Mary Jane Swavely Obituary
Mary Jane Swavely, 49, St. Joseph's Center, Dickson City, died Monday at Geisinger Community Medical Center after an illness.

Born Oct. 8, 1969, in Quakertown, the daughter of the late William and Irene Swavely, although she only became a part of St. Joseph's Center in March 2017, she so readily shared her outgoing personality, that she was beloved by all who worked, lived and interacted with her. As a social butterfly, she made a big impact on each person she met and affectionately called her caregivers "sweetie." Mary Jane liked knowing and sharing what was going on in the house. She enjoyed delicious food, especially sweets, and always had a coffee close at hand. She loved a good party. She made friends easily and loved going out, especially for shopping, coffee, parties, nail appointments and, of course, restaurants. Her hobbies included puzzles and card games. She was clear about disliking exercise. Mary Jane loved to be pampered and would never miss an opportunity to do so. Her years with St. Joseph's Center were few, but we can take comfort in knowing that they were good years for Mary Jane. She experienced a great sense of belonging, affirmation and encouragement. She was celebrated for the unique person she was and added much life and joy to every situation.

A funeral Mass of Christian Burial will be Friday at 10 a.m. in Immaculate Conception Church, 801 Taylor Ave., Scranton. Interment will be Friday in St. Catherine's Cemetery, Moscow.

A viewing will be in the church on Friday from 9 until the time of Mass.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Jenkins-Howell Funeral Home Inc., Edward Howell, funeral director, 269 Belmont St., Waymart.
