Urn containing the ashes of a Georgia woman stranded in New Jersey


OCEAN CITY, NJ – Paulette Eva Rose Tricoche died last summer at the age of 71.

The Reidsville, Georgia woman was cremated and her ashes placed in a purple urn, engraved with her birth and death dates and a simple message: “In Loving Memory Mom.”

On Oct. 7, this urn washed up in Ocean City, New Jersey, more than 800 miles from the Georgia town of 5,000 west of Savannah.

Ryan Leonard, 39, said his children found the urn in seagrass outside their home on Friday.

Jackson, 7, and Reid, 3, were sifting through “seagrass that had washed up in the storm,” Leonard said in an interview Friday.

It was found with other random things like small buoys and a seesaw.
