Mary Jean (Tina) Mosca, 61, of Forty Fort passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her family Monday, April 30, 2012.

Born in Kingston, Tina was a daughter of the late George and Olga Kobela Broody.

She was a graduate of Berwick High School, Class of 1968, and Mansfield University, Class of 1972. Tina began her master's program at Bloomsburg University and received her master's degree from West Chester University.

Tina was formerly employed by the Crestwood School District teaching first and second grades at Rice Elementary School, Mountain Top. Also an accomplished businesswoman, Tina was an integral part of her husband's business, Cabinets, Counters and More Inc., Wilkes-Barre Township and Wyoming.

Tina was a truly selfless person who lived for her family. She loved to help them and cook delicious homemade meals. She told stories of her life growing up on the farm in Berwick. Reminiscing about her childhood, one would think it was a fairytale. This molded Tina into the sweet and wonderful woman that she was, following in the footsteps of her amazing mother. Her presence lit up every room she entered. She was the happiest watching her daughters in their many endeavors; traveling throughout the country on field hockey tournaments and pageants. Her profession was teacher and businesswoman, but her true passion was supporting Elise and Vanessa.

She was a member of the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, Kingston.

Preceding her in death, in addition to her parents, were a sister, Deborah Ann Broody, and brother, John Broody.

Surviving are her husband of 29 years, John Mosca, Forty Fort; daughters, Elise Christina Mosca, Vanessa Jean Mosca, Philadelphia; brother, George Broody Jr., Berwick; and sister, Suzanne Hontz and husband, Robert, Berwick; several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held at 9 a.m. Friday from Harold C. Snowdon Home for Funerals Inc., 420 Wyoming Ave., Kingston. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 9:30 a.m. in St. Ann's Chapel, North Loveland Avenue and Hoyt Street, Kingston. Monsignor John Bendik will officiate. Interment will be made in St. Mary Antiochian Orthodox Cemetery, Hanover Township. Friends may call at the funeral home from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions for melanoma awareness may be made to the Benefit Fund for Tina Mosca, PNC Bank, Schechter Drive, Wilkes-Barre Township, PA 18706.
