Obituary for Jo-Ellen Higgins (Hill)

Jo-Ellen Higgins, 67 of Lakewood suddenly passed away at her home on Thursday August 23, 2018. Jo-Ellen was born and raised in Kearny, NJ where she was a graduate of Kearny High School. She then graduated with her bachelor’s degree from Douglas College. Upon her graduation, Jo-Ellen followed her dream of teaching and began her 40-year teaching career as a Mathematics teacher at Manasquan High School for 32 years, followed by St. Rose High School for 8 years. She remembered each and every student and hoped she impacted their lives in some unique way.

Anyone that knew Jo-Ellen knows she was passionate about 3 things; her children, grandchildren, Connor and Paige, and her cats. She devoted all her love and time to making sure they always came first. An avid Mets, Jets and Syracuse fan, you could always expect to find one of these teams on her TV.

Jo-Ellen was predeceased by her parents former Mayor of Kearny, Henry Hill and Ruth (nee Harry) Hill. She is survived by her loving children Geoffrey and Patricia Higgins of Sea Girt and Lindsay and Anthony Balint of Brick. Jo-Ellen is also survived by her beloved brother Henry and Sheila Hill of Point Pleasant Boro; two beloved sisters Susan and Steve Hill-Kleespie of Centennial, CO and Beverly Beard of Manasquan; and two cherished grandchildren Connor and Paige.

Family and friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life visitation on Sunday August 26, 2018 from 2-5 pm at Orender Family Home for Funerals 2643 Old Bridge Road Manasquan, NJ.
