Jean Marion Stonebraker

March 13, 1935 ~ June 10, 2022 (age 87)


Jean Marion Stonebraker, 87, formerly of Johnstown PA, died on June 10, 2022, at Barclay Friends Nursing Facility in West Chester, PA, with family by her side.

She was born in Johnstown on March 13, 1935, to the late Lloyd and Hazel Perkins.

Jean graduated from Johnstown High School in 1953 and was married to the late Samuel Stonebraker Jr.  She is survived by daughter, Tracy, wife of Richard Mattis, and grandson, Sam Mattis of West Chester; son, Jeff Shirey, husband of Colleen Mesaros, of Pittsburgh.

Jean was an executive secretary for Penelec for many years and appeared as “Reddy Kilowatt” several times.  In high school, she played basketball and even modeled a bit while in her 20s.  Her hobbies were bingo, slot machines, horse racing, and clothes shopping, (especially HSN and QVC).  Dancing was her passion; she and her husband, Sam won many jitterbug contests.  Jean had a great sense of humor and enjoyed joking around with everyone, especially her grandson, Sam, for whom she loved dearly. She was a strong-willed woman and a fighter right up until her final moments.  She was immensely proud of her children’s careers and personal achievements.

During a period of health decline, she moved near her daughter in West Chester, where she enjoyed a renewed family relationship full of love and care.

All services will be held privately for the family. Interment, Grandview Cemetery.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Barclay Friends and Willow Tree Hospice for the love and care that was given to our mom.
