Nancy Ellen Kolesar, age 72, of Manahawkin, New Jersey passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Wednesday, November 20th at her son’s house in Port Saint Lucie, Florida. Nancy was born on May 24, 1947 in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Nancy is predeceased by the love of her life and husband, Edward, who passed away two months ago after 53 years of marriage. She is survived by her loving children, Kimberly (Edward) Cittadino of Manahawkin, NJ, Michael (Jeanine) Kolesar of Port Saint Lucie, Florida and Edward (Tiffany) Kolesar of Pottstown, PA, and her precious grandchildren Ryan and Michael Shackleton and Jared Cittadino and Brynn (Matt) Puorro.

Nancy worked for 25 years for the State of New Jersey, as a secretary for the Dietary Department and part-time as a hairdresser. Throughout life Nancy enjoyed being with family and friends. Occasionally drinking wine, shopping for knickknacks, and enjoying going out to dinner. She loved all her pets which accompanied her throughout life and provided her much enjoyment . She loved vacationing in Florida. Something the family has been doing for the last 35 years. Recently, she was able to enjoy time in Port Saint Lucie, FL with Michael and family.

My condolences to her family, it’s so hard to believe she is gone, I think of you everyday, I will never forget all the talks we had and laughs especially all the fun we had at the flea market and the good times we had at bunco, it will never be the same without you. I remember Nancy was the first one to come see me after my heart attack with a beautiful flower arrangement. I am so happy I met you and will always remember all the fun we had., but I know you are where you wanted to be with your loving husband Ed, RIP Nancy, I love you. and will miss you very much.🙏♥️
