“As a Shrewsbury resident, she was active in the community, and until recent health issues, she led a happily vibrant and independent life. She was an active congregant of St. Anthony Roman Catholic Church of Padua in Red Bank, where she was baptized and married. The daughter of Peter and Theresa DePonte, Italian immigrants who made their lives in and raised their family in Red Bank, NJ, Jennie was the last remaining
child of Peter DePonte.”
