Obituary of Eileen A. Roerig

Eileen A. (Lent) Roerig passed peacefully at her home in Pittstown, on December 4, 2022. She was the wife of the late, Ludwig G. Roerig who passed on June 7, 2013

Eileen was born on June 29, 1935, in Somerville NJ, to Clara Mae and George W. Lent. She met Ludwig when she was 14 and they were married 6 years later in 1955

Eileen is survived by her Brother George Lent, 4 children Danny N Roerig of Washington, Dr Phillip A Roerig of Glen Gardner, Adam T Roerig of Leesport Pa, and Lisa O Lindsay of Freeport pa, 17 Grand Children and 7 Great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her sisters Harriet, Carolyn, and Barbara, her son Louis Roerig, and grandson Samuel

Eileen always enjoyed the Farm life, from milking cows, to making thousands of bales of hay to growing the sweetest sweetcorn in NJ. She drove a school bus for Flemings Garage for many years. She was a youth group leader for Grandin Church for several years. She was an avid seamstress making the best Halloween costumes, repairing clothes, making pants and dresses or literally anything that could be sewn.

Eileen's real passion was being a Great mom to her family. It didn't matter when or where, she was always ready to help someone in need, give support, lend a hand, and cook for a crowd

A memorial service will be held at the Bethlehem Presbyterian church in Grandin NJ, at a later date. Arrangements are under the care of Martin Funeral Home, Clinton, NJ. To send condolences to the family please visit www.martinfh.com
