Kathleen Susan Pierce
Kathleen S. Pierce,74, of Bayonne/Pompton Plains, New Jersey passed away peacefully on 1-9-21 from a lingering illness.
Born in New York on 9-28-46, she was the second child of John and Veronica Janis. Kathy graduated from DePaul Catholic High School where she met many lifelong friends, including her first husband Dennis Brew which she married in 1965 and raised three sons with until his death in 1980. In 1990, she married David Pierce.
She embodied not only beauty, but brains as well. She was the editor for the local newspaper, The Lincoln Herald, and later as a paralegal/office manager for several attorneys. Between her outgoing personality, empathetic ear, witty sense of humor and contagious laughter….it was no wonder she became friends with many that she met, whether professionally or personally.
She worked hard but played even harder. While she loved traveling and the beach/pool, it really did not matter where she was or what she was doing…just as long as she was with friends and family. As many who knew her could attest to, there was never enough time in the day to get it all in…playing games, talking, and joking around into to the wee hours of the night! She truly personified “Joie de Vivre”.
She is survived by her husband David Pierce…sister Tina Wigodsky…brothers John & Mark Janis…sons and daughters-in-laws Larry & Carol Brew, Mike & Cathy Brew, Dennis & Alaina Brew…grandchildren Ashley, Janis, Nick, Stephanie, Caitlyn, Zach, and Bryce….great grandchildren Joseph, Tamara, and Mila.
