October 24, 1939 - August 24, 2019
Mary (Maime) G. Jones Kozak, age 79, a guest at Saint Mary’s Villa Nursing Home, Elmhurst Twp., and formerly of Scranton passed away Saturday evening after an illness.
Born on October 24, 1939, and raised in Scranton’s Bellevue section, Mary was the daughter of the late William and Mary (Roche) Jones. She attended West Scranton High School and upon raising her three beloved daughters, she served as a lunch mother within the Scranton School District for over 30 years. Of Roman Catholic faith, she was a longtime member of Nativity of Our Lord Parish before becoming a weekly attendee at St. Peter’s Cathedral after moving to the Mulberry Towers in Scranton.
Mary enjoyed both a good novel and completing crossword puzzles but above all else came her family. Putting her own needs aside to provide for her family, she was a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother and sister who will be dearly missed. Her selfless nature and kind-hearted spirit will never be forgotten.
She is survived by two loving daughters, Debbie Jordan and Mary Klonoski, both of Scranton; two siblings, Daniel Jones and wife Martha of Clarks Summit and Ann Canterbury and husband Ralph of FL.; seven adoring grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
A daughter, Evelyn Ann Kozak; and a son-in-law, Barry Jordan, also preceded her in death.
Her family would like to thank the entire staff of Saint Mary’s Villa for the care and compassion given to Mary throughout her three-month stay.
A blessing service by Frank Rutkowski is scheduled for Friday at 11:00AM in the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton. Interment will follow in Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery, Moosic.
Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Thursday from 4-7:00PM at the funeral home.
