Mildred R. (Sabatino) Humes died Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at Capital Health System at Fuld in Trenton. She was 102.
Born in Corona, New York to the late Robert and Camille (Kris) Sabatino, she grew up in New York City and lived in Jackson Heights, New York.

She moved to North Brunswick in 2003 and in March, 2019 to the St. Joseph's Skilled Nursing Center at Morris Hall in Lawrenceville. The Humes family is grateful beyond words to the staff at St. Joe's for their compassionate and professional care – and their friendship.
