Rene Rachel Verghese, a resident of Skillman, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, at Penn Medical Center in Plainsboro, at the age of 55. Originally from Paduthodu, Kerala, India, she immigrated to the United States in 2001.

Rene held the position of Partner at Schulman Lobel, a public accounting and advisory firm, where she managed the New Jersey office. She earned her Bachelor of Commerce degree from Stella Maris College, and an MBA from Madras University, and held a CPA License in New Jersey.
