Kristine J. McClanahan, 55, passed away peacefully at home on August 28, 2020, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Jersey City, she resided in Brick for most of her life before settling in Bayonne.
Kristine passionately embraced her role as a proud homemaker caring for the needs of her family. She was the true definition of what a most genuine, loving wife and mother was. Known to many for her easy-going personality, the simplest things in life gave Kristine the most pleasure. In her spare time she looked forward to going to the beach, shopping with her friends and playing board games with her adored son, Jorge.
Kristine was predeceased by her beloved parents, Leslie and Jane Maglione. Left to cherish her memory are her devoted husband of 30 years, Jorge Hernandez, children, Cynthia, Jennifer, Linda, and Jorge McClanahan, four sisters, Lori Melillo, Lisa Maglione, Terri Maglione, and Donna Gozzolino, five brothers, Chester McClanahan, Russell McClanahan, Richard Maglione, Steven Maglione, and Michael Maglione, five grandchildren, Nature, Angel, Jacob, Dennis, and Mylah. Also survived by many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.
A visitation will be held at the Dworzanski & Son Funeral Home on Saturday, September 5, from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. A religious service will be conducted in the funeral home chapel at 5:30 p.m. by Kristine’s nephew, Anthony Melillo, Pastor of the Riverside Chapel in Florence, NJ. A private cremation will be held at Rosehill Crematory, Linden, NJ.
Miss Me But Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little-but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me-but let me go
For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me but let me go.
