May 22, 1944 – June 28, 2019
Town of Newburgh, NY formerly of New City, NY

Jean D. Lindenberger, of the Town of Newburgh entered into eternal rest on June 28, 2019 at Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital, Newburgh, NY surrounded by her dear friends and family. She was 75 years old.

The daughter of the late Harry DeGaris and Ruth (Eldridge) DeGaris, Jean was born on May 22, 1944 in San Bernardino, CA.

Jean worked as a Special Education Teaching Assistant at Clarkstown North High School for 20 years. Following retirement, Jean decided to rekindle her passion for art. She enrolled in courses at The Desmond Campus of Mt. St. Mary College in Newburgh and produced beautiful pastel pieces, many of which won prizes in local art shows. These courses also took her on painting trips in Ireland and France. A lifelong learner, Jean took advantage of the wonderful array of courses offered at the Desmond Campus as well.

In addition to her parents, Jean was predeceased by her husband: Gerard F. Lindenberger; her son: Terrence Lindenberger; and her daughter: Irene Lindenberger. She is survived by her daughter-in-law: Kerry Lindenberger of Newburgh, NY; her granddaughter: Hailey Lindenberger; her grandson: Matthew Lindenberger; and her brother: Roger DeGaris of Brooklyn, NY.

Visitation will be held from 12 to 1 p.m. on Friday, July 5th at Quigley-Sullivan Funeral Home, Inc., 337 Hudson Street, Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY. A Chapel Service will be held at 1 p.m. following visitation. Interment will follow at Cedar Hill Cemetery, Middle Hope, NY.

Jean will be missed by us all, especially those who have had the pleasure to spend quality time with her. I know her from studying art with her over the last decade. The art she produced was as beautiful and pure as her soul. She loved her family dearly. I always saw the sparkle in her eyes when she spoke of her grandchildren. She would get a big Santa bag and keep filling it up with all kinds of goodies for the holidays and it gave her such great pleasure. We will especially miss her quirky sense of humor as she always had a smile on her face. Gone too soon but we know she is at peace and in a beautiful place for all eternity with her beloved children. So glad to have known her. Much Love, Ann Marie Silvani
