Elizabeth "Betty" Herczeg
100 years old
Elizabeth passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by family on October 5th, 2019. She was our Hero - a loving, dedicated, caring and devoted wife, mother and grandmother.
Elizabeth was born a full century ago on July 2nd, 1919 in DuPont, Pennsylvania. She grew up in Perth Amboy, NJ along with her 5 brothers and 4 Sisters and is also where she met her husband of 50 years - Gaza Herczeg in 1954. Elizabeth worked at Komar's Apparel company in Perth Amboy and later at Two Guys Department Store in East Brunswick, NJ where she was a proud member of Local 1262 UFCW- but Elizabeth's greatest joy in life was time with her family and care of her home in Toms River, NJ.
Elizabeth is survived by her 2 children, Richard and Elliot and 4 grandchildren, Matthew, Michelle, Richard 2nd and Julia and two great grandchildren, Kamren and Maddison. She is also survived by one remaining sibling, Beatrice Roskey, countless nieces and nephews and two spectacular Daughter's in Law Erika and Lorie, whose daily loving care and devotion to Elizabeth made her journey in the last year of her life one of joy, laughter, smiles and grace. Elizabeth was predeceased by husband Gaza, daughter Rita Mae, parents Theresa and Joseph Roskey and five brothers (Joseph, William, Mickey, Frank and Marty) and three sisters (Marge, Irene and Mary).
A Memorial Service will be held at 9:30 AM on Monday, October 21 at St. Justin Roman Catholic Church in Tom's River, NJ. A gathering of family and friends to celebrate her life will take place at Elizabeth's home on the preceding day - Sunday, October 20th at 1pm. Burial is Private. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations to be made in Elizabeth's name to the Visiting Nurses Association of Central Jersey at https://vnahg.org/giving/

Miss You already Mom .....
God's Garden

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.

He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering,
He knew that you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb.
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered “Peace be thine.”

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone…
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
