Crispell, Mary J.* - Dallas  
DALLAS — Mary J. Crispell, 93, a longtime resident of Dallas, died peacefully on May 13, 2015, after a brief stay at the Meadows Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Dallas; having resided in Meadows Manor since 2001. Born in Kingston, she was a daughter of the late Rhys and Hannah Griffiths Jones. Mary was a graduate of Kingston High School. Known to most all who met her as "Mary J.," she was an inspirational and multi-careered woman who stepped out on her own first as a lab technician at the Wilkes-Barre Homeopathic Hospital, and later as a colorist for a photographer in Wilkes-Barre. In the 1950s, she began work as an x-ray technician at the former Nesbitt Memorial Hospital and eventually taught other technicians. Her unfailing energy and enthusiasm coupled with a determination to learn, acquire additional skills and accomplishments were the perfect formula for her success as a Realtor in the Wyoming Valley. She moved from a sales person to broker and owner of her own full-service real estate firm and was held in wide esteem for her commitment to her clients and to professional ethics. She was a member of the Greater Wilkes-Barre Board of Realtors and was voted Realtor of the Year in 1991. She served in many leadership volunteer roles, and had a strong interest in mentoring younger real estate professionals. Many in the Back Mountain area will remember the landmark green and white building – "The Mary J. Crispell Real Estate Office" at the corner of Center Street and Memorial Highway, Shavertown. It was her marriage to Loren N. Crispell that provided her greatest love and work, as she would say, her family. Celebrating more than 50 years of marriage with her extraordinary husband who predeceased her in March of 1995, it was her children and, in later years, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren that brought her the greatest happiness and rewards. Mary J. and her husband provided an unconditionally welcoming home for their family and friends. They would celebrate holidays and birthdays with incomparable hospitality. She had an uncompromising work ethic and possessed amazing energy, inspiring their children to emulate similar characteristics. She loved music and attended Gymanfa Ganus. Her Welsh background led her to encourage her children and grandchildren to participate in the Annual Eisteddfod, Edwardsville. At home, she and her husband frequently entertained, playing piano and singing. She was genuinely fun to be around and loved life to the fullest as long as she was able. Mary J. was a Brownie and Girl Scout leader, a member of the West Side Junior Women's Club and Republican Committee Woman. She drove older members of the community to the election polls and also often delivered Meals on Wheels. A longtime member of the Shavertown United Methodist Church, she provided many years of dedicated service in many of the church's activities and governance, including terms serving as trustee and chair of the Finance Committee. She will be remembered by all who knew her for her love of family, her commitment to her profession, her belief in her faith, her love of country and her incomparable style and spirit. Preceding her in death, in addition to her parents and husband, were brothers, David, Harold and Walter; and most recently, by her sister, Emiah, in January. She is survived by her three children, Karen Winters and her husband, Raymond, State College, Loren N. Crispell Jr. and his wife, Maggie, State College, Scott Crispell and his wife, Paula, Harveys Lake. She was an amazing mother and will be forever remembered as a spirited, happy and generous "Mom Mom" to her grandchildren, Noah Crispell, Loren N. Crispell III and Molly Crispell McIntyre. She was blessed even further to meet and love her two great-grandchildren, Nathan Paul Crispell, son of Loren N. Crispell III and Jennifer Orlando Crispell, and Maggie Rose McIntyre, daughter of Molly Crispell McIntyre and Damian McIntyre. A celebration of Mary J.'s life will be held 11 a.m. May 26 in Shavertown United Methodist Church, Pioneer Avenue and Center Street, Shavertown. Friends may call 10 a.m. to time of service May 26 at the church. The Crispell family wishes to extend their sincerest gratitude to the staff of Meadows Manor, as well as, to Dr. Lanning Anselmi for their many years of care. Memorial contributions, if desired, may be made to the Shavertown United Methodist Church, 163 Pioneer Ave., Shavertown, PA 18708; or to Ecumenical Enterprises Inc., 3135 Memorial Hwy No. 1, Dallas, PA 18612. Arrangements are entrusted to Harold C. Snowdon Funeral Home Inc., 140 N. Main St., Shavertown.
