Jean Selinger Wall, 88, Poughkeepsie Resident

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – Jean Selinger Wall, formerly of Poughkeepsie, died Wednesday, April 20. She was 88.

She was born in Poland and remained in Europe until after World War II, when she and and her husband, Carl, moved to Hartford, Conn. She and her husband were Holocaust survivors who sought to make a new life in America and raise their children in freedom. The family moved to Poughkeepsie, where they lived for 47 years and where they found a welcoming home of new friends who became like family. She missed them greatly after her move to Peabody, Mass. in 2011.

She is survived by her children, Adele (Jeff) Ibsen and Alan (Jenifer) Wall; grandchildren, Alison Ibsen (Fred), David Ibsen (Colleen) and Aliza Wall; two great-grandchildren, Madeleine and Alexandra; her brother, Michael Selinger and sister-in-law, Jean, in Connecticut; a sister-in-law in Florida; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her daughter, Helene, in 1975; and her husband, Carl, in 2014.

A service will take place at 11 a.m. Tuesday at Temple Beth-El, 118 S. Grand Ave., Poughkeepsie. Interment will take place at Temple Beth-El Cemetery, Route 44, Poughkeepsie.
