Margaret Virili, 95, of Barnegat, NJ surrounded by her loving family, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 7. She was born in Perth Amboy to her late parents, Louis and Lillian Callan.

Her beloved husband Albert, her precious grandson Jeffrey J. Gannon and her son-in-law Robert C. Graham predeceased her. Her three loving daughters, Margaret Graham, Patricia Gannon and her husband Neil and Elizabeth McCullum and her husband Allan survive her. She is also survived by her seven grandchildren, her eight great grandchildren, her sister Mary Ziener and her many nieces and nephews.

Margaret worked for various companies, during WWII, she was a telephone operator for NJ Bell, (also known as “Ma Bell”) and she worked on the production line for Bayer Aspirin Company. Her final job before she retired was as an Administrative Assistant in the Statement Department for NJ National Bank.

It was when she worked as a customer service representative for Sears and Roebuck, that she met the love of her life, Albert. Together they raised three wonderful daughters in various areas of Mercer County. She and Albert were married for 53 years before his passing in 2000.

Margaret received her “Bachelor's Degree” in “MOM”, which was her most important title and best-loved job. Her most cherished memories and happiest times came from being a mom and a nanny. All who knew her affectionately called her “Nanny”. Her family and friends meant everything to her. She will be missed greatly.
