Jean Marie Rossetti, 91, a longtime resident of the Hill Section of Scranton died Sunday evening. She was the widow of Gilbert J. Rossetti, who died September 21, 1976.
Jean was the daughter of the late Thomas Condeelis and Edna McKean Condeelis. A graduate of Scranton Technical High School and Scranton Business School, she was employed as a secretary at Dr. Sandy Furey’s office and also served as a receptionist at Moses Taylor Hospital.
Jean was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Elks Club of Scranton, Lackawanna Ladies Club, and the Junior Jaycees, and was co-foundress of the Hemodialysis Patients’ Association of Northeastern Pennsylvania. She was actively involved with fundraising and support of impoverished children in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Yonkers in New York State. Jean felt it primary and necessary to care for the poor and those in need. She was generous with her time as well as her financial support.
Always conscious of being proper, soft spoken and impeccably attired, Jean was a great supporter of the arts. She actively supported and appreciated the Metropolitan Opera, Dicapo Opera Theatre and many musicians, who would perform in her home for the public to enjoy. Jean appreciated the necessity of understanding the effects of history upon us presently and how it formed us. She was a member of the Lackawanna Historical Society and enjoyed antiques, collectibles and art objects.
She is survived by two sons, Rev. Mark T. Rossetti, New York, NY and Gilbert J. Rossetti, Jr., and wife Nancy, Forest City, two grandsons, Gilbert J. Rossetti and wife, Lycett, Boston, MA, and Gregory Rossetti of Dunmore.
The family would like to thank the Garcia Family: Dagoberto, Martha, Anna, Fernando, Alvaro, Alex and Aracely, Eric Raebel, the Moctezuma Family: Rosa, Paula, Angie and husband, Frank, and the staff of Compassionate Care Hospice for the tremendous care given to Jean throughout her illness. Special gratitude is extended to Bishop James C. Timlin, Bishop Emeritus of Scranton.
Jean will be waked in the main foyer of the family home, 1005 Vine Street, Scranton. Relatives and friends may pay their respects Tuesday beginning at noon until Wednesday at noon. At 7:00PM, a rosary service will be offered in Spanish and a memorial concert will be performed. Vigil will be celebrated in the family’s chapel at 8:15PM. Arrangements are under the care of the the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 N. Main Avenue, Scranton. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Jean’s memory to the Lackawanna Historical Society, 232 Monroe Avenue, Scranton, PA 18510.
