Jean Shelesky
EASTON
Jean (Schweisgut) Shelesky, 95, of Easton, formerly Bethlehem, passed away on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, at the Easton Home. She was the wife of the late Edward J. Shelesky.
Born September 10, 1925, Jean (Jeannette) was the daughter of the late Frank and Anna Schweisgut of Southside Bethlehem.
Jean graduated from Liberty High School in 1943. She was employed as a meat wrapper for Food Lane, LaneCo, and Falks before retiring. Jean enjoyed spending time at her parents' summer home at White Heron Lake, Marshalls Creek. She was an avid fisherwoman, enjoyed walks in the woods, picking mushrooms and berries, and looking for deer. She loved her crafts, crocheting, bingo, decorating cakes, watching football (an avid Eagles fan) and playing cards.
Jean and Ed both loved to travel and visited California, Nevada, Colorado, Montana, Yellowstone, New England, Maryland and Florida. They spent many happy summers in Myrtle Beach with their loving cousins and friends. Lake Wallenpaupack was another site of many reunions with long time friends. They also took several cruises to the Caribbean, and one memorable cruise through the Panama Canal.
Jean is survived by her daughter Jeannette D'Angelo and husband Louis of Allentown; her son Edward J. Shelesky, Jr. of Annandale, VA; and her grandson Robert E. Miller and wife Amber and their daughter, Daphne of Sacramento. Jean also leaves behind many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends, all of which loved her. In addition to her husband, she was predeceased by her sister, Anna Hornung.

My deepest sympathy for Jeanette and her family. She was my patient for many years at her dental office. We had great talks because she grew up near my grandmother and my mothers home. She was a lovely woman and friend ! Colleen D., California.

We are old neighbors from Wilden Acres. Our main contact was with Eddie who often watched our children, brought them gifts from his travels and played music with them. We talk about your family often. We are so sorry for the loss of your mother and send our prayers and deepest sympathy. We remember her kind smile and sweet personality. Knowing that she was German, we once sent her a German Christmas gift. Eddie said that his mom would be happy to be my sister. Obviously, I sent a card that I could not read that said, Merry Christmas to my sister. We laugh about that every Christmas. We have an appointment for tomorrow that we cannot change but we will be thinking of you and remembering your dear mom.
