“We believe in the potential of this project,” said Carmelo Garcia, deputy mayor and director of economic and housing development, regarding a plan to restore the vacant Krueger-Scott Mansion, a palatial Victorian-era house built at the corner of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Court Street, after decades of dormancy. “We want to do something groundbreaking and transformative that will catalyze this area.”
Fred and Margaret, of Clifton, N.J., died one month apart during the winter.
The couple, whose last name their children asked not to divulge, met in high school and were married for 69 years. They were inseparable.

They made arrangements years ago: Margaret, 87, would take the last grave in the family’s plot at St. Nicholas Cemetery in Lodi, N.J. Fred, 88, a devout Catholic who was born some 30 years before the Vatican lifted its ban on cremation in 1963, decided his ashes would be buried by her head.
