Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Mary Jackson, 58, of Wyoming, died Thursday evening at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. She was preceded in death by her husband of six years, Oliver Jackson, who died June 9, 2005.

Born June 24, 1965, in Newark, N,J,, daughter of the late Harry and Christina Milne Wands, Mary was employed by Fugi Films at Walmart Photo Center, prior to her illness.

A loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Mary enjoyed the scenery while riding on the back of a motorcycle. Mary was not one to sit still for a long period of time. Whether shopping, riding or doing something for others, Mary was always on the go. A very generous spirit, Mary volunteered her time for Valley with a Heart. Gone way too soon, Mary will be remembered always by all who knew and loved her.

Surviving are her children, Scott Wands and wife, Elizabeth, Bloomingdale, Ga.; Meaghan Goode, Old Forge; Harley Jackson, Wyoming; and Jaqueline Jackson, Dupont; grandchildren, Ingrid, Justin and Stephen Wands; siblings, Cathi Denham, Pooler, Ga.; Sharon Wands, Iselin, N.J.; and Kenneth Wands, Savannah, Ga.; several nieces and nephews; and her loving furever faithful feline friend, Medusa.

Her former husband, Thomas Goode, preceded her in death.

A Celebration of Mary’s Life will be held Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Banks – a Waterfront Venue, 304 Kennedy Blvd., Pittston, to conclude with services by the Rev. Michael Shambora, officiating.

Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge.
