Barbara Rita Justin, age 86 of Franklin Lakes, New Jersey passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 26th, 2020 surrounded by her loving children. Born September 7th, 1934 in the Bronx, NY she was the daughter of the late George and Mae Fisch.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband Eugene Justin with whom she shared four children. A daughter; Jennifer Barry (Peter) Sons; Jonathan Justin (Karen), Guy Justin (Missy) and Craig Justin; her adored grandchildren Erin and Justin Barry. Also surviving include her sister Paulette (Cookie) Gray and brother-in-law Anthony Gray. She also leaves behind nieces; Dr. Cindy Grubin and Stephanie Gray; a nephew Cameron Gray; a cousin Elssia Boleen; a second cousin Jeff Boleen; dear friends and her cat "Kemper" who kept close watch over her this past year.
She had many titles throughout her life but, first and foremost she was a great mother with an unwavering love for her children, grandchildren, and her family. Whether being Down the Shore or on a pair of water skies on Greenwood Lake, or just swimming in the pool with family she loved being by the water. Her love for exercise and yoga brought her many treasured friendships. She was an avid reader and enjoyed browsing her local library for her next read. A talented artist, creating beautiful pottery, drawing, and painting, always creating works of art we will cherish for years.
We will miss her wisdom and strength that has guided us well throughout our lives and will also miss the sight of her standing in her driveway lovingly waving goodbye to us.
A celebration of her life will be held Spring 2021 when we can all gather outside safely.
