In Memory of Janina V. McCloskey July 15, 1932 – December 30, 2014

We are  saddened to share the news that our dear friend Janina McCloskey passed away before the new year.  Janina was an OSWGA  charter member & Swansea Country Club member. She was a past recipient of  The Trudy Dufault Service Award, served on many OSWGA committees over the years,  as well as being the Nominating Chair for the past 5 years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

 

In Memory of
Janina V. McCloskey
July 15, 1932 – December 30, 2014
Obituary

Janina (Pietraszek) McCloskey, a former Fall River Public Schools teacher and Lead Teacher of the City’s Head Start Program, passed away December 30, at Charlton Memorial Hospital after an unexpected illness. She was 82 years of age.
Born in Fall River, a daughter of the late Jan F. and Joanna (Maciag) Pietraszek, she was the wife of 58 years of Thomas M. McCloskey. They resided at Waterview Heights after having lived for 38 years at 1393 Robeson Street raising their loving family of five children.
Janina was a graduate of the former Dominican Academy and earned a Bachelor and Masters educational degrees from Bridgewater State University. She taught at the John J. Doran and Pine Street Schools in Fall River.
In the mid-1960’s, she became the Lead Teacher as Citizens for Citizens launched Fall River’s Head Start Program at the former Park United Church on North Main Street and later at its Quarry Street Methodist Church location. She retired from that Program to raise her family.
Janina was an ardent golfer and a long-time member of the Swansea Country Club, where she won several Ladies Division Championships, and took great pleasure in annual golfing trips with her husband to Myrtle Beach, SC. She also was very active with the Ocean State Women’s Golf Association, both as a tournament participant and association officer.
Following maternal tradition, Janina was fond of her kitchen and joyfully shared it with the children, Polish foods being a particular delight. She enjoyed dining out, sharing recipes, and critiquing TV food shows. Janina was always comfortable with a good book and her daily newspaper crossword puzzles.
Her greatest delights, though, were her children and their children. Enforced by her unfailing love, each received invaluable life-betterment attention from their Grand, including an appreciation of the wonderment and beauty of nature’s flowers and birds. Any family gathering was important to her and a cherished occasion.
In addition to her husband, their surviving 1393 family includes Christina, Justin and his wife Leslie, Adam and Christian McCloskey, and Megan Mandeville and her husband Peter, and her very special Anioleks (Angels): grandchildren Sarah and Alexander Madison- McCloskey, Mathew and Michelle McCloskey, and Cole and Abigail Mandeville, and great granddaughter Kaitlyn Madison-McCloskey. She is survived also by her brother, Jan F. Pietraszek and his wife Margaret, an aunt and several nephews and cousins.
In a typical Janina gesture of thoughtfulness and charity, she donated her remains to the Harvard Medical School, for education, research, and science/therapy advancement.
A Memorial Mass for Janina will be celebrated on Saturday, January 10, 2015 at 10:00AM in Holy Name Church, 709 Hanover St., Fall River. Relatives and friends are invited. The family will greet guests at the church prior to her Mass from 9:30 to 10:00AM.
In lieu of flowers the family the family asks that you take a loved one to dinner or make a donation to a charity of your choice.
