It is with heavy hearts that the family of Janet L. Walczyk announces her peaceful passing on Tuesday, February 2, 2021. Born and raised in Bayonne, NJ on July 14, 1948, she was the daughter of the late John Paul and Helen (Stec) Walczyk.
Janet received her bachelor’s degree in business from Saint Peter's University where she went on to work for many years as a supervisor for Western Electric and then AT&T. Janet took great joy in working side by side with her father and his brother Ted in running the family business, Walczyk's Tavern on Ave. F & 24th Street in Bayonne, a business that was founded in 1927 by her grandfather, Martin Walczyk. With her radiant smile and love for people, Janet continued to successfully run the business after her father's passing in 1999.
A communicant of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, Janet was gifted with a beautiful voice where she sang alto in the St. Cecilia Choir for many years. Her ultimate passion was traveling to various destinations. From skiing trips to Aspen Colorado with her wonderful group of close friends, to trips to Europe, Istanbul and Hawaii, to name a few, Janet lived life to the fullest with a spirited energy. She will be missed immensely and loved eternally. Left to cherish her memory are her sister Lorraine Borow and her husband Edward; nephews, Douglas Borow (Kathleen) and Christopher Borow (AnnMarie), grand-nephews, Nicholas and AJ Borow and many dear friends.
A visitation will be held for immediate family only. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a funeral mass in Janet’s honor on Tuesday, February 9, at 11:30 am from the Parish of St. John Paul II at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, 39 East 22nd Street, Bayonne. Everyone is asked to arrive at church by 11:15 am. A private interment will be held at Holy Cross Cemetery, North Arlington, NJ.
In lieu of flowers, donations to The Diabetes Association in memory of Janet would be most appreciated.
“A beautiful life”
A beautiful life
that came to an end,
she died as she lived,
In our hearts a memory
will always be kept,
of one we loved, and
will never forget.
