Elizabeth Gulino Obituary

Beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, and grandmother, Elizabeth “Betty” Gulino (née Fantaccione), 80, of Westfield, New Jersey formerly of Ridgewood, New Jersey passed away on Thursday, January,11, 2024.

On July 11, 1943, Betty was born in Hoboken, New Jersey to the late Albert and Lucille Fantaccione. She was raised in a loving family with her two sisters Marion and Diane.

She married her high school sweetheart, Martin Gulino, on June 25, 1966. Together they raised their three daughters Michelle, Kathleen, and Debra in Ridgewood, New Jersey where they created many happy memories and lifelong friendships. Betty and Marty spent many summers at their home in Spring Lake, New Jersey where she continued to gather the family and create new friendships.

Betty was a lifelong learner who pursued her dreams of achieving a college education to become a teacher at Paramus Catholic High School. This gave her the opportunity to encourage her students to reach their full potential. Betty’s desire to give back to the community was reflected in the many organizations and charities that she supported.

Betty’s strong faith was evident in the way she lived her life and celebrated the birth of each of her six grandchildren: Lauren, Timothy and Kaitlyn Oligino, Jake Baka, Lucy and Jack Brophy. Her family was the center of her world, and she took such pride in making each occasion special. Her smile would brighten a room and her laugh was infectious. She was the heart of the family.
