Jean Mazur

March 11, 1931 — December 11, 2021

Jean Mazur, 90, of Blakely, passed away on Saturday. She was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, Edward Mazur, who died in 2000. She was the daughter of Steven and Helen Drakes. She was born and raised on the upper east side of Manhattan and often talked about playing in the streets of Manhattan and in Central Park. Jean was a member of Holy Cross Parish at St. Patrick’s Church, formerly St. Michael the Archangel Church, Olyphant. She was an avid reader who did the newspaper crossword puzzle daily. She was a loving and generous wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother and will be missed dearly. She was an incredibly kind, selfless and deeply spiritual soul. She dedicated her life to God and her family and always looked for the good in people. She would say, “do not judge anyone since you don’t know what they went through in life.” Jean was a great example of how we should live our lives. Jean is survived by four sons, Edward, Robert (Ramona) and Martin (companion, Joanie), all of Blakely; and Steven (Susan), of Jermyn; two daughters, Marianne Dobrzyn (Len), of Peckville; and Helene Teeple (Mike), of Jermyn. Also surviving are six grandchildren, Eddie Mazur Jr., Gary Venosh, Aleece Dobrzyn, Kelley Roma, Sara Zabrowski and Brittney Mazur; six great-grandchildren, Daxton, Brinley, Eddie, Claire, Lena and Connor; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her brother, Thomas Drakes, who died in 2020. Funeral Mass will be Thursday at 9:30 a.m. at Holy Cross Parish at St. Patrick’s Church, 200 Delaware Ave., Olyphant. The Rev. Scott Sterowski, pastor, will officiate. Interment will follow in St. Michael the Archangel Cemetery, Blakely. Friends may call Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Hudak-O’Shea Funeral Home Inc., 115 Garfield Ave., Olyphant. Friends are asked to go directly to the church on Thursday morning.
