Jean was the most loving, caring and thoughtful mother and grandmother. Her son, Mark, was her pride and joy. She was so proud of her only granddaughter, Amanda, and loved spending “girl time” with her daughter-in-law, Amy. She always enjoyed getting together with her family, her best friend Theresa, and was very close to her sister, Andrea. She enjoyed dancing to Polka music and attending Zabawa every year. Her favorite musical artists included Elvis, Patsy Cline, Teresa Brewer and Loretta Lynn. She adored her grandcat, Caviar. She was an excellent cook and story teller. Making Haluski was her favorite. She cherished her time cooking for the Priests at St. Mark’s Seminary.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two sisters, Fran Wilson and Mary Ann Williams and her best friend, Theresa Bogdanski.

She is survived by a son, Mark Petroff, Jr. and his wife Amy; her beloved granddaughter, Amanda Petroff; her ex-husband, Mark Petroff, Sr.; three sisters, Andrea Straub, Annette Bellomo (Joe) and Elaine (Donnie) Wilson; a niece, Karen (Rob) Sheldon, two nephews, Tom and Jeff Nowling and one niece, Charlene D’Onofrio.
