Obituary

Sadly, Jean G. Wolfe, 95, entered into eternal rest June 29th, 2020 surrounded by her loving family.
A lifelong resident of Scranton, she lived in the East Mountain section for the past 68 years.
Born March 29th, 1925 the oldest of three daughters to the late William and K. Sybilla Mattern Gahn. She was a faithful member of the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Scranton.
She was educated in the Scranton School District and graduated Valedictorian of the Scranton Central High School class of January 1943. She was also a graduate of Lackawanna Junior College.
Jean enjoyed her secretarial work having worked at several companies including Acme Fast Freight and The Telephone Answering Exchange.
On October 18th, 1952 Jean married Anthony Wolfe a person she had known most of her life. For the next 56 years they showed their generation what it takes to live a truly fulfilling life; A life of love and family. Tony passed away July 11th, 2008 leaving a message of “A life well lived is a life worth while” for their daughters and subsequently their grandchildren to follow.
Jean enjoyed many hobbies and her exceptional quilting talents garnished several awards. She had an incredible attention to detail in all she did.
Jean is survived by a loving daughter Christine and her husband Dr. William S. Auriemma. Christine would continuously go out of her way to ensure her mother was happy and comfortable. Also surviving is a son-in-law Kenneth Raebel who will forever miss her fairness, humor, wisdom, and unconditional love; eight adoring grandchildren Tyler, Alexandria, Alyssa Auriemma, Megan Cahill and husband Thomas, Kyle, Matt, Adam, and Eric Raebel; two great-grandchildren Caitlin and Jacob Cahill. “A garden of love grows in a grandmother’s heart.” Other survivors are a sister Marion and husband Roy, and two brothers-in-law Harold Bowers and James Wolfe and many nieces and nephews.
In addition, she was preceded in death by a sister Dorothy Bowers; sisters-in-law Shirley and Joan Wolfe; nephew Brian Wolfe; and a loving daughter, Gretchen. Although experiencing unbelievable loss herself, she kept Gretchen’s memory alive by sharing stories and photographs with anyone as only a proud loving mother could.
Thank you to all of Jeans neighbors, past and present for helping her feel truly at home for the past 62 years in the best neighborhood in Scranton. The family would like to thank Dr. Phillip Boccagno, Dr. William S. Auriemma, the staff at Mid Valley Health Care Center, especially her granddaughter Allie Auriemma. Allie you unselfishly placed your “Grammie” into you caring sympathetic hands and helped lead her to her final destination “home.” Your extraordinary care of this special woman will never be forgotten.
Funeral services will be held Tuesday at 10 am in the Miller Bean Funeral Home Inc., 436 Cedar Ave. Scranton. Interment Cathedral Cemetery. Friends and family may pay their respects Monday from 5-7 pm. Attendees for the services are kindly asked to adhere to the CDC social distancing guidelines and a mask will be required. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made in Jean’s name to the memorial fund of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 1000 Taylor Ave. Scranton, PA 18510.

Your memorial tribute is lovely- as lovely as Jean was- I so enjoyed time working with her and quilting with her- she very kindly allowed me to use a sewing machine as she took delicate stitches- one by one- by hand. I know Tony and Gretch were waiting patiently for her and had a lovely place for her to look down on the family. Praying for peace for the whole family. Lynne E.T.
