Gwendolyn Grace DiFazio

Gwendolyn Grace DiFazio, 81, of Howell, passed away Saturday, January 5, 2019 at home. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY she was a resident of Howell for the past 35 years.

She loved the beach, fishing, lunches with friends, weekly shopping outings, and day trips where she could easily strike up conversations with anyone. Her greatest joy was her family, and she was happiest spending time with her children and grandchildren. She would often say her "Brooklyn roots lead to her Jersey jug handles" or responding to a question with "Mox nix". She will be deeply missed by those that knew and loved her.

She was predeceased by her parents and 4 brothers. Surviving is her beloved husband, George DiFazio of Howell; her children, Darrell Kelly, Cindy and Scott Gerber, Richard and Arnie Noonan, Susan and Mike Over, and Lisa and Joe Nelson; 6 grandchildren: Sean, Desiree, Harry, Kathleen, Jessica, and Nicole; 12 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great- grandchild; as well as her sister, Robin Gillett.

Visitation will be on Thursday, January 10, 2019 from 2-4 pm at John F. Pfleger Funeral Home 115 Tindall Road in Middletown. Cremation will be private. Interment will be held at a later date at Fair View Cemetery in Middletown.
