Jennifer Joyce Green, age 40, of Sayreville , peacefully passed away on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at her mother’s home in Newport, VT. Born in New Brunswick, Jennifer was a lifelong resident of Sayreville. She was employed with Gavion/Revision Military Supply as well as a cashier with Price Chopper, both in Newport, VT. She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Jennifer is predeceased by her dear daughter Lexus Marie Green, her maternal grandparents Martin and Joyce Wetstein, and her paternal grandparents Joyce and Edward Green. Surviving is her husband Richard Brown of Sayreville; her loving children Justice and Liliana Brown of Sayreville; her father Douglas Green and his partner Susan of South Amboy; her mother Jean Green (Wetstein) and partner Robert of Newport, VT; her siblings Staci Green of Neptune City, Matthew Green of OR, and Michael Green; her nieces Deanna, Jasmine, and Madeleine and her nephew Joseph.
Jennifer was truly one of a kind.
She considered herself a “beautiful disaster,” flawed and all. Jennifer had a heart of gold and wore it on her sleeve. Most times it came of of her mouth. She was loud and powerful, stubborn and ruthless, but she also had an incredible caring heart. She’d donate her last dollar to the March of dimes or give her last cigarette to a homeless man, or take care of her sister in law and family after a tragedy. Jennifer helped take care of her Nana Up until her last days and was a great “dad” to her nieces. No matter what, no matter how difficult and no matter What lengths she had to go to, Jennifer showed up for her family. Jennifer left behind two amazing, beautiful children who she loved dearly. After some unpredictable health issues, Jennifer was separated from her children. It was her goal to be reunited with her family.
Jennifer was a difficult person, but she was who she was and she never planned on changing anytime soon. The people who stayed close to her loved her for who she was. We are incredibly saddened by her loss.
Calling hours are scheduled on Friday from 4pm to 8pm at the Carmen F. Spezzi Funeral Home, 15 Cherry Lane, Parlin with services scheduled for 5pm.
