A Fond Farewell

News Staff's picture

This past week, Livingston lost a valuable community member who served as a role model for generations of township residents. Grace Russo died Monday, May 28, at the age of 87. She was known to many in town for her warm, loving attitude toward all. One friend of hers told us, “Even if you had just met her, each time she saw you, she would greet you like an old friend.” She was genuinely interested in her community and the people in it.

The many people who attended Grace’s funeral at St. Philomena Parish on Monday showed clearly how beloved Grace was here in Livingston. Driving along South Livingston Avenue just prior to the service was challenging. Drivers waited patiently to turn their cars into the church driveway, while many Town Hall employees could be seen walking to the church.
