The Honorable
Marie L. Garibaldi
Marie was a remarkable person, well-known for her
groundbreaking accomplishments in the legal field. She was
the first woman Supreme Court justice of the State of New
Jersey and the first woman President of the New Jersey Bar
Association. She was a generous spirit, unwavering in her
beliefs, and extremely loyal to her friends and family. Marie
believed in the importance of philanthropy and practiced
what she preached. She was active on several boards,
including the Hackensack University Medical Center. She
was a founder of our organization and one of its driving
forces, devoting a tremendous amount of time, energy, and
financial resources over the years. Marie was truly proud
of her Italian heritage and very active in Italian-American
organizations and causes. She will be greatly missed by so
many, both on a personal and professional level.

To all our friends in the HRPAC community:
My profound greetings for this year’s gala. It is fitting,
but with deep sorrow and regret to reflect on the loss of
a great lady, our dear Marie Garibaldi, the Honorable
former Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court.
This exquisite and remarkable woman spent her gracious
and graceful life among us, exemplifying the high order
of civility, kindness, love and community responsibility.
For those of us who knew her personally, it is hard to
comprehend the future without her, but we know she
left her mark on all of us in such gentle but unforgettable ways. Always a lady, gushing with unquenchable
spirit and an inner glow that penetrated all around her,
marking her uniqueness as this dear friend whom we
all love and whose memory we will cherish and whose
unique life presence we will miss forever into the future.
