Elizabeth Ann “Beth” Dudash, 47, of Union, NJ passed peacefully at home on Thursday April 28, 2022. Born with autism, she lived her entire life in Union, attending schools and day programs for the developmentally disabled. The pleasures in her life were simple- listening to her favorite music, sitting in her rocking chair on the porch, watching Brady Bunch and Gilligan’s Island reruns on YouTube, taking rides in Dad’s car, going for outings with her caregivers, visiting her brother’s house in Asbury Park, and indulging in her sweet tooth, always asking for chocolate or a piece of cake.
Beth is pre-deceased by her mother Susan (nee Soelbrandt) and survived by her father Joseph, her brother Joseph, Jr., and her devoted caregivers Juana Medina and Carolina Nunez. Visiting hours will be held Wednesday, May 4, 6-9PM at the Bradley, Haeberle & Barth Funeral Home, 1100 Pine Ave., Union, followed by a prayer service in the same location on Thursday, May 5 at 10:30AM. In lieu of flowers, donations in Beth’s name may be made to Autism Speaks Inc., 1060 State Rd.#1446, Princeton, NJ 08540.
