Gloria (Bondaroff) Janofsky, 87, of Sandy Hook, beloved wife of the late Harry Janofsky, died peacefully April 24, surrounded by her family. She was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., April 30, 1926.
Mrs Janofsky always looked forward to her Mah Jongg games, along with knitting, and especially making her commercials for the Janofsky family-owned Quality Gem Jewelers in Bethel. After all, she was the “Queen of Quality Gem.”
She will be sadly missed by her three sons and their wives, Gerald and Lorraine Janofsky of Shelton, Dennis and Doris Janofsky of Bethel, and Robert and Michele Janofsky of Brookfield; her six grandchildren, Jill Whitman and her husband, Dave, Julie Janofsky, David Janofsky and his fiancée, Lauren Trohalis, Kevin, Jeffrey, and Nicholas Janofsky; and two great-grandchildren, Lucy and Vicky.
A graveside service will take place Monday, April 28, at noon, at the United Jewish Center Cemetery, Grays Bridge Road, Brookfield, with Rabbi Solomon Acrish officiating.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Bethel Visiting Nurse Association, 70 Stony Hill Road, Bethel CT 06801 or to Temple Beth Elohim, 31 Mt Ebo Road North, Brewster NY 10509.
