Gail Ann Strunz

Gail Ann Strunz, age 74 of Lopatcong Twp., NJ, died at home on Friday, January 11, 2019.

Born in Jersey City, NJ, she was the daughter of the late Albert and Muriel Elste. 

Gail resided in Spotswood, NJ for 28 years before moving to North Brunswick for a time and then Phillipsburg 10 years ago.

She graduated from Snyder High School in Jersey City in 1962 and married the love of her life in 1964.  She had many part time jobs one being an Avon Sales Represenative.

Gail was artistic and loved arranging flowers, painting and gardening.  She was a devoted mother and grandmother and enjoyed nothing more than spending time with her family and cherished pets throughout the years.  When her daughters were young, she served as a girl scout leader and as her grandsons were growing up, she took them to all their ice-skating lessons.  She loved going down the shore and enjoyed many a summer day on the beaches of Avon and Ocean Grove.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 54 years, Ralph; her daughters, Sheri and Debbie Strunz; her two grandsons, Samuel and Christopher Strunz; her sister, Elaine Bolger and many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.
