Jeanette Zaitchick passed away peacefully on March 20, at the age of 95. “Moom,” as she was lovingly called by the family, was the daughter of Max and Sarah Katz. The second of ten children, she was a woman of boundless energy. In her early years she was the caretaker of her younger siblings. Later in life she oversaw the care of her elderly mother. She raised four children and reveled in her roles of wife and mother with a relentless and contagious optimism. When her marriage ended after 25 years, she went back to school and became an adored and valued executive secretary for 20 years at Hanscom Air Force base. She loved music, traveling, exercising and telling funny stories. Most of all, however, she loved her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Even after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease some years ago, she maintained a kind and upbeat demeanor, just happy to experience each day. She was lovingly cared for in the last years of her life at the Brudnick Center for Living in Peabody. She will be greatly missed by her children Mark and Connie Zaitchik of Gloucester, Mass., Michael and Melissa Zaitchik of Groton Ct., Matt and Nancy Zaitchik of North Providence, RI, Michele and James King of Grantham, NH, 8 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren. Services and memorial week will be private. A public memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to the Alzheimer's Association.

Private Condolence

Please accept my deepest condolences. Jeanette, at one time, lived near my aunt at their assisted living facility. I visited weekly, and was always buoyed by Jeanette’s upbeat spirit. I was so impressed with her vitality. As she became more forgetful, it was my pleasure to help her “find her way.” Take comfort knowing she has truly found her way home. Peace be with you. Julie Mills ( niece of Joan Needham, whom we lost last July)
