Holmdel - Julia Geraldine O'Donnell, known to all as Jerry, passed away on September 22, 2017, in Holmdel, NJ, from cancer.

Jerry was born in Washington DC, on November 28, 1931, to Dr. John and Hazel Allen. She was the middle of three daughters. She spent most of her life living in Bayonne, NJ. Jerry graduated from Holy Family Academy in 1949, had a long career working for the federal government, and then retired in 1988. In 1990, Jerry married the love of her life, Leo O'Donnell, and moved to Boonton. After Leo passed in 2014, Jerry moved to Holmdel to be close to her sister, Terry.

Jerry was known for her love of everything Irish; naturally, her favorite color was green. Jerry loved joking around with everyone, and was the family poet, surprising everyone with her wit and insight at special family gatherings.

Jerry is survived by her sister Mary Ann Supple and many loving cousins and nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her husband's children, Eileen McNally, Regina Bonner, Michael O'Donnell, Thomas O'Donnell, Brian O'Donnell, and their many children and grandchildren.

A memorial Mass will be held at St. Benedict's Catholic Church in Holmdel on December 9, 2017, at 11:30 am, with a repast reception immediately following at La Riviera in Matawan. Interment will take place in the spring of 2018 in a private family service in Virginia, where Jerry's ashes will be laid to rest with those of her loving mother.
