Longtime MARSD School Board Employee Dies

Beverly Korthaus, age 66, died on 7 June at her home in Cliffwood Beach, according to her Legacy obituary. She had been employed for over twenty years with the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District as an administrative assistant with the Board of Education.

Beverly was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts about 1945 to Ralph M and Katherine Woolwine. California state marriage records (1960-1985) show that Ralph and Katherine were 63 years old when they got married in San Diego on 26 November 1983. She leaves a husband, Glenn L Korthaus, and several children.

Beverly's father Ralph M Born was born 8 September 1920 in Massachusetts and died in Tucson, Arizona 20 April 1995. He was a chemical engineer for General Electric, according to the 1946 and 1948 editions of Manning's Pittsfield City Directory. Those directories showed the family living at 46 E Housatonic Street in 1946 and 6 Acre Road in 1948. Below is a map showing the East Housatonic address.
