She worked as a transportation employee at NEPA Easter Seals and also as an accountant for her husband Don’s home business. Jean later retired from St. Mary’s Villa after serving 35 years as Dietary Aid. After her retirement she volunteered for Visiting Nurse Association Hospice and Home Health of Lackawanna County. She is survived by her children, Sally Roberts and husband Tom; Don Wirth and companion Kathy Gross; Jerry Wirth and wife Shelley; Amy Janiszewski and husband JR; and Clint Wirth, five grandchildren, Scott, Joshua, Jeremiah, Jacob and Aaliyah and nine great-grandchildren, Adrian, Jordan, Alamea (Alexis), Taylor, Madison, Joseph, Kylie, Simon and Zebulon as well as several nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her very dear friend of many years, Don Davis. Jean loved spending time with her family and you could always find her reading a good book. She enjoyed traveling and was able to experience many amazing places while visiting Jerry and Shelley and their family. Her best friend and caregiver was her son Clint, who did so much for her over the years. She and the entire family appreciate him so much. The family would like to extend special thanks to the staff of St. Mary’s Villa for the extraordinary care that they provided to Jean and the compassion and patience that they showed to the entire family. They were all truly the front-line heroes who never missed a beat over the past few months of uncertainty. Thanks also, to the staff of Geisinger CMC, who showed her comfort and care when her family was unable to be with her. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made in Jean’s memory to St. Mary’s Villa, 516 St. Mary’s Villa Road, Elmhurst Township, PA 18444 to aid in the enrichment of residents’ lives by increasing activities and purchasing equipment. Arrangements are entrusted to Duffy and Snowdon Funeral Home, Moscow, PA. A celebration of Jean’s life will be held at a later date.
