Jean Dailey

Jean Crane Dailey, 87, of Scranton, died Monday at Abington Manor. She was the widow of John Martin Dailey.

Born May 14, 1931, in Scranton, daughter of the late Martin A. and Lourdes McGurrin Crane Meske, she was a graduate of Holy Rosary High School, Scranton and Lackawanna Business College. She was office manager for Preston Trucking, Scranton and was an administrative assistant for the personnel director for General Electric Co., Scranton prior to marriage.

An accomplished classical pianist, she enjoyed music, theatre and had a love of learning. She often shared her quick wit with others, bringing a smile. Her gentleness and kind smile will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Dailey, Megan E. Dailey; and grandson, Daniel C. Dailey; great-granddaughters, Amanda Goyette, Quinn Gunter and Vada Dailey; great-grandsons, Levi and Oliver Dailey, two great-great grandchildren, Alicia and Shane Goyette; nieces and nephews.

She was also preceded in death by a brother, Staff Sgt. Paul Martin Crane, who was killed in action during World War II at the age of 17; and an infant sister, Mary Dolores Crane.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be Saturday at 9:30 a.m. from Our Lady of the Snows Church, 301 S. State St., Clarks Summit, to be celebrated by Monsignor Joseph G. Quinn, pastor. Interment will be private at Cathedral Cemetery.
