Obituary of Aline Lenaz

Aline Lenaz, of Princeton died Thursday, September 28, 2017 at the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro surrounded by her loving family.

Aline earned a Bachelor of Architecture and Masters of Science in City Planning from Pratt Institute, NY. Her various professional endeavors involved planning for HUD-Philadelphia, NJHMFA and Princeton University-Office of Physical Planning. At the University she managed the development of Forbes College, Wu Hall, Prospect House Renovation, various student housing projects, and handicap accessibility studies.
Sparked by her creative spirit, Aline imagined and realized her dream to start a mystery bookshop, the Cloak & Dagger, as an encore career. She ran the Princeton, NJ bookshop with her husband Gerald receiving several professional accolades from Mystery Author organizations for programs advancing the mystery writing genre.
She will be fondly remembered by her friends, relatives and anyone who had the pleasure to know her.  She was a “good-time” mom always planning parties, events and celebrations and was generous with her love and “can-do/take on the world” attitude.


Daughter of the late Walter and Martha (Salden) Sadowski-Kachuba, she is survived by her husband Gerald C. Lenaz and her son Jerry W. Lenaz.

Friends may call on Monday, October 2, 2017, from 9:30 until 10:30 am at the funeral home. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 11:00 AM Monday, October 2, 2017 at St. Paul’s Church, 216 Nassau St., Princeton.
