Yolonda Marie Iszczyk
Yolonda Marie Iszczyk (Ruiz), age 49, ended
her eight-year battle with cancer on April 24th
at home with her loving family. She is survived
by her children, Gracey Delilah and Quinn
Myles, and her husband, Bart.
Yolonda, daughter of Linda DiDonato (William Zevlas) and
stepdaughter of the late, Joseph Beebe, was born in East New
York, Brooklyn, and raised in Bayonne. She is also survived
by her sister, Desirée Beebe, cherished aunt, Gail Pons
(DiDonato) and many adoring aunts, uncles, cousins, and
lifelong Bayonne friends.
Yolonda was a graduate of Henry E. Harris, Bayonne High
School, and New Jersey City University where she received
her bachelor’s degree in Education. She enjoyed shaping
young minds teaching in Jersey City and Bayonne.
While the courageous fight with her illness prevented her
from being back in the classroom, she derived her greatest
pleasure and life’s accomplishment in her family and being
home with her children. Despite multiple rounds of chemo and
immuno-therapies, she was always at the ready to guide in
homework, volunteer as class mother at All Saint’s Academy
(alongside friend, Jennifer Mulcahy), cheer from the sidelines
for BYSA Lightning, put the most special touches on any
holiday or celebration, or plan a family vacation at the beach.
Her love for her children and family was paramount and as
beautiful and infectious as her smile.
A celebration of life memorial will be held at
a later date when we are able to come together.
Friends and family are encouraged to share
their condolences and favorite memories of
Yolonda on her Facebook page
A gofundme site has been created to establish a trust to
secure her children’s future. Bart and the entire Iszczyk
family are grateful for the life, love, laughter and your
