Surrounded by family and friends, Barbara Wainwright (69), of Lakewood NJ, passed away on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 after a brave battle with ALS. Barbara was born in Corona Queens, NY, and raised in Wellsville, NY before moving to Neptune, NJ in middle school. Some of Barbara's most cherished childhood memories involved watching her father play professional baseball for the Cardinals minor league team.
After graduating from Neptune High School, Barbara went to work for New Jersey Bell. She later married and raised her three children, Bobby, Scott, and Jessie in Brielle, NJ. She loved living at the Jersey Shore, and spending time at her beloved cabin in the Adirondack mountains. While still a full time mother and grandmother, Barbara pursued her passion for helping others by attending nursing school. After graduating from Brookdale Community College Nursing School as an RN, Barbara was employed by Silverton Pediatrics for almost 15 years. She retired in 2014 as head nurse with a lifetime of memories with her work "family". Barbara enjoyed gardening, photography, watching the Yankees, and attending every sporting event for her children and grandchildren. She was a devoted mother and friend who was known for her incomparable baked goods and willingness to host any large family event. Barbara was one of the finest souls, beautiful inside and out. She was the kindest woman and made it her mission to spread love and light in the world. She will be remembered in the hearts of all the lives she has touched.

Barbara was predeceased by her parents Eli and Josephine Russo and brother Ronald Eli Russo. She is survived by her loving children Robert (Courtney) Wainwright of Locust, NJ; Scott (Rhonda) Wainwright of Wall and Jessica (John) Cifelli of Toms River; a beloved brother Joseph (MaryEllen) Russo of Brick, NJ. Barbara is also survived by her seven cherished grandchildren Gunnar, Kyle, Cole, Carter, Sophia, Leo and Adam as well as her sister Anna Maria Russo and sister-in-law Judy Russo both of Lakewood, NJ. As well as her nieces Tina, Carrie, Emily and Natalie and many lifelong friends.

Our family sends our sincere condolences on the loss of your Mother. I just recently learned of her death and I wanted to reach out to you to let you know how kind she was to my children, who were patients of hers at Dr. Schlachter's/Silverton Pediatrics. She was always very patient with all of the children and she was a pleasure to chat with. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this most difficult time.

Barbara - For every brownie you made from scratch, for every athletic event you cheered on, for every family dinner you prepared, for every birthday party you created, for every shopping cart you filled, for every trip to a college campus, for all the goodwill you spread through your famous muffins and thoughtful cards, and for every emotional sacrifice you made so effortlessly… the trueness of your life will be seen in the three amazing children you raised-each one beautiful and talented in their own right and who never ever let you down. Your legacy will live on in the richness of their lives and the goodness of their very beings. God bless you always.
