Nadja Ippolito, 71, passed away on January 20, 2022. Even though a failing body took her away from this world, her genuine and loving heart left a beacon of light for all who knew her.
Nadja is survived by her husband, Martin, step-son, Nick, his wife Michelle, two cherished grandchildren, Vincent and Charlotte; sisters, Catharina, Maria Guenther, and her husband Charles; a nephew, Joseph Stanley, along with extended family, god-children and many friends. She was pre-deceased by her brother George.
Born in Germany in 1950 as the first of four children, she immigrated with her parents to the United States as a young child. Nadja lived a full and energetic life and was a devoted wife. She loved travel and visited many places, participated in many civic organizations in her community throughout her lifetime. She was creative, loved kids, a good laugh and enjoyed above all else to be part of the action--as a committed caregiver, friend, family member. She will be remembered for being always willing to lend a patient hand to those in need with a smile on her face and a generous spirit that was extended to everyone.
Friends may pay their respects at Barnegat Funeral Home, 841 W. Bay Ave. Barnegat, NJ on Sunday, January 23, 2022 from 2-5 PM. A Service of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday at 10:00 AM at Barnegat Funeral Home. Entombment to follow in Ocean County Memorial Par, Waretown, NJ. (www.BarnegatFH.com)
