Jean B. Wilson

AGE: 91 • Venice, FL

On Wednesday, August 17, Jean Brandenberger Wilson, 91, of Venice, FL passed away peacefully after an honorable and determined struggle to recover from a stroke.

Jean was born on November 11, 1924 in Wilmington, DE and graduated from P.S. du Pont High School in 1942 where she enjoyed playing sports. She retired as the medical transcription supervisor in 1988 after 20 years with the Wilmington Medical Center.

Jean is survived by her sons, William G. Shaw and spouse, Ana of Venice, FL, Richard A. Shaw and spouse, Diane of Middletown, DE, Leonard J. Wilson and partner, Scott Mastrangelo of Wilmington, DE and her son-in-law Joseph W. Sloniewski; her grandchildren, Nicol Ontag, Rick Shaw, Lauren Shaw, Ryan Shaw, Alison Sloniewski, Taylor Sloniewski; and her great-grandchildren, Evan Keefe and Jaxson Ontag. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Donna L. Sloniewski.

Jean loved athletics and encouraged her children to participate in sports and became their most ardent supporter. She adored the beach and spent much of her time with family in Wildwood, NJ, Bethany Beach, DE and Casey Key, FL. Above all, she was devoted to her family and their friends and her memory will be cherished by all who knew her and shared her laughter and love of life.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions to the Delaware Center for Horticulture, 1810 N. Dupont St. Wilmington, DE 19806. She will be laid to rest in a private ceremony at Gracelawn Memorial Park.
