Jeannette Pieczarka

Pieczarka, Jeannette 001SOUTHWICK – Jeannette Mary Ann (Brochu) Pieczarka, age 90, passed away at her home in the comfort of her loving family. Jeannette was born in Canada, on February 26, 1923, a daughter of the late Alphonse and Olive (LeMieux) Brochu.
Prior to her retirement, Jeannette was a Home Health Aide, for over 15 years, employed by West Hills, in Westfield. She and her husband owned their own nursery “Fuss-n-Feathers Farm” where they raised their kids among the meadows and brook. In her later years she enjoyed planting flowers, baking with her grandchildren, and always played a mean game of “high-low-jack”. Apart from everything, Jeannette will always be remembered for her kindness and charm, and her witty comments that could make anyone laugh even in the worst of times. Jeannette’s family would like to thank Ernie Moccio for being her uplifting comfort and a cherished friend to keep company.
She was the wife of William J. Pieczarka, to whom she married in 1948. Jeannette is also survived by a son, David Pieczarka of New York; 2 daughters, Donna Mussmann and her son-in-law Gustave, of Hawley, PA, Joan Bannish of Southwick; 2 sisters, Lillian Martin and Yvette Jones both of Michigan; a special family member, Jonathan D.
