Her cremation in Rosehill Crematory, Linden will be private and the family has entrusted Geraldine into the care of the Kowalski Funeral Home, 515 Roselle Street, Linden, New Jersey 07036.

Geraldine, the daughter of the late Helen Theresa Duchlinski Krynicki and the late Edward “Sarge” Krynicki was born and raised in Elizabeth, New Jersey.  After her marriage to the love of her life, Alfred, they moved to Roselle Park, New Jersey where they resided until 2018 when they decided to settle in Robbinsville, New Jersey.

Geraldine was a 1968 graduate of Battin High School in Elizabeth and after that she attended the Wilfred Beauty Academy in Newark, New Jersey.

Upon completion of her schooling, Geraldine started a long career as a beautician working for the Pellicone Beauty Shop in Scotch Plains from 1968 to 2016.  After that, she worked for Nancy’s Hair Studio, also in Scotch Plains, before earning her well-deserved retirement in 2018. 

Throughout her life, Geraldine enjoyed entertaining family and friends.  She certainly was the “hostess with the mostest”!  Geraldine loved to have large family dinners where she cooked enough food to feed a small army and made sure everyone had leftovers to take home for a late-night snack.  Geraldine was certainly an exceptional cook, but she was a baker extraordinaire.  Anyone that knew her well, loved and certainly looked forward to tasting her famous Christmas cookies.  In the summertime, Geraldine turned into the true “Jersey Girl’ - spending time at her summer home by the shore in Toms River.  There she could enjoy the salt air, the beautiful blue sky, warm sand and taking a dip in the ocean or the bay.  Geraldine delighted in listening to good music.  She could make an excellent drink and she absolutely loved cruises.  However, even with all this, nothing in life gave Geraldine greater joy than spending time with her grandchildren, Camille and Jack.  Their beautiful smiles and silly laughter brought joy to her heart.  Geraldine knew and appreciated the true meaning of “family”!

She leaves behind the broken hearts of her husband, Alfred Bartolomucci; her daughter, Pamela Bartolomucci; her two grandchildren, Camille and Jack; her two brothers, Gary Krynicki and Dean Krynicki and her other family, neighbors and friends.

Geraldine was always willing to share her life with others and had a great knack of putting people at ease.  That was only one of her many talents.  Geraldine has left behind a family who will mourn her loss for a long time, but Geraldine will never be forgotten.
