Obituary

Marilyn Harchik, (90) died on February 22, in Monroe, New Jersey.

Marilyn grew up in The Bronx. She began studying at Hunter College at age 16, and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Science. She worked as a lab technician and phlebotomist for Fordham Hospital. She married journalist Red Harchik and left the hospital to raise her family. Marilyn eventually returned to paid employment, finishing her professional life as a clerk in Rider University’s (then Rider College’s) Registrar’s office.

After retiring, Marilyn lived happily in Monroe’s Clearbrook community, where she served as her section’s secretary. She was an active member of the Computer Club for many years. She made beautiful pieces with the Jewelry Club. She avidly played bridge and cribbage. And she traveled. Marilyn explored Alaska, the Grand Canyon, and Western Europe. With her strong sense of adventure, she went tubing down the Delaware and learned to sail; she drove on goat paths in Israel’s West Bank and Scotland’s Highlands. She never stopped learning. She treasured her friends.

Despite health problems that plagued her the last years of her life, Marilyn retained her sense of humor. She is survived by her children, Suzanne, Adrienne, and Michael; by her daughter-in-law, Mary; and by her grandchildren, Patrick and Shannon. She remained until the end wise, loving, and loved.

Funeral services will be held on Sunday, February 25, 2018, at 12:30 pm at Glackin/Saul Funeral Home, 136 Morrison Avenue, Hightstown, New Jersey. Shiva details will be announced at the services.

Graveside Services and interment will follow at Floral Park Cemetery in the Dayton Section of South Brunswick.
