She graduated from Keystone Community College in 1955 with a degree in medical technology and enjoyed a lifelong career at Mercy Hospital in Scranton. She married John N. Stange III in 1986.

Jean was a talented ballroom dancer, an avid skier and a longtime member of St. Cyril's choir. Jean was passionate about helping others and she generously volunteered her time and resources at Allied Services Rehab Hospital and St. Joseph's Center and was secretary of the Scranton Ski Club.

Jean is survived by her husband of 33 years, John N. Stange III; sister, Cathie Peernock; brother, Robert Peernock; her children, Jeff and Chris Pirhalla, the Rev. John Stange IV, Tami Christianson, Stephanie Basalyga; 15 grandchildren; nieces and nephews.
