Sidonia Bashore, 68, of Neptune entered into eternal life on Thursday, May 19, 2016.
Wife of the late Charles Bashore, Sidonia is survived by her daughter, Christine Porter and her husband, Adrian, daughter Kimberlee Gerardis; her mother, Eleanor Cronin; her sister, Janie Reinertsen and her husband, Russell; her sister Marian Meling and her husband, Knut; and her beloved grandchildren, Kelly, Jack and Emily; her nieces; Julie, Lilli, Michelle and Allyson; and her nephew, Thomas.
Sidonia was born in Tarrytown, New York on February 22, 1948, daughter of Eleanor and the late, Thomas Cronin. She was raised in Cresskill, New Jersey, where she graduated from High School in 1965.
She attended Saint Thomas Aquinas College in New York, where she received a degree in English language and teaching. Although Sidonia taught, she eventually spent the majority of her career working as a technical language specialist. She was a gifted consultant with an exceptional analytical perspective on the English language.
Sidonia loved to spend time with her grandchildren. She was an active person - she loved the beach and spending time on the boat with Charlie and their beloved dog, Skipper.
Sidonia was a wonderful person and she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. We thank Sidonia for her wise view on life, her honesty and everlasting compassion.
