Richard Katen

Having lived a life filled with gratitude for God’s blessings, Richard Aziz Katen, “Dick,” went home to God on May 10, 2021, in Princeton. He was 93.

The son of loving parents, Aziz Katen and Olga Haddad Katen, Dick grew up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, and attended Fort Hamilton High School. He was drafted immediately after graduation to serve in the U.S. Army of Occupation in Italy in WWII. After the war, he entered college and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Syracuse University College of Business Administration where he was recognized by Beta Gamma Sigma, the international business honor society. He then further served his country as a First Lieutenant in the Air Force in Korea and Japan during the Korean War.

In 1955 he married Jeanne Marie Borab, and they were married for 66 years. They liked to say they met before they were even born. Their grandparents from both sides were founders of the Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church in Bay Ridge, so Dick and Jeanne grew up in the church. After Dick returned from Korea, they were married.

Dick began his career in retail in the management training program of Abraham & Strauss. With his family that now included a baby daughter, he searched for the best possible location to both open a business and raise a family. He chose Princeton, and with his closest friend, opened Home Décor in the Princeton Shopping Center in 1957. For the next 30 years, until the store closed in 1987, shoppers were drawn not just by lovely home furnishings, but by the kind and loving man that would light up the room and put a smile on every face.

Dick was a loyal member of Nassau Presbyterian Church where he served as both a Deacon and an Elder. He served on the board of the Princeton Cemetery for more than 25 years, was President of The Princeton Lions Club, volunteered at the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, and was an active member of The Old Guard of Princeton, The Nassau Club, and Mercer Investors. He was particularly proud to have served on the board of Crisis Ministry (now Arm in Arm), where he played a key role in transforming the food pantry operation to a store-model, enabling clients to shop and make their own grocery selections.

For more than 36 years, Dick and Jeanne spent their winters in Florida where Dick was a volunteer pastoral visitor at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale. Always quick with a joke and a kind word, he brought comfort and love and made hospital life a little easier for both staff and patients.

Dick enjoyed traveling, reading, and following the markets. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family. He was a beloved husband, father, and grandfather. He is survived by Jeanne Borab Katen, beloved wife of 66 years; daughter BJ and son-in-law William Katen-Narvell; granddaughters Alexandra, Victoria, and Elizabeth Katen-Narvell; and many nieces and nephews who held him dear. He is predeceased by his elder sisters Violet Miller, Laurice Freda, and Florence Traboulsi.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Nassau Presbyterian Church or Arm in Arm, both located at 61 Nassau Street, Princeton, NJ 08542.

Arrangements are under the direction of Mather-Hodge Funeral Home, Princeton.

Mary Anne was born in Jersey City, NJ, in November 1938 to her parents Anne Miriam and John Hehir. Both parents were retired New York City school teachers who moved to Princeton in 1976. Mary Anne grew up on Long Island and graduated from Sacred Heart Academy in Hempstead, New York. She then enrolled in Georgian Court College in New Jersey and graduated from Newton College of the Sacred Heart in Newton, MA, in 1960.

Kennedy’s senatorial campaign and moved to Washington, D.C. when he was elected. She moved back to Manhattan, after a short stay in Washington, D.C., and went into the design business.

In 1976, she moved to Princeton to live with her parents. In 1982, she met and married Charles B. Helms of Princeton. He died late in 1984. In the 1990s she started a gift shop on Nassau Street, A Little Bit of What You Fancy. After the closure of the shop, she focused her energies on the care of her mother, who passed away in 2003.

She then moved to Middletown, Rhode Island, to be near her friends from Newton College. In 2005, she moved back to Princeton where she resided until her demise.

Hehir, Jr. and Roswitha, of Skillman, NJ; a niece, Angelique Michelle Loveday of Jacksonville, FL; a nephew, John J.

Lucy McVicker

Lucy Claire Graves McVicker was 90 years old when she passed quietly in her sleep on May 9, 2021. Her parents were Herbert Cornelius Graves II and Josephine Lee Yost. She was born in Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County, PA, and grew up there and on a farm in Allegheny County, PA, with her sister, Nancy, and her brother, Herbert. They were a close-knit family.

Lucy studied English and Art, and she received her B.A. from Principia College in Elsah, Illinois. She married Charles Taggart McVicker in 1954. They lived first at Fort Knox, KY, and in Los Angeles, CA, finally settling in Princeton, NJ, in 1957, where she lived the rest of her life.

Her greatest pride was her family. She had four children: Lauri, Christopher, Bonnie, and Heather. Lucy loved nothing more than seeing their successes and supporting them in life’s trials.

Lucy also had a successful career as an award-winning artist. After attending Parsons School of Design in New York City she continued to study and painted vigorously. As her creativity expressed itself, she became known, and her work is in many private and corporate collections. She was a founding member of the Princeton Artists Alliance. Lucy has won prizes in art shows sponsored by The American Watercolor Society, The New Jersey Watercolor Society, and The Garden State Watercolor Society, and she is a signature member of each of these.

Lucy was a devout member of the Christian Science Church, serving in many capacities. Her love of God was unending. She was also a member of the Mayflower Society as a descendent of Captain Myles Standish.

Lucy loved every person she met. She embraced everyone with a huge smile, a hug, and a look that said, I want to know more about you. She loved to teach art, and many of her students, including family members, will never forget her patient, gentle lessons. The loss of Lucy’s presence will be felt by family, friends, and many in the Princeton community.

She is predeceased in death by her son, Christopher. She is survived by her husband of 67 years, Charles, and her daughters, Lauri McVicker, Bonnie Wilson, and Heather Teffenhart and their respective partner/spouses, Darlene Lowe, Peter Wilson, and Robert Teffenhart. She is also survived by her five grandchildren, Emily, Sarah, Trisha, Christine, and Daniel, as well as three great-grandchildren, Charles, William, and Olivia.

A private memorial service will be held for the family this summer. Lucy loved the environment, especially birds, trees, and flowers. Donations in her memory may be given to the New Jersey Audubon Society:

Arrangements are under the direction of the Mather-Hodge Funeral Home.


Rose B. Rickert

Rose Belfiore Rickert passed away on May 3, 2021. Rose was born in North Hempstead, New York, on June 2, 1926 to Filomena and Alfonso Belfiore. Rose was married to Herb for 66 wonderful years before he passed away in 2017. She is predeceased by her son Ken and her granddaughter Allison.

Surviving Rose are her children Nancy (Bert), Leslie (Jim), Don (Kay), and Neil (Susan). She leaves behind grandchildren Gwynne, Christopher, Amie, Keelan, Jaime, Emily, Ruth, and Ryan; and two great-grandchildren, Anselm and Cecilia. Rose also leaves behind a nephew, Dennis (Karin).

The greatest source of happiness in her life was her family. The gathering of the “clan” for any occasion was a joyous, raucous, fun time. Although most of the cooking was done by the Chief Chef, she usually had more help than she needed! In demand were Rose’s lasagna, cheesecake, and “that dessert.”  Her Easter pie was a once-a-year treat. Rose was also a very organized person, always anticipating what was needed. This includes this obituary which (for the most part) is in her own words.

As a member of All Saints’ Church in Princeton, NJ, Rose was active on several committees, but her first love was arranging flowers for the Sunday services and other occasions. Being an usher for many occasions was always an honor. She always considered All Saints’ Church her second home with a large, loving family.

Rose’s last place of employment was Princeton Theological Seminary. She worked in several departments until becoming Business Manager for the quarterly journal, “Theology Today.”  When grandchildren began arriving, she retired and spent many blissful hours with “the kids.”

The family would like to acknowledge the love and support from Vitas Hospice, the 24-hour Springpoint aides, and especially from the remarkable staff at Meadow Lakes. We will forever be thankful for your exceptional care of Rose and support to our family.

Memorial services are to be determined.
