Geraldine P. Czarkowski Obituary
FRANKFORD - Geraldine P. Czarkowski, age 58, of Frankford Township, passed away Friday evening, Jan. 5, 2018, at her home peacefully, surrounded by her loving family following a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Born and raised in Bebington Cheshire, England, she had also lived many years in Dublin, Ireland, before moving to Morristown in 1990. In 1997 Geraldine settled in Frankford to raise her family.
A graduate of the London Montessori School in Dublin, Ireland, she also earned her degree in special education from Sussex County Community College in 2008. Geraldine had a rewarding career with the Sussex County Charter School for Technology as a teacher's aide and a permanent substitute teacher.
A loving and devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend of many, Geraldine was a dedicated member of the Frankford-Hampton-Lafayette Moms Club. She was a proud fan of the Liverpool Football Club and enjoyed many activities, notably knitting, having long conversations, and eating "real food, not rubbish." A long time and devout parishioner of the Our Lady Queen of Peace Roman Catholic Church Branchville, Geraldine's love, loyalty and selflessness will truly be missed by all who knew her. Geraldine would want you spend time with your children, do things with your loved ones, and make a toast to enduring friendships lifelong and beyond. She would want everyone to keep a positive attitude alive in their hearts, be brave, and when things get rough, remember that "such is life, and say yes and keep going." That is what Geraldine would wish for you.
Mrs. Czarkowski was predeceased in life by her father, Joseph Poole in 2012 and a sister-in-law, Rebecca Poole in 2010.
Survivors include her beloved husband of 20 years, Steven F. Czarkowski; her cherished daughter, Aileen P. Czarkowski, of Frankford; and her mother, Patricia A. (O'Connor) Poole, of Dublin, Ireland. Also surviving are her sisters, Nicola M. Harris, of Cairo, Egypt, and Ann T. and her husband, John Quinn, of Dublin, Ireland; her brother, Damian J. Poole, of Dublin, as well as many nieces and nephews.
A Christian Funeral Mass will be Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018, at 10 a.m., in the Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church, 209 Route 206, Branchville. Private cremation services will follow. Visitation will be held Tuesday, Jan. 9 from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m., in the Iliff-Ruggiero Funeral Home, 156 Main St. (Route 206), Newton.
