BAROFSKI, Betty Lou “Betsy”(nee Virgilio), age 84, of East Brunswick, died on April 25, 2021 at home surrounded by her devoted and loving family. Born on September 22, 1936 in Detroit, Michigan to Stephen and Rose (Poma) Virgilio, she moved to New Jersey in 1966. Betsy was an Inter-library Loan Librarian for 26 years at Rutgers University in New Brunswick before retiring in 1996. During her tenure she was a member and officer of RULSA and the Colonel Henry Rutgers Society. She spent the last several years of her career in Original Cataloging with the complex task of systematizing unidentified books so they could be utilized by inter-library loan associations nationwide.

She was a communicant at St. Bartholomew’s RC Church serving for many years with the Altar Rosary Society. Betsy volunteered for numerous philanthropic programs. Her volunteerism extended to helping out in several New Jersey and Florida hospitals, as an Exercise Therapist for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and at Memorial Grammar School for the PTA and the school library. She was a member of the East Brunswick, NJ and Clearwater, Florida Quilters’ Circles. She worked closely with former East Brunswick Mayor Jean Walling on the EB Teen Center Committee developing and overseeing programs within the youth organization. During the months that she and Pop wintered in Florida, Betsy was an adopted Grandmother to her beloved Victoria.

Betsy is predeceased by her husband of 66 years, Norman E. “Pop” Barofski in 2020, her daughter Valerie, grandson Christopher, and her sisters Anne Maniaci, Rosalie Begrie, and Ida Virgilio. She is survived by her daughters Vicki and Denise, her son Norman II, her sons-in-law Michael, Terry, and Dan, and her grandsons Richard, Matthew, and Terry Jr.

Honoring her wishes, services will be a simple, private, immediate family-only, gathering. The Barofski family is in the care of the Aloia Funeral Home, 180 Harrison Avenue, Garfield, NJ (973-340-7077). Condolences visit aloiafuneral.com
