Urn containing Georgia woman’s ashes washes ashore in New Jersey


OCEAN CITY, N.J. — Paulette Eva Rose Tricoche died last summer at age 71.

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

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

Ryan Leonard, 39, said his kids found the urn in some sea grass outside their home on Friday.

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

It was found with other random things like small bouys and a flip flop.
