She was also preceded in death by brothers, Arthur, Kenneth, Barry, Richard and Russell Wickizer, Jr.
Her family would like to thank Jean’s dear neighbors, Kate and MaryAnn, for years of their amazing support, kindness and friendship.
Blessing Services have been scheduled for Saturday at 10:00AM at Chapel Lawn Memorial Park, 4115 Memorial Hwy, Dallas, by Rev. Peter Kurtz, Pastor of the Good Shepard Church in Wilkes Barre.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Jean’s name to the Greater Wilkes Barre Association for the Blind, 1825 Wyoming Ave., Exeter, PA., 18643. Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 N. Main Street in Old Forge.
