Lorraine Manthey
October 8, 2017

Lorraine C. Manthey, 78 of Manasquan, NJ and Vero Beach, FL passed away Sunday, October 8, 2017 at her home surrounded by her loving family. Born in Newark, Lorraine lived in Kearny before moving to the Jersey Shore in 1975, settling in Spring Lake where she raised her family. She retired after working many years as the Secretary to the Principal of Spring Lake Heights Elementary School. Lorraine had an additional career as a Realtor with Ocean Pointe Realtors.

Lorraine was a devout Catholic and a Communicant of St. Marks Church, Sea Girt. She had a great sense of humor and a memorable laugh. Lorraine had many wonderful friends whom she loved dearly. She also loved to bike ride and "look at houses".

Lorraine was predeceased by her husband Richard F. Manthey in July, 2017 and her son William R. Manthey in 2004. Surviving are her beloved children; Chris P. Manthey and his wife Tammi of Montclair, Alisa M. Stone and her husband Tom of Navesink, Leanne E. Sebastianelli and her husband Joe of Vero Beach, FL and Manasquan. She also leaves her 4 grandchildren; Matthew, Lukas, Jacob and Julia, her two brothers, Paul Davis and wife Edith of College Park, MD and William Davis of Ponte Vedra, FL; and her two cherished nieces, Carrie Murphy and her daughter Madeleine of University Park, MD and Mary Claire Davis of Baltimore, MD; and her dog Lucie

Visitation will be Wednesday, from 4-8 PM at the O'Brien Funeral Home, 2028 Hwy 35 at New Bedford Rd., Wall. A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 9:30am at St. Mark's Church, 215 Crescent Parkway, Sea Girt, NJ 08750 followed by burial in St. Catharine Cemetery, Wall. In light of Lorraine's lesser-known diagnosis of Gall Bladder Cancer (It does exist!), in lieu of flowers the family requests donations to Mary's Place By the Sea, PO Box 86, Ocean Grove NJ 07756 or visit website: It is a guest home which provides vibrant women like Lorraine much needed respite and support to face the ill-effects of a cancer diagnosis.
