October 16, 1919 - October 27, 2016
Virginia (Ginny) Zalewski, 97, passed away on October 27, 2016 at Seacrest Village, Tuckerton, NJ where she had resided over the last 5 years. Born in Camden, NJ, on October 16, 1919 to John and Pauline Frenia. Virginia was predeceased by her loving husband, Leon; her older sister, Pauline; and younger brother, Henry. Virginia is survived by two daughters, Kathy Berns, 70 (widowed) and Lynda Bednarek, 65 (Ted); as well as two grandchildren, Jordan (Whitney) and Jared; and two great grandchildren, Ryan and Hadley. She was a long time resident of Cherry Hill, NJ prior to moving to Galloway, NJ. Virginia and Leon were married for 64 wonderful years and in addition to being loving parents, they shared a mutual interest in their large garden: planting and harvesting, canning and freezing abundant crops for the winter for the family. She also spent many hours each week at the sewing machine as she loved to design and sew clothes and coats for herself, her daughters as well as formal draperies for her home. In addition to being a caring mother, Virginia’s most treasured role was that of a loving wife to Leon. It was a large benefit to her two daughters to witness, on a daily basis, the love and support she and Leon gave each other with truly never a harsh word between them. Family and friends are welcome to join the family on Sunday, October 30th and attend the 11:30 AM mass at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Absecon. At 2:30 PM, on Sunday, October 30th, a memorial graveside service will be held at Atlantic County Veterans Cemetery located in Estell Manor. With sincere appreciation and gratefulness to the staff at Seacrest Village for their steady caring and remarkable love towards “Gin-Gin” over the last five years, we ask that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Memory of Virginia Zalewski, to the Seacrest Residential Council, Seacrest Village, 1001 Center St, Little Egg Harbor, NJ 08087.
