Jean M. Eckman (Filippine) passed away on May 4, 2023 at Cooper Hospital in Camden at the age of 92. She was born in Burlington and remained a lifelong resident. She was a beloved and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and spent her time caring and raising her children and many others. Jean enjoyed gardening, cooking, and especially having her family over for Sunday dinners. She loved doing Search a Word puzzles, watching wrestling and cooking shows. Her favorite pastime was being outdoors and sitting on her front porch. She was a dedicated parishioner of St. Paul Church in Burlington and a member of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 79.

Filippine, Jr., nieces Gloria Filippine and Linda Samperi, and many great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins and friends including a dear lifelong friend/neighbor Robert Pallante.
