Jeanne Walsky (née Gerlando), 89, longtime resident of Woodcliff Lake, passed away Saturday, September 18, 2021. Jeanne grew up in Bayridge, Brooklyn and graduated from Bishop McDonnell High School in 1950. She is predeceased by her husband Harold Walsky and is survived by her children Andrea Kircher of Ramsey, NJ, Philip Walsky of New Market, MD, and her grandchildren Theresa Kircher-Luciano, Jeanne Kircher, Christine Walsky and Aidan Walsky.
Jeanne was a devoted mother and grandmother who loved to read, solve (mostly) crossword puzzles, travel, and was a true Star Trek fan. Her biggest joy was being involved in the lives of her beloved grandchildren – a role that can never be replaced.
Her love, warmth, wisdom and spunky “Brooklyn Girl” sense of humor will be sorely missed by all who loved and knew her. Although Jeanne spent most of her life in New Jersey, you could never take the “Brooklyn” out of the “Brooklyn Girl.” “Here I go and here I go.”
