Middlesex, NJ – Barbara Katz, 64, entered eternal life on Sunday, September 17, 2023 at Robert Wood Johnson (Somerset) Hospital, where she had been surrounded by family and friends in her remaining days. Born in Brooklyn to the late Edward Katz and Margaret (Mackie) Katz, she lived in Middlesex most of her life.
Upon graduating from Middlesex High School in 1977, Barbara began her career as an insurance agent working for her father at Ed Katz Agency. After Edward’s passing, she closed the agency and provided over 40 years of service to Bollinger Insurance, formerly J. G. Mullford, and most recently A. J. Gallagher.
Barbara enjoyed life and was a great inspiration to all who had known her. She loved crafts, crocheting, shopping, garage sales, flea markets, and the adventurous road trips she made with her two best friends. Most of all, she loved being with her family and getting everyone together. There is nothing she wouldn’t have done for those she loved, and she will be greatly missed.
Besides her parents, she is pre-deceased by her nephew, Jeffrey Katz.
Barbara is survived by her brothers Bob Katz and his wife Jeanne of Cocoa Beach, Florida, Alan Katz and his wife Marti of Haymarket, Virginia, Ronald Katz of Middlesex, NJ, her sister-in-law Silke Katz of Freehold, NJ, 10 adoring nieces and nephews, and 18 grandnieces and nephews.
Per Barbara’s request, a memorial service will be held in private. Those wishing to honor Barbara’s memory can write a check “In Memory of Barbara Katz” to Deborah Pediatric Cardiology, 212 Trenton Road, Suite 115, Browns Mills, NJ 08015.
