FERRAGAME, MARY MONICA ROSE (Nee LEAGUE) JACOBS 67 - of Absecon and Philadelphia, went home to the Lord on Wednesday, March 12, 2014. She was born in Atlantic City and raised in Pleasantville, raised her children in Brigantine and the later years of her life were spent in Absecon and Philadelphia. She was a very active parishioner, being a Eucharistic minister, in different parishes in her lifetime, with the most recent being St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Absecon, where she was also a member of the choir. Among her many loves of dancing, traveling and playing canasta, her most favorite thing in the world was devoting all the time she could to helping others, especially her children and grandchildren who always made her proud. She is predeceased by her loving and devoted husband, Bud; her parents, Edgar and Rose (Mellen) League; and her brother and sisters, Ed League, Rosemary Ricci, Peggy Hopkins and Nancy Notaro.
