Former Belle Mead Resident
Jeanne Carole Powick, 81, died on February 26, 2023, at Crest Haven Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Cape May Courthouse.
Jeanne was the third child of Fred and Clara Krizan and entered the world on August 24, 1941 in Niagara Falls, NY. She graduated from Niagara Falls High School in 1959 and went on to study education at the State College of New York at Fredonia where she graduated with a bachelor's degree.
She married Vincent James D'Amelio Jr. in 1963 and moved to King of Prussia, PA in 1964. There she taught elementary education at the Upper Merion School District. Later they moved to Freehold, New Jersey in 1969. During their time at Freehold, Jeanne had her two sons Vincent James and Marc Fredrick.
In 1975, they moved to Belle Mead. Jeanne graduated in 1981 with a Masters of Business Administration from Rutgers. She then went into a successful business career working for AT&T. She stayed with the company as a business analyst and senior manager until 1998. Throughout her career, she traveled all over the world implementing advanced business programs and joint ventures for the company. Jeanne and Vincent would later separate and remain friends for the rest of her life.
In 1992, Jeanne would remarry Edward Henry Powick. They lived in Northern Virginia and finally retired to Cape May in 1998. Jeanne felt strongly about the ties of family and friendship and surrounded herself with them in their home. She was active at Cape May Lutheran Church serving on the church council, member of the Federation of Democratic Women of Cape May County, and the Democratic Party of New Jersey (and even ran for city council in Cape May).
She loved the beach, cooking, traveling, and photography. She also was a self-taught painter and created many masterpieces featuring scenes of Cape May, the beach, and flowers. These are wonderful reminders of her lasting legacy for all who knew her.
She is survived by her husband Edward Powick of 30 years of North Cape May; her two sons, Vincent D'Amelio (Victoria) of Newark, CA, and Marc D'Amelio (Marcia) of Windermere, FL; two stepchildren, Steve Powick of Flemington, Kim Hammond (Paul) of Highland Park; her brother Ferdinand Krizan Jr (Denise) of Franklinville, NY; two grandchildren, Angela and Vincent D'Amelio; six stepgrandchildren William, Maggie and James Powick, and Matea, Ian, and Johanna Hammond.
