Jean Amend McCabe, a long-time resident of Sea Girt, passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, January 23, 2020. Jean was born in East Orange and raised in South Orange before moving to Sea Girt in 1959. Jean was a graduate of Columbia High School, Maplewood and attended the College of St. Elizabeth in Morristown. She dedicated her adult life to raising her family and was a long-time active parishioner at St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Sea Girt. She also volunteered on the Sea Girt Election Day Polling Committee for many years, and enjoyed her part-time work at Stern’s Department Store in Neptune after her children headed off for college and careers.

Jean married her late husband, Col. Jerome J. McCabe, USAF, in 1951. During the early years of their marriage they resided in Washington DC, Mexico City, and Kansas City KS, before moving to Sea Girt.

She was also pre-deceased by her sisters, Kathleen Gilligan and Joan Amend, by two infant children, Stephen McCabe and George McCabe, and by her son-in-law, Joseph Addonizio.

I was very sorry to read of the passing of our neighbor Jean McCabe. We would always wave to each other when she drove by, and later when she was out for a walk with her aide. Rest In Peace.
