Obituary for Elizabeth "Jane" Welsh Befumo

Elizabeth Welsh Befumo, “Jane,” as she was lovingly called, was born on March 2, 1948 in Elizabeth New Jersey. She was the daughter of the late John Ferdinand Welsh, Sr. and Elizabeth Natalie (nee) Williams. She graduated from Teaneck High School and Bergen Pines School of Practical Nursing. She practiced nursing for ten years before joining the United States Postal Service where she worked for 38 years.

Jane married her husband, John Paul Befumo in 1980. For years, she lovingly cared for him through his terminal illness until his passing in 1988.

Family and friends will remember Jane for her kind and compassionate heart not only for others but also for all animals. Throughout her life she rescued numerous cats and other creatures. Jane was also blessed with the most beautiful singing voice. Her ability to comfort others along with her devout faith in Our Lord will be remembered by all whose lives she touched.

On Sunday, June 3, 2018, Elizabeth “Jane” Welsh Befumo passed away at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick at the age of seventy.

Jane was predeceased by her beloved husband, John Paul Befumo; brother, John F. Welsh, Jr.; and nephew, John F. Welsh, III.

Left to grieve her profound loss are her sister, Sharon Buzzard; two nieces: Melissa Bethony (Joseph) and Kathleen Dufresne (Kevin); grand-nieces: Natalie Bethony and Grace Dufresne; grand-nephews: Mason Bethony and John Dufresne; step-son, John Befumo, Jr. (Stephanie); step-daughter, Kelly Greene; step-grandchildren: Joseph, Andelyn, Savannah, Sophia and Johnny; cousins: Brenda Lewis and Kim Daniels; devoted friend, Rosilyn Watson; and a host of many dear friends who were like family to her.
