O'Neill, Sharyn Weiss - Slocum Township  
Sharyn Weiss O'Neill, 65, of Slocum Township passed away Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2014, with her family and friends by her side after a courageous, five-year battle with lung cancer. She was an inspiration to many, always smiling and laughing. She believed in the motto Carpe Diem, living life to the fullest. Sharyn was born to Betty Weiss-Baer and the late Nathan (Sonny) Weiss on Sept. 14, 1949, in Wilkes-Barre. She graduated from Meyers High School in 1967 and earned her license in cosmetology from Empire Beauty School in Wilkes-Barre. Sharyn married her true love, John Jack O'Neill Jr., on March 10, 1971. A mother and homemaker, she served for 15 years in the Rice Elementary and Crestwood High School PTA and was a den mother for a Cub Scout pack, as well as a Girl Scout leader. Sharyn was a volunteer with the Slocum Township Volunteer Ambulance Association for 10 years and was employed by Lord and Taylor. Preceding her in death were her father, Nathan (Sonny) Weiss; brother, Barry (Chip) Weiss; and stepfather, Morton Baer. Sharyn is survived by her husband of 43 years, John J. O'Neill Jr., Slocum Township; her mother, Betty Weiss-Baer; daughter, Kendra Bevill, Los Angeles, Calif.; son, Sean O'Neill, Slocum Township; and grandchildren Jason and Cameron O'Neill and Kinsey and Kayla Bevill. The family would like to thank Dr. Adler, Dr. Lucas, Dr. Greenwald, the staff at Celtic Hospice and the friends who have helped with their presence and words of solace. Private funeral services will be held at the convenience of the family. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Desiderio Funeral Home Inc., 436 S. Mountain Blvd., Mountain Top.
