Obituary for Dolores Jane Zilincar

Dolores Jane Zilincar, a Holmdel resident of over 50 years, passed away on September 7, 2018, in the loving embrace of her grandchildren Bridgett Thorpe-Firsichbaum and Peter Thorpe, at the age of 95, while receiving care at Allegria in Ocean Grove.

Dolores was a woman ahead of her time. Driven and accomplished, she raised her own children August “Augie” Zilincar III and Dolores “Zee Zee” Zilincar, and then her grandchildren, Bridgett and Peter, all while living an amazing life with her “sweetheart”, devoted husband, August Zilincar Jr.

Although she loved being a wife, mother and grandmother, she strived for more. Dolores earned her airplane pilots license and was a proud, early member and writer for The Ninety-Nines, International Organization of Woman Pilots. Additionally, she earned a master’s degree in English from Monmouth College (now Monmouth University) while raising her children and working for the family business, Metaline Products, Inc. of South Amboy. She then worked as a substitute teacher in the community. Dolores was also an incredible artist, painting portraits of family, friends and more; her art was often highlighted at local art shows.

Dolores was predeceased by her soulmate and husband, August Zilincar Jr. and daughter Dolores “Zee Zee” Zilincar Jr. The love and joy which Dolores brought to the world will be carried on through her son, August (Kathy) Zilincar III; grandchildren Bridgett (Jamie) Thorpe-Firsichbaum, August (Natalie) Zilincar IV, Jenna (Chris) Zilincar and Peter Thorpe; beloved great-grandchildren Samantha, Jaxon, Francesca, Jamie, Lance, Daphne, and August V.

The family will receive friends and family on Monday, September 10 from 7 – 9 PM at the Holmdel Funeral Home, 26 South Holmdel Road, Holmdel. The homegoing services for Dolores will be held on Tuesday, September 11 at 11 AM at the funeral home. Interment to follow in Holmdel Cemetery. There will be an extended celebration of her life and accomplishments on Tuesday from 3 – 7 PM at the Friendly Sons of Shillelagh located at 815 16th Ave, Belmar.
