1956 - 2021
Janine Dhalla passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family, on November 7th 2021, after a hard-fought battle with Pancreatic Cancer. She was 65 years old. Born in Beacon, NY on August 17th 1956, she was the daughter of the late Louis and Emily (Weinsheimer) Gervais. She worked hard throughout her life to provide for her family. She enjoyed many hobbies, especially scavenger hunts with her grandson. Janine raised her three children in Wappingers Falls, NY, however, she was a mother-figure to many others, often referred to as “Momma Dukes.”
She is survived by her three children, Zarah Dhalla (Jeff Moro) of Rhinebeck, Shafic Dhalla (Diana Edwards-Dhalla) of Fishkill, Trevor Dhalla (Serena Liccardi) and her greatest gift of all, her much beloved grandson, Landon Dhalla of Wappingers Falls. In addition to her children, she is survived by her siblings Denise Paolilli, Marc Gervais, Lisa Gervais, Andrea Gervais and sister-in-law Jeanette Chang, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Her brother Peter Chang of Texas, cousinEthel Mae of Alabama, and nephew Deion Snell of North Carolina, also predeceased her.
Janine was one of a kind, she loved all and was loved by all. She has always done for others, even if it meant she went without. There is no way to illustrate Janine, she was an Angel on Earth, and she has now gained her wings. She had an affect on so many in Dutchess County and she will forever be missed. Let us live in her spirit.
