Marilyn Polomski Obituary, Death – On May 12, Marilyn Polomski entered the arms of the Lord. Emil Mozzi, deceased, was born on February 8, 1947, in Union City, New Jersey. She received her education in the community and graduated with a degree in Kindergarten/Primary Education from Jersey City State College after attending Harry Gilmore School and Emerson High School. Marilyn and Raymond Polomski got married on July 5, 1970, after meeting at JCSC. Before Marilyn and Ray relocated to River Vale, New Jersey, she worked as a teacher at Robert Waters Elementary School in Union City.
She later worked in a variety of offices, including those of Liquid Solids Corp. in Northvale, Randall and Randall Esqs. in Westwood, and Frank Franklin, MD in Northvale, where she served as office manager. When Marilyn visited the River Vale Manor and got to know some of the senior residents, she discovered her true calling in life. The residents and staff loved her for her ability to make them laugh and be a pleasant ear. Marilyn joined the Valley Hospital Respite Care Team as a volunteer after learning from her experiences. There, her cheery demeanor, empathetic nature, and piano playing provide many people a sense of serenity and let them forget their problems.
When Marilyn used the lessons she gained from visiting her uncle Joseph Cona while he was ill, these events gave her the greatest sense of fulfillment. She showed compassion and affection to her mother and father as they battled illnesses. Among the many philanthropic organizations that Marilyn sponsored were Save the Children, H.O.P.E. in Booneville, Kentucky, and animal foundations. She was also very giving. Tippy and Sweetie, the two cats she adopted, were her constant companions and comforters. Marilyn additionally supported the F.A.I.T.H. Foundation, which helped the homeless. Ray and Marilyn spent years providing financial assistance and personal belongings to the underprivileged in Bergen County.
Hosting dinners for the Christmas and Easter holidays was one of Marilyn’s greatest joys. She was a fantastic cook and created delectable dishes and deserts. This, along with her love of holiday decoration, were two things she was very passionate about. Marilyn had a deep affection for animals and donated to several animal charities. Tippy and Sweetie, the cats she and Ray adopted, brought them a lot of happiness and entertainment. Ray, Marilyn’s dedicated and devoted husband, Teresa Giovannone and her family, Bob Smith and his family, and her friends all survive her.
