In Recognition

Belmar morns loss of Jane Magovern – local benefactress, Saint Rose Grammar School teacher and wife of Belmar Council President Brian Magovern.


I only knew her casually, but I know that she gave much of her life to the many good things that happen in Belmar and its surrounds.  I also salute and thank her for her forty year career as an art teacher at Saint Rose Grammar School.  My girls are among the many hundreds of students whose lives she has been a part of.  I’m quite sure we still have many beautiful things here that were created in her classroom.

The entire town will miss her.

Please read her very nicely written Legacy page here.
