Obituary of Janet Novoczynski
Obituary of Janet Novoczynski Born in Cliffside Park, New Jersey, Janet (nee Wyrzykowski), aged 94, passed away on August 25, 2021. Janet grew up with three sisters. As a young adult Janet worked at W.L.Cameron Company in North Bergen, where she met the love of her life, Henry Novoczynski. They later married in June 1947. The couple made their home in Brooklyn, New York, where they raised their five children. She remained there until her husband’s passing and re-located back to New Jersey living in Fairview, Iselin, Colonia and most recently, St. Joseph’s Senior Home in Woodbridge, where she was lovingly cared for by The Little Servant Sisters of the Immaculate Conception and wonderful staff. Although she wasn’t as mobile as she would have liked to be, Janet loved visits from her grandchildren. She was an avid reader, enjoyed word puzzles and playing bingo several times a week. Janet was preceded in death by her husband Henry in 1981 and her eldest son Henry in 2000. She also was preceded in death by her sisters Stella Jurkofsky and Dolores Kenny. She is survived by her daughters, Janice Menchaca, Carol Arevalo (Ruben), Elizabeth Matteo (Edmund), her son Stanley (Gail); her grandchildren, Brittany Erickson, Anthony and Nicholas Arevalo, Valerie and Debra Matteo, Nicholas and Alexa Novoczynski, Katerina Gallagher and Krista Riley. Janet was a proud great grandmother of nine. Further survived by sister, Irene Rutkowski, Janet will also be forever remembered by her numerous nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends. Even though she is gone, she has left the legacy of her love and perseverance.
