ELIZABETH M. PREUSSE
Elizabeth M. Preusse nee Scholtz, 100, of Ocean, passed away Sunday, Nov. 1, 2009, at home, with her family. She was born in Seletin, Austria and immigrated to the United States through Ellis Island when she was just 12 years old. Elizabeth worked for many years as the head bookkeeper for Kresge in Newark and Muir's in East Orange. In her younger years, Elizabeth avidly collected stamps and loved cooking. She said that her firm belief in vitamins helped her to become a centenarian. She always loved the beach and the boardwalk. Elizabeth had a genuine love for life, her dogs, her family and especially her great-grandchildren. In her later years, Elizabeth was involved with the Senior Clubs in Maplewood and Ocean Township, and was also a communicant of St. Anselm in Wayside.
She was predeceased by her loving husband, Richard Preusse. She is survived by her daughter, Joyce Sueta of Ocean; her grandchildren, Thomas Sueta and his wife Joanne of Neptune, Elizabeth Blau and her husband Fritz of Stamford, Conn., and Christine Underwood and her husband Joseph of Neptune; her great-grandchildren, Ashley, Billy, Haley, Arden and Mallory; her brother, Robert Scholtz of Diamond Bar, Calif.; and her sister, Hilda Schmidt of Mountainside.
Friends and family are invited to visit from 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 5 until the funeral service at noon at the Ely Funeral Home, Neptune. The committal will follow in Hollywood Memorial Park, Union.
