Jean was preceded in death by her daughter, Elizabeth "Betty Ann" Downs; and five brothers, John, Joe, Tony, Frank and Al.

A viewing will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at St. Monica's Church, Market Street, Sunbury, where funeral services and Catholic Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Following will be a graveside service in Orchard Hills Cemetery and Memorial Park.
