Obituary of Gilda Booth

Gilda Booth, age 86, died at home on Monday, June 1, 2020 after a valiant battle with  cancer. Born in Scranton, PA she was the daughter of the late James and Jennie DiCindio.

Gilda had lived in Whitehouse Station before moving to Flemington almost two years ago. Before her retirement she worked as an Administrative Assistant to the State Appellate Court Division in Morristown, NJ. She was a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Three Bridges. 


Gilda’s love for family took precedence over everything else in her life and whenever possible she would assemble as many family members as possible and gather around the table with amazing home cooked Italian meals. She also enjoyed reading, her book club, politics, and especially her long telephone conversations with family and friends. Gilda often became friends with people she would encounter from visits to the salon, shopping or dining out. She touched the lives of everyone she met from dry cleaners, florists to folks she would see at the local deli.


Due to gathering restrictions Gilda's chidren and grandchildren will be holding a private service to be followed by intermittent at Washington Crossing National Cemetery.  If you wish to be notified when a memorial mass has been scheduled, please email the funeral home at to be placed on a list.
