Janet Mullarkey

Passed away on September 10, 2018

Janet Mullarkey, 73, of Brooklyn, New York, passed away suddenly on Monday, September 10, 2018. She was born in Brooklyn, but spent much of her early life in Queens, New York. Janet graduated from Hunter College and worked for the Social Security Administration for 40 years. It was through friends at work that she met her husband, Brian. They were happily married for over 35 years and together raised their daughter, Sarah.

Janet was a uniquely loving and brilliant woman, whose warmth and ready smile touched all who knew her. She was devoted to her family and to her friends, whom she considered part of her family. She especially enjoyed bringing loved ones together with a home-cooked meal and a good glass of wine. Janet will be remembered for making all feel welcome and for always lending a compassionate ear to a friend in need.

She will be dearly missed by her husband, Brian, her daughter, Sarah, and her sister, Susan, and will forever be in the hearts of her family and many friends. Funeral services will be held at Riverside Memorial in New York on Thursday, September 13, at 11:30 in the morning. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the many causes she supported.
