Renee Lyons

Renee Lyons (nee’ Nolan) passed away on Friday, February 10, 2017, at the age of 87. A lifelong resident of Jersey City, Renee was the penultimate example of a professional nurse.  A graduate of the Jersey City Medical Center School of Nursing, she worked at Jersey City Medical Center, Christ Hospital and spent the majority of her career as head floor nurse at the Lutheran Nursing Home in Jersey City. Every person who was lucky enough to know her called her Saint Renee.

Renee was the beloved wife of the late Jeremiah (Ret. Sgt, JCPD); devoted mother of Kevin Lyons, Maureen Lyons and her husband Tony Romano and the late Michael Lyons; beloved grandmother of her cherished granddaughter Sabrina: dearest sister of Msgr. Walter Nolan: loving aunt of Mary, Edward, Robert, Paul and Deirdre.  Renee's love and dedication to her two handicapped children was a thing of beauty and an inspiration.

Visitation will be at McLaughlin Funeral Home on Monday, February 13, 2017, from 2:00 to 4:00 and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Family and friends are invited to assemble at the funeral home on Tuesday at 9:00 a.m.  Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Paul of the Cross Church at 10:00 a.m.  Interment will follow in Holy Cross Cemetery, North Arlington, NJ

Walt, Maureen,Kevin and Tony, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Renee cared for special people all of her life and we know now that God is taking special care of her. You all learned love and compassion from her and now share that with the many people whose lives you touch. Renee truly brought the light of life to many for whom it was a distant glimmer and she continues to do so through you.

Aunt Renee was one of the most wonderful people I have know in my life. When I was child she always made me feel loved and cared for. She was a light in the darkness.
Edward Cardini
Walter, Maureen, Kevin and Tony, Only meeting Renee a few times, momentarily, my knowledge of her heroism in her life is from you Walter, and I want to share with you all the loss you feel but the enormous pride you have in being so close to her. What joy must be hers, now and her joy is your greatest comfort. Mildred Coglianese
