Obituary for Sophia N. Switalski

We lost our Matriarch today, August 25, 2019. Sophia N. Switalski was a Centenarian who was born on November 11, 1915 in Bayonne, NJ. She resided at Gwynedd Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, a caring community, located in Lansdale. Sophia was President of its Resident Advisory Council. Originally from Bayonne and Union, NJ, Sophia nourished us with family history, lavish holiday meals, authentic polish recipes, and love.
Sophia was married to Adam Switalski for only 13 years before he passed away. Despite her loss, she took great pride in knowing that she helped educate three children. She worked for 30 years in a Bayonne supermarket and was responsible for many tasks. She gave high school students the opportunity to learn the registers, and was responsible for tallying the store’s coupons.
Her children are Marcy married to Bob Hellinger of Corpus Christi, TX; Thomas Adam married to Joyce of Spring House, PA, and Helene who married Joe Farrell, who is recently deceased. They resided in Union, NJ. Sophia had 5 grandchildren: Brian Hellinger, TX; Jim Hellinger, TX; Kristen Anbari, CT; T. Adam Switalski, MT; and Maureen Jordan, CA. She also had 7 great-grandchildren: Hunter and Camryn Hellinger; Mateo Hellinger; Katie and Austin Anbari; Sophie and Lilian Switalski.
Sophia cherished her immediate family and relatives. She enjoyed cooking, crocheting, arts and crafts, music, playing Canasta and Bridge.
