Obituary

ean Maykish, 92, of Roseland, N.J., passed away on Friday November 29, 2019 surrounded by 25 of her closest loved ones. Her passing was sudden, yet peaceful - just as she hoped it would be.

Born in Providence, Rhode Island, Jean spent most of her life in Northern New Jersey where she raised her three beautiful daughters - Nancy, Susan, and Carol. Jean was known for making everyone who met her feel like part of the family, especially her niece Linda, who she considered a fourth daughter. In addition to her daughters, Jean is survived by her devoted and loving husband, Frank (some may call him Romeo), and her eight grandchildren - Derek (29), Nicholas (28), Gabrielle (28), Serena (27), Alexandra (26), Sabrina (23), Luke (21), and Dominique (20).

Jean exemplified what it means to live a full life. She may have been 92 years in age, but she was mentally and spiritually far younger. Up until her passing, Jean worked three to four days a week as a fundraiser at Outreach Calling in Fairfield, NJ. When she was not at work, she was constantly keeping herself busy- working out, spending time with family, calling her daughters, splitting meals at the local diner with Frank, getting her hair done by Nancy, and making her specialty meatball dinners for her loved ones.

When Jean passed, the hospital staff was moved by the number of family and friends that rushed to say goodbye just one last time. This is a testament to the kind of person Jean was - important and influential to everyone she touched.

Visitation will be on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 from 4-8 p.m. at Shook-Farmer Funeral Home, 45 Roseland Avenue, Roseland, N.J. 07068. Cremation will be private at Rosedale Crematory, Montclair, N.J. Memories and condolences may be shared at shookfarmer.com.
