Nancy DeForest Newman, 64 of Sea Girt was a loving wife, mother, sister, cousin and friend to many. She departed this world unexpectedly of a brain aneurysm on Saturday March 23, 2019. Nancy grew up in Staten Island attending St Clare’s Grammar School and St Joseph by the Sea High School. After graduating Marist College, she worked at CBS News, which led to a successful career at Epic/CBS Records as A&R Manager. Nancy retired in 1987, when she and her husband Charlie Newman moved to their dream house in Sea Girt, NJ. Her first job here was working at Mueller’s Florist. They were active members of the Manasquan Elks Lodge # 2534. Charlie and Nancy loved traveling and in recent years they enjoyed discovering her O’Connor and Charlie’s Newman roots by exploring Ireland. They also found a new group of friends by spending some of the winter months in Jupiter, FL. Nancy had a personality that would light up a room and bring laughter and joy to any situation. She found joy in her family and her many cousins. She will be missed by all. Charlie’s cousins sent him this quote “She has not gone from us, she has gone before us”. Fly high our Angel Nancy.
