In Loving Memory

posted 12/18/2020

It is with great sadness to announce the passing of New Jersey Ballet's beloved bookkeeper, Deborah "Debbie" Cronk.

Debbie was employed by New Jersey Ballet for nearly a decade and was loved by all who crossed her path. She and her dog Smokey quickly became part of the team and we looked forward to seeing them at the office every day. She was a beautiful person, inside and out. She was kind, stylish, thoughtful, hardworking and cared deeply for everyone at New Jersey Ballet. It was very easy to have a conversation with her and she welcomed everyone into her office, even if just to chat.

Debbie had a passion for ballet and truly appreciated the work and grace involved with the art form. She was fascinated by the work behind the scenes and loved being part of the organization. She would even bring her grandson, Julian to watch some of the company run-thrus before a performance.

Debbie is survived by her daughter, Jessica, son, Brian and grandson, Julian.

Words cannot express how profoundly missed Debbie will be at New Jersey Ballet.
