Maryellen Jordan

location-icon

Wallingford, CT

Maryellen Jordan, 63, beloved wife of Dennis Jordan, passed away on Thursday, February 8, 2024 at her home. Born in Derby on April 24, 1960, she was the daughter of the late Joseph & Florence (Olenchuk) CegelkaMaryellen, affectionately known as “Mar” to her friends and family, had a warm-hearted personality. She possessed the kindest soul, always putting others needs before her own. She had a remarkable ability to connect with people, share herself and evoke the same spirit of love in each person she knew. Maryellen grew up in Seymour next door to her “sister” Leslie, with whom she shared a special bond. She worked various jobs in her young life until she settled into her role as loving wife, homemaker, and mother. She was a devoted wife to Dennis, with whom she just celebrated their 37th wedding anniversary. She cherished every moment with the man who was her life. She spent many years as a stay at home mom and was her children’s biggest cheerleader. Her words of encouragement, comfort and strength kept us kids in line and gave us something to pass down to our children. She especially loved her role as Oma to her 5 grandkids and her grand-pups. She was an avid reader of suspense thrillers and loved a good WWE wrestling match. She deeply loved her animals she owned throughout her life; her dogs King, Tye and Harley and her kitties, CC, Zo, Annie and Max. She loved music and could occasionally be caught busting a move should the mood strike her. She enjoyed baking, especially when it was time to make cookie trays for neighbors and loved ones. She loved flowers and plants but did not possess the greenest of thumbs. Her love of flowers blossomed into a passion of making (faux) floral arrangements that she proudly displayed in her home.She was a stubborn force to be reckoned with. An unrelenting advocate for being who you are and doing what you want. There is so much more that could be said, but in the end, she made our world brighter. Most of all, she loved and cherished her family and friends. Her departure comes as a great shock and a deep wound, and it is gravely felt by her entire family. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.In addition to her husband, Dennis, Maryellen is survived by her children and their spouses, Rachel & Robert Berry of Wallingford, Stephanie & Manny Rosa of Beacon Falls and Ryan and Tamorria Jordan of Austin, TX; her cherished grandchildren, Skylar Gavin, Nicholas Berry, Evan Rosa, Brayden Rosa and Gavin Rosa; her grandpups, Niro and Daydream; her brother and sister-in-law, Joseph & Sue Cegelka of Waterbury; as well as numerous extended family members and beloved friends. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, Richard Cegelka. Her family will receive relatives and friends in The Wallingford Funeral Home, 809 North Main St. Ext., on Tuesday, February 13th from 4:00 – 6:00pm. A memorial service and celebration of her life will begin at 6:00pm. www.wallingfordfh.com

Deborah Treichel Chicoski

Mar 26, 1957 - Jan 07, 2024

location-icon

Wallingford, CT

We mourn the passing of Deborah "Debbie" Treichel Chicoski, who left us on January 7, 2024, after a battle with bile duct cancer. Born on March 26, 1957, Debbie lived a life marked by love, generosity, and at times, a healthy stubbornness. Over her lifetime, she amassed an abundant amount of fun, love, and respect from all who really knew her. Debbie was a pillar of strength and devotion for her family, survived by her sons, Christopher Yerkes and Matt Yerkes, as well as her daughter-in-law, Kat Hall. Her life partner, Ken Smoil, stood by her side, sharing in both her many joys and challenges. Her family served as her life's prime focus, and she took immense pride in raising her two boys, helping to shape them into fine gentlemen with much of her kindness, wisdom, and life lessons. The most profound of these lessons was treating others with love and respect - a principle that Debbie herself lived by every day. In addition to her devotion to her family, Debbie was a friend like no other. Her warmth, unwavering support, and generous spirit made her an indispensable part of many lives. Accessible, loving, and always ready to lend a hand, she epitomized the very essence of friendship. Her legacy of extreme kindness and generosity will continue to live on through the countless hearts she has touched. Debbie had a creative flair, evident in her beautiful, counted cross-stitching art, a hobby that brought both beauty and relaxation into her life. She shared a love for the TV sitcom "Frasier" with her son Chris and daughter-in-law Kat, often enjoying laughter-filled evenings together. Her passion for Disney World was infectious; she adored going there to experience what she called “The Magic” with her family and friends, spreading joy and creating lasting memories. Debbie was also an exceptional grandmother to her granddogs Henry, Peppa, and Pancho. These furry companions seemed to love their "Gingy" more than their real parents, a testament to Debbie's loving and nurturing spirit. As a tribute to Debbie's memory, we kindly ask that you consider making a contribution to "The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation" instead of sending flowers. You can make your donations at or directly or through Everloved at . We remember Debbie today not with sorrow, but with appreciation for her generous heart, her unassuming love, and her immense capacity for kindness. Her absence will be deeply felt, but her influence will remain, a testament to a life beautifully lived. To say she will be missed is an understatement; the void left by her passing can never be filled. However, we will find comfort in her memories and the love she has left behind.
