Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Janet Lucas Jasuta, 92, a longtime Moosic resident, died Monday at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton.

Born Feb. 15, 1931, and raised in Moosic, Janet was the daughter of the late Andrew and Mary Mashurak Lucas. A graduate of the former Moosic High School, she soon began raising a family of two beloved sons. Her love would often be expressed through food, making sure her family and friends and her children’s friends were welcomed and fed. It may not be a coincidence that her love for cooking and baking led her to a longtime position as pizza baker at Revello’s Pizza before retiring as a baker for Salerno’s Cafe, both in Old Forge. She was a member of St. Nicholas of Myra Byzantine Catholic Church in Old Forge where she had been a faithful parishioner for most of her life.

Janet would never pass up an opportunity to shop (her favorite hobby) and her most treasured tradition was hosting family gatherings. She was truly in her glory when she hosted Thanksgivings at her house with all her grandchildren. Very proud of the family she leaves behind, she will never be forgotten through her legacy.

She is survived by her adored son, Leonard Jasuta Jr., of Delray Beach, Fla.; grandchildren, Stephanie Kellison, Jacquelyn Jasuta, Victoria Jasuta, Kyle Jasuta and Lian Jasuta; her daughter-in-law, Kimberly (Manley) Jasuta; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her son, Robert Jasuta, on Oct. 8, 2012. The last of the nine Lucas siblings, she was also preceded in death by her brothers, John, Michael, Andrew and Arthur Lucas; and her sisters, Mary Francis, Anna White, Irene Furey and Helen Wood.

The funeral will be Saturday at 9:15 a.m. from the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge, with a 10 a.m. Office of Christian Burial at St. Nicholas of Myra Byzantine Catholic Church, to be celebrated by the Rev. Eduard Shestak, pastor. Burial will follow in the parish cemetery.

Family and friends may pay their respects Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the funeral home.
