FISHKILL – Jeanette Elizabeth (McAuley) Pecorelli, a resident of Fishkill for nearly 20 years, formerly of Florida and the Bronx, passed away at home on Wednesday, August 5, 2020. She was 83.

She was born in Queens on June 28, 1937. For many years, Jeanette worked as a receptionist for Fordham University, retiring in 1990. She was a parishioner of St. Mary, Mother of the Church in Fishkill.

Jeanette’s hobbies included reading, solitaire, and shopping. She enjoyed having her hair and nails styled on a regular basis and was always fond of chocolates & sweets. She had a love for animals and was especially fond of her pets, including her “granddog” Aladdin, as well as her late cat, Benji. She avidly supported charitable organizations such as the Pulmonary Hypertension Association and A.S.P.C.A.

Jeanette will be remembered for her generosity, thoughtfulness, and caring spirit. Not matter what, she always had a smile on her face regardless of any pain she endured.
In 1962, she married Gabriel R. Pecorelli in Queens. Gabriel survives at home in Fishkill.

Additional survivors include her daughter, Jeanne Pecorelli of the Bronx; her son, Anthony Pecorelli of the Bronx; her daughter, Diane Pecorelli of Mahopac; her grandchildren, Anthony Pecorelli, Samantha Pecorelli, Lorenzo Zefi, and Christian Zefi; as well as several nieces, nephews, and many other loving relatives & friends.
Jeanette was predeceased by her parents as well as two sisters, Betty May Ryan and Maureen Bland.
