Cornwall, NY

Jeannine C. Burich of Cornwall, NY entered into eternal rest on October 19, 2020 at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was 78 years old.

The daughter of Joseph and Josephine Citarella, Jeannine was born on December 12, 1941 in the Bronx.

To the family of Jeannine...know that she was an integral part of both family, her friends, and community. To Phil, Sean, and me, Jeannine was more than a neighbor and friend; she was like a mentor, sister, and very much part of our family. We will miss our fun times; the cruises, Golf tournaments,and the reunions near and far.
May she rest knowing how much she is loved.
Please accept our condolences. Love,
Joan Connolly
