The entire Save Jersey family offers condolences to the family and friends of former Morris County clerk Joan Bramhall who retired just eight months ago after an extensive career serving her community and the Morris GOP.
Described by those who knew her as a friendly, cheerful woman who was always willing to assist new and younger Republican candidates in a business where that’s often not the case, Bramhall was found dead on Thursday in her Denville home along with an unidentified male. Police are reportedly classifying the tragedy as an apparent murder suicide.
Words fail. All we can do is comfort the grieving and focus on the positive legacy she left behind as both a public servant, party leader and friend to many. For example, I’m told she performed well-over 1,000 marriages during her tenure as clerk and loved to share the story of her latest marriage ceremony at an event or one-on-one. Someone who touched so many people (and couples) over the years, in such a truly profound and important way, is never truly gone and certainly never forgotten. May God bless and keep her.
