Obituary for Marguerite Avella

Marguerite Avella passed away peacefully on April 25, 2019 at Wedgwood Gardens Rehab Center in Freehold, NJ after a long illness with Multiple Sclerosis. She was born in Trenton, NJ on August 23, 1946. Her Father was Colonel (Ret) Joseph T. Avella and Mother was Adelaide Avella of Pennington, NJ. Marguerite graduated from Ewing High School in Ewing, NJ in 1963 and then from East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania. She taught school in the Princeton School District for about 4 years.
Marguerite was a free spirit and enjoyed life in her younger years. She left teaching after a few years and moved to Denver, Colorado and began working in the advertising industry. Marguerite later lived in Dallas, Texas and then Hamilton, NJ.
Marguerite enjoyed snow skiing and ballroom dancing and taught ballroom dancing part time. She loved animals and lived with her favorite cat Polly while in Dallas.
While in Project Freedom in Hamilton, Marguerite joined the Jehovah’s Witnesses. It was her Brothers and Sisters in Hamilton that realized that Marguerite needed full time care and arranged for her to move to the John L. Montgomery Care Center in Freehold. Marguerite was a resident of care centers in Freehold for over 10 years and always looked forward to the Sunday visits with her Sisters.
Marguerite is survived by her brother Joe and his wife Carole of Hudson, Ohio and her brother William of Ewing, NJ.
Services will be at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses at 141 Court Street, Freehold, NJ on May 8 at 4:00pm. Interment will be private.
