Obituary of Lorraine E. McGarry
On December 28, 2021, Lorraine E. McGarry, née Mans, of Point Pleasant, New Jersey passed away peacefully at home at age 95.
Born in 1926, Lorraine, a lifelong resident of New Jersey, was the daughter of Ferdinand Mans and Aurea B. Mans, née San Souci. Raised in Newark, Lorraine and her parents spent many happy years at their summer residence in Colts Neck. After WWII, Lorraine married Edward J. McGarry and together they moved to Union to raise their children.
Family, home, church, and her dogs were Lorraine’s passions. Widowed early in life, Lorraine became strong and independent. She was a constant in the lives of her children and grandchild. Later as Lorraine’s parents aged, she cared for them in her home. A person of faith, Lorraine was a member of St. Martha’s Roman Catholic Church of Point Pleasant where she was a Eucharistic minister, and a member of the Rosary Alter Society. She was also a member of the Glorious Years Senior Group at St. Peter's Church. Lorraine’s lifelong passion for dogs led her to become active in greyhound rescue and over the years she adopted four rescued greyhounds.
Lorraine was predeceased by her husband, Edward John McGarry. She is survived by their devoted children, Stephen E. McGarry (Susan Spicer-McGarry), Susan McGarry Quartararo (Dr. Russel Quartararo, DVM), loving grandson, Christopher Quartararo, her brother-in-law, Michael Frascella, nephew, Paul Frascella, and niece, Karen Frascella.
At 11 a.m., Tuesday, January 4 a Funeral Liturgy will be celebrated at the Church of Saint Martha, 3800 Herbertsville Road, Point Pleasant, followed by interment at Franklin Memorial Park, North Brunswick.
