Elizabeth “Betty” R. (Simpkins) Moffa, 90, of Mays Landing N.J., passed away peacefully on January 22, 2024, 3 hours after the birth of her great-great-grandson Lucas K. Martin.

Elizabeth was predeceased in 2013 by her loving husband of 62 years Ernest E. Moffa Sr.; her only son Ernest E. Moffa Jr. on January 12, 2023; son-in-law Joseph Ormsby on February 7, 2023; one great-grandson Dennis Julian Ormsby, and her Mother Roseanna (Simpkins) Haines.

Elizabeth was born on January 29, 1933, and resided in Pleasantville, Berlin, Alloway, Franklin WV, and spent the last 7 years residing with her daughter Debra Ormsby in Mays Landing, N.J.

In her younger years, Elizabeth worked in furniture sales, and then was an Administrative Assistant for a family Steel Fabrication business for over 40 years. After moving to WV, she was a mail carrier in Franklin WV, before retiring at the age of 82.

Elizabeth loved the ocean and enjoyed spending time relaxing on the beach. During the Summer, she always took her grandchildren Dawn and Dennis for weekly beach trips to Ocean City, and she also enjoyed taking vacations with her husband Ernest, in Cape May.

She loved spending time with her family, and always adored all of her grandchildren. Elizabeth loved to cook for the holidays, and enjoyed gardening, shopping, the boardwalk, and the casino. Elizabeth loved the mountains in WV, and always enjoyed when it snowed. She loved all animals, birds, and scratch-off lottery tickets, which she always managed to somehow win!

Elizabeth is survived by her loving daughter Debra R. Ormsby, who provided excellent care to her over the last 7 years. Her granddaughter Dawn Hagerman; grandson Dennis Ormsby and wife Heather; great-grandchildren Destiny Hagerman and Jordyn Martin, Ashley Williams, and Joey Ormsby; great-great-grandchildren Gavin N. Bloomer and Lucas K. Martin.
