Jean R. SedenskyFebruary 17, 1932 ~ November 30, 2017 (age 85)
SEDENSKY Jean Robstock Sedensky, 85, of Trumbull, formerly of Bridgeport, beloved wife of 50 years to the late Stephen J. Sedensky, Jr. passed away peacefully in her sleep early Thursday morning, November 30, 2017. Jeannie was born in Bridgeport on February 17, 1932, the daughter of the late John and Katherine (Wilson) Robstock. She graduated from St. Augustine's School, Bassick High School and Teachers College of Connecticut (now Central Connecticut State University). After receiving her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, Jeannie returned to Bridgeport and taught second grade at Black Rock School for several years before leaving to raise her family with her husband Steve. When her youngest child went off to college, she returned to the classroom as a teacher’s aide in the Bridgeport school system, retiring at the age of 74.
Jeannie’s main love was her family. She was a constant source of love, comfort and support for her husband, children and grandchildren. From family parties at holidays, birthdays and weddings, to days and vacations at the beach, skiing or elsewhere to school and sporting events, Jeannie and Steve wove a wonderful life together. Besides her husband, her two sisters Catherine Greenwood and Sally Shea were her best friends. She was also blessed with many good friends from her childhood and those she met while raising her family in the Black Rock section of Bridgeport.
Jeannie was a devout Roman Catholic and a parishioner at different phases of her life at Saint Augustine’s and Saint Ann’s in Bridgeport and Saint Stephen’s in Trumbull. She had an unwavering faith in God which she passed on to her children and grandchildren.
