MONROE TOWNSHIP - LORRAINE CARUNCHIO passed away peacefully, on Friday, August 3, 2018, at her home in Monroe Township. She was 90 years old.
Born in Jersey City, she resided in South River and Del Ray Beach, FL, before moving to Monroe Township 15 years ago.
Prior to retiring in 1990, she was the showroom manager for 22 years, in ceramic tile sales, at Maxsam Sales in Milltown.
Lorraine had a passion for music and enjoyed entertaining, cooking, crafts, and trips to Atlantic City, but above all, she enjoyed just spending time with her family and seeing her first great grandchild, who brought her so much joy.
She had a heart of gold and the most beautiful smile. To know her is to love her. Her faith, amazing strength, positive attitude, selflessness, importance of family, and unending love, is an inspiration to all. She will be missed tremendously.
Surviving are her husband, of 66 years, Carlo Carunchio, daughters Lori Carunchio and her partner, Ken Gandero, of South River, and Gayle Dragon and her husband, Dennis, of Monroe Township, and his brother Nick; three grandchildren, Danielle, Krystle and Dennis James and his wife, Thiel, her great-granddaughter Hennessy, her caregiver Alma, many nieces and nephews and friends, all of whom she loved.
A memorial visitation will be held on Wednesday, August 8th, from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at The BRUNSWICK MEMORIAL HOME, 454 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick, where a memorial service will take place at 7:30 PM. Cremation will be private. For directions to the funeral home please see the "Services" page.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial contribution may be made to The Eye Bank of New York, 120 Wall Street, New York, NY 10005 (https://www.eyedonation.org/give-now/)
I hope the thought of knowing that she is in God's arms safe can be comforting to you. God bless you and your family.
Gayle: So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend the wake, but my thoughts and prayers are with you. Joanne
