Theresa (Terry) Zdyb (nee: Kaplan) 91, a lifelong resident of Bayonne, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, June 22, 2019, at the New Jersey Eastern Star Home in Bridgewater, NJ, with her loving family by her side.

Terry was employed as a bank teller with the Broadway National Bank, a position she held for many years.  She then went on to work as a sales clerk for Wigdor Jewelry Store in Bayonne for a number of years.  Terry was a faithful parishioner of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish where she was a member of the Mt. Carmel Seniors and worked Bingo nights at the Mt. Carmel Parish Center.  In her younger years she was a dedicated mother of the Mt. Carmel School PTA.  She was also a member of the Exxon Annuitants.

Those who were touched by Terry will remember not only her kindness to others, but her sparkling personality and radiant smile.  She will be deeply missed but never forgotten.

Terry was predeceased by her beloved husband Leon Zdyb in 2006; her son Stephen Zdyb, her daughter-in-law Helene Zdyb, parents Jacob and Mary (Wichrowski) Kaplan, step-father Steve Wichrowski, three sisters, Eleanor Senkeleski, Dorothy Jakubik and Irene Wasielewski, and her brother Robert (Bobby) Kaplan. Left to cherish her memory are her daughter Kathy Conti and husband Joseph, son Leon Zdyb, sister-in-law Irene Kaplan, daughter-in-law Debi (Stephen) Zdyb, four grandchildren, Jacqueline Conti Muratore and husband Steve, Kathleen Conti-Burke and husband Ryan, Stephanie Zdyb-Diaz and husband Jimmy, and Brianna Marie Zdyb, and one great-grandson Jiovanni Diaz.

A visitation will be held at the Dworzanski & Son Funeral Home on Wednesday, June 26, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm and 7:00 to 9:00 pm.   A funeral mass in Terry’s honor will be offered on Thursday, June 27, at 10:00 am from the Parish of St. John Paul II at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church. Interment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery, North Arlington, NJ.
