Bernice Jewusiak Castiglia, almost 96 years old, passed away peacefully after a short illness on September 12, 2015 at Merry Heart Health Care Center in Succasunna, NJ. Bernice was a resident of Merry Heart Assisted Living since 2012. Before moving to Succasunna, her home was in Lyndhurst, NJ where she lived for more than 62 years.
Bernice was married for forty years to her first husband William (Bill) Jewusiak who died in 1979, and was married 25 years to her second husband James Castiglia who died in 2007. Born in Sayreville, NJ in 1920, Bernice was the daughter of the late John and Sophie Woszczyna and was predeceased by all of her sisters Helen Stochel, Jeanette Meyertons, Viola Garboski and Stella Markulic, and both of her brothers, Joseph Woszczyna and Stanley Woszczyna.

Mrs. Castiglia was a self-employed seamstress/tailor, who made clothes, slipcovers and did alterations during her lifetime. She was an amazing cook and baker who assisted at cooking demonstrations at classes held at Bamberger’s Department Store in Newark, NJ during the 1960’s and 1970’s with her husband Bill. Bernice enrolled in driving school when she was 56 years old, and then got her drivers license and first car.
