Tammy Ann Eltiliti (nee: Lombardi), 53, a lifelong resident of Bayonne, passed away on Thursday, August 13, 2020, at Hackensack Medical Center after a lengthy illness. Tammy worked in the shipping and receiving department at the Haddad Industries in Bayonne, a position she held for many years. She was a familiar face to the voters in Bayonne and Hudson County, as she dedicated her time to working the polls every election year. Her favorite pastimes included shopping in town and at the malls and trips to Atlantic City. Tammy loved and adored her precious cat Patches, and had the most compassionate heart when it came to taking care of the neighborhood strays.
Tammy was predeceased by her parents, Christine (Pudgy) Zjawin-Lombardi and Frank Lombardi. Left to cherish her memory are her brothers, Steven Lombardi and his wife Grace and Jeffrey Lombardi, four nieces, Alyssa, Gabrielle, Ava, and Brianna Lombardi, her nephew Jeffrey Lombardi. Also survived by her aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A visitation will be held at the Dworzanski & Son Funeral Home on Tuesday morning, August 18, from 9:30 am to 11:45 a.m. followed by a Catholic religious service officiated by the Rev. Pawel Dolinski of St. John Paul II Parish. Interment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery, North Arlington, NJ.
Footprints in the Sand
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you."
