. Anna was gifted with an incredible intelligence that she modestly kept under wraps. She was quick to offer praise to others, but rarely spoke of herself. Anna enjoyed roller skating in her youth. She was an avid knitter and gifted more crocheted baby blankets than one could possibly count. Her faith brought her peace, joy, reassurance and hope throughout her life. She was a member of the Rosary Altar Society and she was an Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion at St. Martha’s Roman Catholic Church in Point Pleasant, NJ. By virtue of her strong conviction within her faith, Anna held onto the belief that her loved ones were always watching over her, and that she would one day rise to see them once again.
Anna Kaufman is now watching over her family and friends, and she will continue to quietly share her love with those she cared most for. She will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved her
