Mary D. Goldsmith, 62, of Toms River, passed away on Friday, March 8, 2019, at Community Medical Center, Toms River, with her husband by her side.
Mary was born in Plainfield. She was raised in Cranford before moving to Colts Neck as a teenager.

Although I will be unable to visit with Mary for the last time, know that I will be there in my thoughts and prayers. Mary was a compassionate and understanding friend, and there was fun to be had whenever I was with her. She will be greatly missed, and I will always hold her memory as dear to my heart.
