Daria Renee Amoroso-McCue, age 40, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 7th, 2021 after a heroically fought battle with FTD (Frontotemporal Dementia). A beloved mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend and social worker, Daria remains in our hearts forever as a kind and generous young woman. She was born on September 21st 1980 in Long Branch, NJ and was raised by Michael and Renee Amoroso. She attended Shore Regional High School (crowned homecoming queen!) and then went on to graduate from Monmouth University with a Master’s degree in Social Work. She married James Anthony McCue Jr. and together they made two beautiful twin children Kendall Renee and Logan James McCue, born on October 3rd, 2013. Daria served proudly as a Social Worker for the Division of Child Protection and Permanency where she supported hundreds of families and ensured the safety and well-being of Monmouth County’s children. At work and at home, Daria calmed and delighted everyone with her gentle, soft-spoken energy and sweet countenance.
Family, friends and others whose lives Daria touched are invited to the John E. Day Funeral Home, 85 Riverside Ave. Red Bank, NJ 07701, from 2pm- 6pm on Sunday, July 11th, 2021. A funeral service and remembrances will take place at 5pm.
The family would like to express our thanks for the incredible support and care received by our friends and the community at large. The meals, the prayers and the hope have kept us strong and we are as eternally grateful as our Daria is up in heaven.
In Daria’s memory the family strongly requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration: https://www.theaftd.org/.
