After a life well-lived, Clare Evancik (nee: Rembisz), entered into eternal rest peacefully at home on Saturday, October 2, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.
A lifelong Bayonne resident, Clare worked as a bank teller for the First Savings & Loan in Bayonne. After 10 years of
dedicated service in the banking industry, she took on the role of proud homemaker, wife, and mother.
Clare was a member and supporter of the Concerned Citizens of Bayonne as well as an active member of both the Altar and Rosary Society of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church where she was a lifelong parishioner.
Clare's deep and abiding devotion to God was a true testament that sustained her throughout her life.
While she passed this devotion onto her children, she also emphasized the importance of strong moral values and respect for others. She was a loyal and protective, daughter and daughter-in-law, who selflessly tended to the needs and well-being of her parents and mother and father-in-law when they all needed her the most.
Clare treasured family togetherness including the Polish traditions of Pisanki at Easter, the breaking of the Oplatek wafer on Christmas Eve, and making room for an extra place setting at the dinner table for someone less fortunate. In addition, no Polish Happy Birthday was complete without a rendition of "Sto Lat".
In her leisure time, she enjoyed dancing and singing, with her favorite song being “America the Beautiful”.
She was always up for a good gameof cornhole, where she somehow came out the winner every time.
Clare will be remembered as an “Earth Angel” whose sweet demeanor and warm smile lit up a room. She made the most of each day she was given and her life exemplified beauty on the inside and out. As a result of her kindness and empathy towards others, she left an everlasting imprint that will remain in the hearts of the countless lives she touched. Clare shared her belief that life on earth is not the end, but only a transition to a new chapter to a life of eternity with God. This belief is more than just a hope, it is a comforting peace that brings happiness to all those who were blessed to have known such a remarkable woman.
Clare was predeceased by her dearly beloved husband, John Evancik Jr., her parents, John and Mary (Czajkowski) Rembisz, her mother and father-in law, John Sr. and Mary Evancik, three brothers, the Rev. Thaddeus Rembisz (Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church), Edward and Joseph Rembisz, and son-in-law, Anthony A. Summers. Left to cherish her wonderful legacy are her daughters, Clare Summers and Maryann Oldano, son-in-law, Edward, granddaughter, Larisa Oldano, and her special friend, Joyce Skibbie.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend visitation hours at the Dworzanski & Son Funeral Home on Thursday, October 7, from 2:00 to 8:00 pm, with a Catholic Religious Service in the funeral home chapel at 7:00 pm.
