Stickell III (wife Megan) of Chambersburg, Joshua Stickell (companion Lisa Longo) of Chambersburg, Seth R.

Scott (wife Delores) of Fayetteville, and James Scott (wife Jean) of Chambersburg; and a cherished niece, Tamela M. Rife (husband Bryan) of Chambersburg; and a host of other family and friends. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Joe Stickell and her second husband, James W. O'Brien; a son, James George Scott; and three sisters and two brothers.
