Jean Rishell Obituary
Jean Rishell

AGE: 83 • New Castle

Jean Rishell, 83, of New Castle, Delaware, formally of Reading, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, October 23rd, 2015 surrounded by her loving family.

She was the daughter of the late John and Ann Morgan. For over 20 years, she was employed by Sears. She then became the owner of Jean's Texaco for 16 years. She enjoyed gardening, baking, crafting, and tending to her koi ponds with her dog, Cricket, by her side. We will miss her warm heart, generosity, and her fervent desire to put her family's needs before her own, which she continued to do right to the very end.

Jean was predeceased by her husband, Rus, in 1981 and her brother Paul Morgan. She was the sister of Arlene Fichthorn, beloved mother of Rick, Doreen, and Keith, grandmother of Derrick, Dee, Haley, and Steve, and great grandmother of Alex.

Services will be private.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests sending donations to the Delaware Humane Association for her love of animals, 701 A Street, Wilmington, DE 19801.
