Jerolemon R. Armocida, 97, died Monday, March 26, two days before her 98th birthday. Born in New York City, she resided in New Jersey for over twenty-five years. Jerolemon was the daughter of the late Gaspar and Rosalie Balsamo Romano and was predeceased by her husband, Frank, and her beloved daughter, Rosalie Pape. Jerolemon is survived by her beloved daughter, Concetta Armocida, with whom she resided, her son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Brena Armocida, and her son-in-law, Gene Pape. She was the proud grandmother of seven grandchildren and great-grandmother of six great- grandchildren. Jerolemon excelled in everything she undertook. Her family enjoyed the gourmet meals that she prepared during the holidays especially the birthday cakes, cookies, doughnuts, and Italian delights which were made to perfection. Her sewing skills were something to behold. She had a unique ability to create a wide variety of Halloween costumes that were frequently requested by her children and grand-children. The knitted blankets, creative dresses, and stuffed animals were works of art that were appreciated and cherished by her family and friends. Jerolemon, in her younger years, was employed as a seamstress. True to her spirit, she utilized her high school education and job specific courses to work in a bank’s accounting department. Her smile and sense of humor were contagious. She loved her family, church, and life, and her character served as beacon of light to those who knew her. Heaven’s gates have opened wide to accept Jerolemon’s kind and loving soul!
