Marilyn Elizabeth Beyel
Marilyn Elizabeth Beyel, age 71 of Lake Shawnee, NJ died peacefully at her home on October 18, 2021 following a brief battle with cancer. Born in the Bronx, NY, daughter of the late Joseph V. and Rose M. (nee Covello) Foti, Marilyn was a loving and devoted wife, mother and aunt. She was an angel who cared for people more than she cared for herself. She was always there to lend a hand.
Marilyn spent a number of years in secretarial and administrative management positions before becoming a full-time mom to her two sons. In later years, she found her true calling as a special education aide for kindergarten through second grade children in the Jefferson Twp., NJ Schools District. It was a role she loved and enjoyed for seventeen years before her retirement in 2020.
Mrs. Beyel was predeceased by her nephew/godson Michael Steccato. She is survived by her loving husband of forty years, Jim Beyel, her sons Kevin and Christopher Beyel as well as her sister Valerie Steccato.
