Mrs. Genevieve H. Dziedzic Verescak, 94, died Friday, November 18, 2022, in the Raritan Bay Medical Center – the Old Bridge Division.
We respectfully request that no one arrive at the funeral home prior to the posted visitation times, so as not to intrude on the family’s private time.
Family and friends are invited to the visitation in the Kowalski Funeral Home, 515 Roselle Street, Linden on Tuesday, November 22nd. from 4:00-8:00PM. On Wednesday, November 23rd. at 8:30AM, everyone will start to gather in the funeral home where a prayer service will begin at 9:00AM, followed by the funeral mass to be offered in St. Theresa of the Child Jesus Roman Catholic Church in Linden at 10:00AM. The prayers of committal will precede Mrs. Verescak’s burial in the family plot in Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Linden, New Jersey.
Mrs. Verescak, the daughter of the late Frances Zajonc Dziedzic and the late Wladyslaw Dziedzic was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey. She resided in Linden, New Jersey for twenty-eight years before relocating to Old Bridge, New Jersey in December of 2011.
Mrs. Verescak’s heart was filled with joy when she would be gathering with her family. That made her day complete! A religious woman, Mrs. Verescak took great comfort in attending church and just sitting and saying her prayers. Surprising to most acquaintances, Mrs. Verescak was a huge NY Yankee baseball fan, and she would watch them on the television every chance she got. Her evening entertainment was also filled with the television programming of Jeopardy (which she really didn’t understand) and The Wheel of Fortune which kept her guessing for the right answers.
Mrs. Verescak came from a very large family and was predeceased by her five brothers Stanley Dziedzic, Joseph Dziedzic, John Dziedzic, Ignatius Dziedzic and Frank Dziedzic and her two sisters, Helen Hendrzak and Stella Folcik and sadly, Mrs. Verescak’s own daughter, Diane C. Condron in 2011.
Mrs. Verescak is survived by her son, Paul E. Verescak and his wife, Regina; her daughter, Theresa Van Orden; her three grandchildren, Alexandra Mershon and her husband, James, Jaclyn T. Verescak and Michael D. King and her newly born great granddaughter, Mallory Mershon.
It was very difficult for Mrs. Verescak to have all her brothers and sisters pass away. Being the last is never easy because Mrs. Verescak wondered why the Lord kept her here while everyone else had left. As sad as it is to lose our mother, grandmother, and now great grandmother, we rejoice in the fact that Genevieve has now joined together with all her family members and friends who were waiting at the gates of heaven for her arrival. Oh, what a party must be going on!
