Nicholas Lawrence and Patricia Helen Spina


Nicholas Lawrence Spina and Patricia Helen (nee “Migdalen”) Spina of Jersey City passed away on December 19th and 20th respectively.  Having loved each other beautifully for 55 years, the family is comforted by their passing together as they cannot imagine them without each other, either in this life or the next.

Nicholas Spina was a graduate of Rutgers University and the office manager of Jackson Lewis, PC. Patricia Spina was a guidance counselor secretary at The Academy of Saint Aloysius in Jersey City.  She was the proverbial mother to so many individuals in her life, caring for anyone who needed her love and guidance which she generously shared.  The couple wed 55 years ago and spent their lives doting on each other, their family and anyone who needed their love and guidance.

Nicholas and Patricia are survived by their loving children of whom they were so proud, Christopher and Nicole Spina; Nicole’s husband Giuseppe Tubito whom they adored; their cherished granddaughter, Katarina Ella Tubito; Nicholas’ sisters Columbia Aluotto and Mary Schultz; Patricia’s brother Paul Migdalen and his wife Barbara and their children Michael and Paul Jason Migdalen and many nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be at McLaughlin Funeral for Nicholas and Patricia on Friday, December 23, 2016 from 2-9PM.  There will be a funeral service at the funeral home at 7:30pm.  Cremation will be held privately. In lieu of flowers, donations in their memories to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 would be greatly appreciated.

Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Some say that it takes a village to raise a child. I say it takes a family to raise a child. And I couldn't ask for better family than Uncle Nick and Aunt Pat. They taught me everything I know about sports and sportsmanship. They taught me to be a gracious winner and a dignified loser. I learned that the pain of a loss lasts only until the next game and in life, as in sports, the agony of death lasts only until we are reunited again in heaven. They will always have a place in my heart. Rest in peace, beloved Aunt and Uncle.
Peter and Elena Aluotto
