Elizabeth Jane YoumansJuly 9, 1960 ~ May 15, 2017 (age 56)
Elizabeth ”Bj” Youmans, (Morgan), 56, passed away after a long, courageous battle against cancer. A lifelong resident of Ridgewood, NJ, her home was always open to everyone. No one embraced life the way Bj did. Whether it was coaching a team, watching her kids play sports, lounging in her pool, boating on the lake or putting her toes in the Wildwood sand, Bj lived every moment to the fullest.
Bj leaves behind her beloved husband Thomas of 29 years; and her children, Crystal, Kim and Tom. She was one of eight siblings and leaves behind countless aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. Bj was meant to be a mother. It was truly her calling in life. She loved her children with every breath of her body and then had enough love left for countless others. She was known as Momma Bej.
