Jean Mae Schiro, age 91, of Pittsburgh, PA, formerly of Wilton, CT, passed into God’s hands and into her husband’s arms on Thursday, May 3, 2018.

During her last six years, she resided at Marian Hall Personal Care Home, spent one month at Vincentian Nursing Home and her passing occurred at Good Samaritan Hospice.

Born September 12, 1926 in Yonkers, NY, she was the daughter of the late Julius and Irene Kurtz. Jean attended Bassick High School in Bridgeport, CT, from 1942-1945 and graduated from Booth and Bayliss Commercial School in Bridgeport in 1947. She was employed as a secretary at Packard Company in Bridgeport during the 1950’s.

She married Daniel Edward Schiro on August 22, 1953 and just celebrated 64 years together on August 22, 2017, shortly before his passing on August 26, 2017. Jean’s most rewarding job was being the most devoted and loving mother to her children and the most caring, loving and dedicated Nana to her two granddaughters.
