Richard A. (Richie) Braks
AGE: 68 • Pine Beach

Richard A. (Richie) Braks, 68, of Pine Beach, died on Tuesday at home in the presence of his beloved wife and close family members. He had sustained a major stroke nearly two years ago. Born in Yonkers, N.Y., on Nov. 14, 1946, to Edward and Martha Reynolds Braks, Richie was a graduate of Sacred Heart High School and studied business at Manhattan College in New York. He married his high-school sweetheart, Barbara Rohan, on June 26, 1971, and they moved to New Jersey in 1975. He owned an auto repair and service garage in Ocean Gate, and later joined the Ocean County Parks Dept. After retiring, he worked at Forge Pond Golf Course in Brick, where he was a very popular and effective starter and ranger.

Richie was an avid reader and very knowledgeable about wide-ranging subjects such as politics, American coins, Zippo lighters, carpentry and machinery, as well as antique engines and mini-bikes, both of which he was fond of building. A motorcycle enthusiast, he was an avid Harley Davidson fan, and he and his wife often rode their bikes around Ocean County and in the Hobe Sound, FL area where they spent winters in recent years. In his leisure time, he was a meticulous and creative wood worker and mechanic and lovingly restored vintage Corvettes and other special cars to pristine condition. Generous with his talents, he took pleasure in helping relatives choose the right car to buy. Richie also enjoyed building handsome sheds for gardening, carpentry and machinery supplies, garden beds for vegetables, and a playhouse for a great-niece. Richard was a long-time member of the Ocean County Mosquito Commission and had been a member of the Pine Beach Planning Board and Republican Club.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his brother, Edward (Fran) Braks of Wallace, N.C., and his sister, Elaine (Neil) Ginsberg of Mount Kisco, N.Y. Richie was loved as a brother by his wife’s siblings: Susan (John) Garvey, Sharon (Jack) McMahon, Tricia (George) Tunick, Bob (Jackie) Rohan, Judy (Henry) Steiner, Kathy (Charlie) Byrnes, Glenn (Stacy) Rohan and D’Arcy (Peter) Green. Also surviving are 17 nieces and nephews, three great-nieces and two great-nephews, as well as three godchildren.

As Richie worked to recover from the stroke, his wife, Barbara, was his prime caregiver. She was helped by caring physicians, health care workers, therapists and aides, including Dr. John Radomski, Christie McGovern, Kerry Brennan, Gila Rosen, Jackie Augustensen and Gary Thomas.

A Memorial Gathering will be held on Friday, Feb 20 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Anderson and Campbell Funeral Home, 703 Main St., Toms River. A Memorial Mass will be held on Saturday, Feb 21 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Barnabas Church, 33 Woodland Rd., Bayville.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Richie’s name to Beachwood First Aid Squad, 4 Beachwood Blvd., Beachwood, N.J., 08722, or to Our Lady of Lourdes Liver Transplant Program, 1601 Haddon Avenue, Camden, N.J. 08103.Please visit http://www.andersonandcampbell.com for more information.

Rose Marie Nigara
September 9, 1921 – November 24, 2014
Obituary

Rose M. Nigara has been actively involved in Our Lady of the Valley’s parish (located in Orange, NJ) for approximately sixty years. She is known for her warm smile and her willingness to be in God’s Service. One of her strong characteristic is her faith in God and her devotion to Mary, the Blessed Mother.

Rose was born in Newark, NJ in 1921. She was educated by the nuns of Saint/Mother Cabrini’s Order at St. Anthony’s Orphanage in North Arlington, NJ. Upon graduation from high school in 1939, she attended Manhattan College in New York where she received certification in advanced stenography.

Utilizing her stenographic skills, Rose has an extensive employment history spanning over fifty years: Administrative Secretary to the Department Chief of Western Electric, (Kearny): Columbus Hospital, (New York): the Law Firm of Cox & Walburg, (Newark). After twenty-two years working as the Executive Secretary to the Superintendent of the West Orange Public Schools, she retired in 1986.

Rose is affiliated with a host of organizations sharing her time, talents, and treasures. She has been a member of the Rosary Society for fifty-eight years and correctly serves as Secretary for the Rosary Society at Our lady of the Valley. She is also a member of the Health & Wellness Ministry; The Linus Organization, West Orange Police Athletic League, and the West Orange First Aid Squad, Inc.

Rose embraces good stewardship with vigor. She has devoted over a half of a century of service to Our Lady of the Valley. As an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, she visits the housebound and patients in nursing homes. She prepares the communion vessels before and after masses; assists with the beautification of the church. As a Rosarian, she has dedicated daily recitation of the rosary to Our Lady; leads the rosary at masses daily in addition to the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy.

As a result of Rose’s genuine interest in every one she meets, her generosity has enabled many individuals and families in need of assistance whether it’s financial or preparing a hot meal for the homeless. In addition to her numerous contributions, she finds time to knit and crochet warm blankets for children afflicted with cancer in various hospitals.

Rose takes great pride in her family. She was married to the late Anthony Nigara in 1946. From their union, she had three sons, Vincent (LuAnn), Robert (Marie), and John (Rebecca). She is the proud grandmother of eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Rose is a humble person who spreads the love of God gracefully. She is an inspiration to many parishioners; encouraging others to intensify their involvement as servants of God. A virtuous woman who sets an example by living the Catholic faith. She maintains a full schedule of community building- building a community of God.
