Watervliet, NY

WATERVLIET - Jeanne (Kewley) Pulenskey passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 14, 2024 at home with her entire family by her side. She was 89 years old. Jeanne was born in Troy, New York on December 15, 1934 and was Salutatorian of Lansingburgh High School’s class of 1952. After high school, she became employed as an executive secretary at Behr-Manning Company in Watervliet, where she met her future husband, Arthur J. Pulenskey. They married in 1958, settled in Watervliet, and had one child, Debra L. Pulenskey. When Debbie was born, Jeanne “retired” from working to devote all her @me to raising her daughter. Jeanne was always an avid sports fan and family woman, first supporting her nephews, Jim and Bob Kewley, in their athletic endeavors at Troy High School, and then her daughter Debbie’s cheerleading at Watervliet High School. When Debbie married her high school sweetheart, Darrell Drescher, and the grandchildren, Blaine, Aaron and Tory came along, Jeanne’s support and fun increased threefold. Jeanne regularly attended sporting events, concerts, and other school activities, happily cheering on whatever the event might be with true joy and happiness. She even once acted as a co-chaperone for a senior class Christian Brothers Academy Band trip to Walt Disney World. In recent years, she had the pleasure of regularly attending CBA games with her granddaughter-in-law, Kimberly Drescher. When Jeanne’s great-granddaughter, Dolly, was born, Jeanne’s face would light up when Dolly entered the room, just as it did when her beloved Blaine, Aaron and Tory were with her. Jeanne was a life-long member of the Order of the Eastern Star and for a very happy period, a member and Secretary of the Speigletown Elders, where she made many good friends. In her later years, Jeanne especially loved the New York Yankees, ice cream and the family dog, Winston. She would stay up late watching Yankee games whether they were winning or losing by a substantial margin, eating a bowl of her favorite ice cream, with Winston by her side. It was for her the next best thing to activities with her family and close friends. Jeanne was predeceased by her parents, Edward and Gretchen Kewley; her husband, Arthur J. Pulenskey; her brother, John Kewley; and her brother, George Kewley, his wife, Lois and their son, James. She is survived by her daughter, Debbie Drescher and her husband, Darrell; her grandchildren, Tory Drescher, Aaron Drescher, and Blaine Drescher and his wife, Kimberly; her great granddaughter, Dolly Drescher; her beloved pet, Winston; several nieces and nephews, including very special nephew, Bob Kewley, and his wife Colleen; and many special friends, including her second family, the Markham family of West Sand Lake. Jeanne’s life was centered around always loving her family to the best of her ability and all will be eternally grateful for all that she contributed to the lives of those she loved so much. In lieu of flowers, loved ones may send donations in her memory to the Christian Brothers Academy Athletic Program or Music Program, or to the Mohawk Hudson River Humane Society. Visiting hours will be 9:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. at Parker Brothers Memorial Funeral Home at 2013 Broadway, Watervliet, concluding with a service. Interment will be at Memory’s Garden.
