Obituary of Donna Marie Ozbalikcigiller
Donna Marie Farese Ozbalikcigiller passed away unexpectedly in Morristown, NJ, on Tuesday, January 31, 2023 at the young age of 65. Donna was a loving wife, sister, aunt, and friend to many.
Donna was born in Belleville and raised in Newark, NJ. While she was in completing her education, she met her now husband Max in 1973. Shortly after, she graduated Essex County Vocational Technical High School in 1975. While she was in school, Max was in the air force, once he came home, they got happily married in 1979. Donna has been a loyal employee to Tropar Manufacturing in Florham Park where she worked for 38 years as a Customer Service Manager. Donna was a true fashionista and would always leave the house looking her best! She was always done up with her jewelry and makeup. It didn’t matter if it was going to a flea market, flower shows, or local traveling to zoos and Amish shops. Donna was an avid animal lover; she loved her bird Kiki and her sweet puppy Bella. She loved to snuggle with her puppy while watching her favorite shows Twilight Saga and Dark Shadows. Others often described her as an angel, always putting others first and always being so thoughtful and caring.
Donna’s memory will live on forever through her loving husband Max Ozbalikcigiller of nearly 45 years. Her devoted siblings Karen (John) McEvoy, Linda Farese Perez, and Ralph (Linda) Farese. Her sweet nieces and nephews Kelly, Johnny, Stephanie, Erica, Joey, Christina, Diana, Annie and Mark. Along with her great nephew Joshua Alvarez. She also leaves behind her loving In Laws Sara (Ray) Devincenzi, Moose Hacili, and Susan (Max) Hazer.
