Mary Jean Morris

Mary Jean Morris, wife, widow, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, daughter, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, and godmother to so many, passed away peacefully on April 11, 2024, at the remarkable age of 95 years. Known simply as “Jean” by her large, and devoted family, she was ever the rock on whom everyone in her large, extended family relied. Jean never disappointed or failed anyone. Not ever.

Jean departed this world as she lived: quietly and with dignity, to join her devoted husband of 54 years, John P. Morris, Sr. who passed away too soon in 2002, and to return home to the arms of her large Irish-Catholic family for whom she was always present and available. Jean was the first to arrive for every occasion in support of her family, especially to the difficult events like hospitals stays and funerals that others preferred to avoid.

Born on September 8, 1928, in Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania in the storied and rugged Anthracite coal regions of Schuylkill County to Mae Francis Thornton and John Herbert McCarthy, who were only children whose marriage produced five children: Helen (Quinn), Jean, Jack, Jim and Patricia (McLafferty). Jean’s parents were the first generation of Irish-Catholic immigrants to be born in the United States to coal miners, industrial workers, and proud members of the working class.

Like so many members of the Greatest Generation, her birth family was first separated by the need to secure employment during the Great Depression, and later by World War II. Her father John Herbert McCarthy was a Philadelphia Police Officer, a Merchant Marine, and a Torpedoman on three U.S. Submarines, before his last assigned submarine was sunk by the Germans in the North Atlantic in 1944. Her mother Mae carried on and raised the family alone, while working for two doctors, and keeping house for her widowed father, Peter J. Thornton (Ellen Donnelly Thornton), and her children. No easy task.

In loving memory of Elizabeth A. MacCarter, 95 1/2 years young who passed away on April 30, 2024. She was the devoted mother of Catherine Morrissey (Mike), Theresa Veltri (James) and son Michael MacCarter.

Born on October 30, 1928, Philadelphia, PA to the late William and Catherine Schwechtje. She was a kind, loving and giving person who loved her family more than anything.

As matriarch, she instilled the importance of family. She was a source of love and inspiration and her absence will be deeply felt by all her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, extended family and friends.

Elizabeth was preceded in death by her husband John, her son Scott, her sisters Eva and Margaret, as well as her brothers William and George, nephews Frank, Robert, Kevin and her great nephew Frankie.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend her visitation on Tuesday, May 7th, from 10-11am at John F.

Born June 30, 1964, Mildred (Milly) brought joy and laughter into the world. She was a kind, caring and giving person who always put the needs of her family before her own. Milly was a force to be reckoned with; a strong woman who faced every challenge in her life with courage and dignity. As matriarch, she embodied and instilled the importance of family, hard work and doing what is right.

Working at Bi Rite Deli in Morrell for 20 years, Milly was an important part of her community. With her genuine smile and contagious laugh, Milly had a way of making everyone feel loved and valued. Her kindness and compassion were felt by all the lives she touched.

Milly was a source of love and inspiration and her absence will be deeply felt.

Milly was predeceased by her son, Scott. She is survived by her sons, Glenn and Shawn, and her partner, Brian Conway Sr., and his 4 children, Jacklyn, Angie, Amanda, and Brian.
