Elizabeth A. Zarrillo, 85 of Berkeley Township, passed peacefully on February 16, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Newark she resided in Bloomfield and Brick prior to moving to Berkeley Township in 2007. In addition to raising her children, Elizabeth worked as a Community Relations Representative at The Eye Care Center of New Jersey in Bloomfield, as a receptionist at Seashore Surgical Institute in Brick and as a front desk receptionist for DelNegro and Senft Eye Associates in Neptune until her retirement in 2021. Elizabeth’s heart was full when her house was full. She loved cooking and hosting parties and holidays in her home. Her family and friends never turned down an offer to eat her famous meatballs, stuffed artichokes, Thanksgiving stuffing and rice pudding. She graciously shared her love of cooking with her family so they can carry on her wish to continue celebrating together in her memory.
