HELEN LUDOWIG, 72, of Jackson Twp., NJ, passed away on Tuesday, February 11, 2020, at home. She was born in New Brunswick, NJ and has resided in Jackson Twp. for the past 13 years.
Helen was employed as an office manager for the St. Barnabas Health Service, Neptune, NJ, prior to her retirement. In 2016 she founded “Bread From Heaven Café” which fed many needy people in the community.
She was a United States Veteran proudly serving in the Air Force.
Helen was a communicant of St. Aloysius Roman Catholic Church, Jackson Twp., NJ.
She wanted everyone to know that it was her outmost wish that BFH organization shall continue as my legacy, leaving behind me to do what I originally intended to do, feeding hungry and needy, providing food to all who need it. Make sure that we have a facility or stock room warehouse somewhere to continue doing what I have started.
