Jean Marie Preble, age 89, passed away on Tuesday, May 5, 2020.

Jean was born in Scranton PA, on March 29, 1931, to the late Alexander and Marie Remshaw.

Jean enjoyed playing cards and dominoes with her friends, dinners and holidays with family, trips to Cancun, cooking, watching Jeopardy and sharing her home with her fur-babies. She was a devoted housewife and mother. She made a wicked lasagna and enjoyed her beer over ice.

She is predeceased by her husband Stanley (2014) and her sister Shirley Hardy. She is survived by her son Steven and his wife Diane, two grandchildren, Nicholas Ruffo and Samantha Lazorchak (Greg) and six great-grandchildren, Zachary, Graham, Jacob, Autumn Rose, Isabella and Andi.
