Eugenia “Jeanne” Rosenberg passed away on December 22, 2021.   Born in Brooklyn, NY, she was the daughter of Michael and Eugenia Gorecki.  She is survived by her daughter Rachel Onufrak and her husband Matthew; her grandchildren Mia and Nikolas Onufrak, her beloved brother Carl Rohacek, nephew Zack Rohacek and niece Ava Rohacek.  Jeanne is also survived by her sister, Marion Cross, nephew Michael Kegg and niece Lisa Michael; as well as her sister-in-law Vicky Gorecki, niece Alexis Sappenfield, and several grand-nephews and cousins including the Thorsens, the Jankowskis, the McNiffs, the Simons and the Genuarios.    

Jeanne was preceded in death by her parents, Michael and Eugenia Gorecki, her step-father Charles Rohacek, her brother Alex Gorecki, her husband, James J. Rosenberg, and her daughter Linda Rosenberg.  

Jeanne lived in West New York, NJ for most of her childhood.  She attended local schools and graduated from Memorial High School in 1960 as a member of the National Honor Society.  She worked for Penn Refining Company and then Boonton Electronics as an administrative assistant.  She married Jim Rosenberg in 1966, and they soon moved to Denville, NJ to start a family of their own.  Later, Jeanne worked for Dermatology Associates of Morris as a medical transcriptionist, and then Lucerne Media as an administrative assistant. 

After enjoying vacations in Maryland for many years, Jeanne and Jim decided to retire and move to Berlin, Maryland in 2003.  Jeanne was delighted by the ocean, the seagulls, and the more leisurely pace of her new home.

Jeanne loved her family, loved to laugh, and was a great sister.  She was a devoted mother and was kind and generous to her family and friends.  She was fond of animals and birds, and enjoyed a variety of pets throughout her lifetime.  Jeanne loved studying the Bible and attending meetings with Jehovah’s Witnesses, and she did her best to share the spiritual treasures that she learned with her family and friends.
