Regina (Jean) Lorenz was born on May 14th, 1924, in the Vauxhall area of Union, New Jersey, the daughter of Charles and Pauline Kirsteuer. She graduated from Union High School in 1941 and then went on to attend the Traphagen School of Fashion in New York. Her first job was during World War II with Prudential Insurance. Following the war, Jean met and married Thaddeus (Ted) Lorenz, moved to Newark, New Jersey and started their family. In 1961 the family moved to Cranford, where they raised their four children. Jean worked at J.B. Williams/Nabisco Corp. from 1969 until her retirement in 1987. Jean and Ted were married for 47 years prior to Ted’s passing in 1996. After Ted's passing, Jean moved to Point Pleasant, which would be her home until her death. During the last few years, Jean moved-in with her eldest daughter, Donna Shadlun of Brielle, where she was given lots of love and the best care. Jean passed away of natural causes, peacefully, in her sleep, on February 2, 2021, three months short of 97th birthday.

Regina was an exceptional cook, gardener and seamstress. Her barbecues and holiday gatherings were hotly anticipated and attended by crowds of family and friends of all ages. She was an amazing cook and homemaker, filling the lives of her family with love, care and inspiration. Regina's artistic skills and talents were evidenced in her beautiful gardens and assorted crafts. In retirement she began crocheting and eventually created thousands of beanies, hats and lap blankets that were distributed to local hospitals for premature babies and adult patients, senior citizen organizations and missionaries in Africa. She was twice featured in full page articles about her crocheting skills, dedication to helping others and her caring heart. She was a devoted Yankees fan, a carry-over from her softball days in high school. She stayed physically active throughout her life, which created significant concern for her children. Eventually, her children convinced her to give up cleaning her own gutters, cutting her lawn and cutting down trees with her chainsaw when she was approaching 90 years old. Jean was still involved and enjoyed attending St Martha's Bee Hive group.

Regina is survived by her four children: Donna (Lorenz) Shadlun of Brielle, NJ; Linda (Lorenz) and Rick Hoolko of La Jolla, CA; Stephen and Carol Lorenz of Stevensville, MD; and John and Karen Lorenz of Fair Haven, NJ. Regina was blessed with 10 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren that she greatly loved. Her grandchildren: Sally (Beltran) and Evan Shadlun; Jessica (Sullivan), Dana and Jonathan Hoolko; Kristy (Good), Brittany (Hoefling), and Cody Lorenz; Christopher and Thaddeus Lorenz II. Her great grandchildren: Nico, Vincent, Wyatt, Waylon, Zander, Ellie, Lily and Margot. Regina was preceded in death by her husband Thaddeus (Teddy) Lorenz and her great grandson Vincent. "Grandma Jean" was an incredible wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. She was always determined, strong, and dedicated to her family. She set a great example for so many ways for her family, instilling key lessons of strength and character upon her family. Her motto was, “Here’s to it, so let’s do it, because if we don’t do it, we may not have the chance to do it again”. She will be missed and loved forever by her family and friends, but her example and memory will always remain within us and also in our hearts.

Oh Donna, I am so truly sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. Your tribute to her was so very beautiful. She was always so active and never let anything ever slow her down. I definitely had some fun times working with her at JB Williams. She always kept everyone laughing. Sending my deepest condolences to you and your entire family. May she fly with the angels, and dance with your Dad once again. ❤
