Little Silver, NJ

Adele Springsteen, 98, of Little Silver passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 31, 2024 at her home. Adele was born Adela Rosa Zerilli on May 4, 1925 in Brooklyn, New York, the youngest of three sisters. She resided in Freehold, New Jersey and Belmont, California before moving to Little Silver, New Jersey. Adele graduated from Freehold Regional High School, where she was given the title of “best dancer in the class.” After graduating, she was employed as a legal secretary for 25 years at Lawyers Title in Freehold, New Jersey and 25 years at Bohannon Development in San Mateo, California. On February 22,1948, Adele married Douglas Springsteen at the St. Rose of Lima Church in Freehold. They celebrated their wedding reception at the Blue Moon Inn in Farmingdale and went on to have three children, Bruce, Virginia and Pam. They celebrated over 50 years of marriage. Adele and Douglas’ adventurous spirit brought them to California, where they enjoyed the West Coast for 25 years. After Adele’s retirement, she and Douglas logged thousands of miles on their cross country adventures. After Douglas’ passing in 1998, Adele returned to her home, New Jersey, to join her large extended family and enjoyed some of the happiest years of her life traveling and surrounded by her sisters, her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her son, Bruce, said of his mother in his memoir: “My mom was truthfulness, consistency, good humor, professionalism, grace, kindness, optimism, civility, fairness, pride in yourself, responsibility, love, faith in your family, commitment, joy in your work and a never-say-die thirst for living and life… and most importantly for dancing.” Her eternally ageless and bright spirit lit up the room. All those who were blessed to know her will never forget the light she brought into their lives. In Adele’s words, “As long as we’re happy, healthy and we love each other, that’s the whole thing.” Adele leaves behind an adoring family and many friends and admirers. Her legacy is love. In lieu of flowers, find yourself “a little rock and roll bar and go out and dance.” Memorial donations may be made to The Women's Alzheimer's Movement. (https://thewomensalzheimersmovement.org/) Adele is predeceased by her parents Anthony and Adelina Zerilli, her husband Douglas Springsteen and her sisters Dora Kirby and Eda Urbelis; and grandson Michael Shave.

Little Silver, NJ

Eleanor Jones Lawes, 99, of Little Silver, passed away December 28th peacefully in her sleep at home after a day surrounded by family. She was fondly known as “Em” to friends and “MeMe” to her family. She grew up in Interlaken and Little Silver, NJ. In grammar school she met Donald E. Lawes Jr. who became the love of her life. They were happily and lovingly married for 59 years! Em was an avid sports woman. When her children were growing up, she enjoyed demonstrating to neighborhood children her ability to drop kick a football. A priority of hers was to make sure children were having fun. She was never happier than when she had neighborhood children sledding on her hill on a snowy winter day, ending with all invited in the house for hot chocolate. Em excelled at golf, winning the Ladies’ Club Championship at Rumson Country Club multiple times. She was a member of the Women’s New Jersey Golf Association and the Metropolitan Golf Association and played in many tournaments and team matches over the years. Her passion for golf and children led her to start the Junior Golf Program at RCC many years ago, which continues to grow and has produced generations of golfers, including her own. Originally, the Junior Program was not sanctioned. At the end of the season, Em quietly held the award ceremony in the Spar Shed. When a board member unexpectedly walked in, he liked Em’s idea and soon got the board’s approval for the program. Em enjoyed many arts and crafts, particularly painting after her children were grown. Many people were lucky enough to be recipients of her numerous painting projects. She also enjoyed traveling with family and visited many places in North America, Europe and Asia. For many years she wintered in Vero Beach, Florida, at Sea Oaks, where she enjoyed tennis, and played golf at Orchid Island Golf Club. Em enjoyed summers at Sea Bright Beach Club where she was an original member of the Six O’clock Club. Em lived a long and inspiring life. When people asked for her secret to longevity, she would always say, “just keep moving.” Em was a loving, caring and generous person to all. She was a loved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to many. She was predeceased by her husband, Donald E Lawes, Jr. in 2006; her parents, Helen and Albert Jones; two brothers, Arthur and Albert; and a special friend, Charles Walker. Em is survived by daughter Phyllis McNerney (Bob) of Harvard, MA, two sons, Donald E Lawes III (Darcy) of Oceanport and William D Lawes (Ann) of Rumson, 8 grandchildren and their spouses, and 11 great-grandchildren, all of whom will miss a very special person who had been a huge part of their lives. Services will be private and under the direction of Thompson Memorial Home of Red Bank, NJ. A Celebration of Life will take place at a future date. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to your favorite charity.
