February 26, 1931 – May 18, 2020
Margaret "Philomena" Spratt, 89 of Toms River, passed away peacefully on Monday, May 18, 2020. Philomena was born in Moneygold, County Sligo, Ireland on February 26, 1931. She immigrated to the United States in 1958. Philomena resided in the Boroughs of Manhattan, Bronx and Queens for many years before returning to Ireland in 1992. In 2010, Philomena returned to the United States to be with her family. She worked hard not only as a homemaker for her large family but as an exceptional caregiver to many of her clients that she served. She will be sorely missed by all those that knew and loved her. We will miss her strength. Philomena was predeceased by daughters Rosemarie Spratt, Marie Vorlicek and sons, Charles and Phillip Spratt. She is survived by her four children; her daughter Lesa Imperato of Wilmington, NC, her sons, Sean Spratt and his wife Noreen of Queens NY, Michael Spratt and his wife Maureen of Brooklyn, NY, Paul Spratt and his wife Irene of Trent Woods, NC, her 11 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Sadly due to the pandemic services and cremation will be private. Philomena's ashes will be taken back to her motherland of Ireland by her family.

Mrs. Spratt, I only met you and your husband briefly but I've had the pleasure of knowing your children.
I will say you have left this world a better place thanks to your hard work and good parenting.
May God bless and keep you!

Very happy memories of Philomena arriving up to Cliffoney, looking like Johnie forty coats on many a winter Sunday for dinner.
She loved to see the open fire and during the evening she would peel off one top/jumper at a time. We'd ask her how many lairs had
she on. We would have a great laugh as she proceeded to show us
maybe six lairs of clothes.
