Obituary for Lillian J. Buirkle

Lillian J.  Buirkle
Lillian passed away peacefully in the early morning, December 29th 2018 at her home of 20 years in Lavallette, NJ. She is survived by her husband and lifelong partner of over 37 years Joseph Palinsky, her three children; Erik K. Dhuy, Christine A. Greenough and Ronald J. Dhuy Jr., she also leaves 8 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren with two more along the way.
Lillian, originally from Park Ridge, NJ, was the daughter of Gus and Ann Buirkle. As owners of one of the first Auto Dealerships in town as well, Gus helped found and assisted the first ambulance squad in her home town, with generations going back from Jersey City to the Virginia colony of 1610. Lillian continued her father’s civic responsibility by volunteering her time at Lavallette Volunteer First Aid Squad as an EMT. During her decade plus time of service, she became a life member in the community that she and generations of family members have spent in this small community on the bay.
After Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA., Lillian became a scientific pioneer as a senior scientist who helped develop major breakthroughs for a large pharmaceutical corporation over a career begun in the 60’s.While having a large family and successful career that spanned decades, she also had time to be editor of Michigan’s State Button Society and competed in local, state and national button societies covering much of the eastern U.S.
Not only will she be indelibly remembered and inconsolably missed by those above, she will be equally remembered by sisters Joan and Sue, brother Don, their families and an extended family and a network of friends too large and long to be stated in this notice.
Viewing will be held at the Timothy E. Ryan Home for Funerals, 706 Grand Central Ave., Lavallette, NJ, 08735 on Friday January 4th from 4:00PM-7:00PM, with Services to be held also at the funeral home at 10:00AM, Saturday, January 5th, with interment at George Washington Cemetery, Paramus, NJ. Directions will be provided. In lieu of flowers donations in Lillian’s name to the Lavallette Volunteer First Aid Squad are appreciated.
