Jo Ann G. Gonsar-Scull
Jo Ann G. Gonsar-Scull, 74, of Greenville, S.C.

Loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend to many, Jo Ann G. (Michetti) Gonsar-Scull, 74, a resident of Taylors, South Carolina, died at home surrounded by family on Saturday, October 5, 2019, of multiple myeloma.

She was born at Geisinger Medical Center on September 8, 1945, a daughter of the late Clara E. (Reitz) Michetti and Joseph C. Michetti, Sr. She was married to the late Terry L. Gonsar in 1967, who preceded her in death in 1979, and married Carl K. Scull in 1997.

She was a graduate of the Trevorton High School Class of 1963, received a Nursing Degree from Geisinger Medical Center School of Nursing in 1966, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Mansfield University in 1971, and a Master of Science Degree in Education from Bloomsburg University in 1985. She was a licensed R.N. in Pennsylvania and South Carolina, and became a school nurse and nursing coordinator for the Shamokin Area, Midd-West, Shikellamy, and Greenville County School Districts prior to working as a pediatric nurse at A Child's Haven clinic in Greenville, where she worked until her retirement.

Among her many gifts and talents was her constant caring, kindness, education and ministry to others, for which she will be remembered. Always one to remain busy and continue learning, she enjoyed nature and gardening which culminated in a Master Gardener certification. Jo Ann treasured travel with family and friends, including numerous cruises with her husband and family members. She participated in book clubs with friends, served as a Stephen Minister and was a recent graduate of Education for Ministry (EfM), all of which brought her great joy and fulfillment.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by a daughter, Kristin A. Gonsar of San Francisco, California (Bennett Shen); a son, Scott D. Gonsar of Seattle, Washington (ShaiLee Gonsar); three grandchildren Ian L. Shen, Elliott B. Gonsar and Riley Brahs; a brother, Joseph C. Michetti, Jr. (Ruby Michetti); a brother-in-law Dale W. Gonsar (Joyce Gonsar); a nephew Antonio Michetti (Jane) and nieces Jennifer D'Lima (Neil), Rosalynda Crichton (Stuart), Angelina Michetti (Marc Scott), Maria Malfara (Damien), Yolanda Michetti (Darren Stonecypher) and their families; two step-sons Daniel Scull and Roger Scull; along with many extended family and friends from her Pennsylvania and Greenville communities, all of whom will miss her deeply. She was preceded in death by a brother, David A. Michetti.

A memorial service was held at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Greenville, SC, where Jo Ann was an active and beloved member.
A funeral service will be held Saturday, November 30, 2019, at 10:00 A.M. at the United Lutheran Church, 167 Seven Points Road, Sunbury, Pa., followed by interment in Northumberland Memorial Park, 2956 State Route 61, Stonington, PA.

The family is grateful to her many extended family, friends, medical providers, caregivers, and the St. Peter's community for her care and companionship throughout the years.
