Sadie Karczewski, (nee Zaleski), 92, of Bayonne, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 26, 2018, at Care One in Wayne, NJ. “Sadie" as she was affectionately known by her family and friends, was born in Jersey City and has resided in Bayonne most of her life. A homemaker, Sadie’s favorite pastimes were taking trips to Atlantic City and doing cross word puzzles, but nothing brought her more joy than spending time with her family and friends.

Sadie was predeceased by her husband Leon Karczewski (in 1999); her son Frank Zaleski; her five sisters, Irene Mayer, Frances Hrycenko and her husband William; Mary Podolski and her husband Stanley; Sophie Swezinski and her husband Stanley, and Loretta Fugaro and her husband Anthony; and her brother Teddy Zaleski and his wife Jean. Left to cherish her memory are her three stepsons, Robert, Ronald and Richard Karczewski; her sister Jean Donofrio and her husband John; her brother Walter Zaleski and his wife Maryann; two grandchildren, Thomas and Joann, two great-grandchildren, and her brother in law Artie Mayer.  Also survived by many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grand nephews.
