Funeral Date: Sunday, 14 December 2014
Newman, Ruth, 90, passed away on Thursday, December 11, 2013. She was a friend to everyone. She lived in North Bergen for over 55 years with her husband, Stanley. While Ruth was very active in town politics, her husband Stanley was a little league coach for 22 years dedicating most of his life to serving North Bergen’s little league youth. After having a winning team for over 10 years, Ruth could not have been a prouder wife after a field was named after her husband, The Stanley Newman Memorial Field in 1983. That day was called Stanley Newman Day and team members spanning from ages 7 to 37 all came to honor Stanley. Stanley and Ruth were so proud and surprised when they saw how many hundreds of people came out to celebrate this amazing day with them and their family! For over 30 years, Ruth worked with her son, Jack, in his Hackensack business. Ruth was a great saleswoman who always enjoyed chatting with her customers and made them feel welcome with her home-made pound cakes, mandel bread, rugelach and coffee. She was loved by all. Ruth worked well into her 80’s and loved every minute of her job! Always energetic and full of life, Ruth was a compassionate woman who enjoyed giving. She was a beautiful hostess who had many large gatherings at her home. She truly had an enormous heart and was a roll model to her children! Ruth was a loving wife to her deceased husband Stanley, and a loving mother to their three children and their spouses: Daughters, Diane & Fred Stern and Jeannie and Joe Capadonna and son, Jack Newman and his wife Mary. She loved her grandchildren very much: Chad, Ashlie & Jim, Lacie & Joe and David, Jay and Michael Newman as well as her great grandchildren, Ava & Julia Goff and Chloe & Cydney Callari and niece Sharon and Brian and Jarret. She will be greatly missed by everyone in her family and all who knew her. She was one special woman!
