Desiree is survived by her son, Matthew; Daughter, Rochelle; grandchildren, and her siblings Patty, Carol, Joey, Christa and John. She enjoyed visiting Historic Smithville, evening walks on Brigantine Beach, viewing Christmas Lights, traveling to visit her children and enjoying laughs with family and friends. She was known for her distinct laugh, loving spirit and kindness to everyone she met. She was a devout Catholic who frequently prayed, read scripture and visited the church. She generously made donations during her lifetime to various charities and believed in helping the less fortunate. Seldom was a day that she wasn’t in close contact with her children or grandchildren, where she was always a shoulder to cry on and offer thoughtful, caring and passionate advice.
A gathering will be on Thursday, 10/03/2019 at 10AM with Mass at 11AM at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, 591 New Jersey Ave., Absecon, with reception to follow.
