Mary Ann Juris, 64, Dickson City, died peacefully in her sleep Monday, Sept. 7.
Born May 12, 1956, in Scranton, she was the daughter of John and Irene (Pallo) Musyt. She was a 1974 graduate of Bishop O'Hara High School. She fell in love with and married the boy down the street, William R. Juris Jr. They would have celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary on Oct. 29.
She was a member of Holy Cross Parish in Olyphant. Mary Ann recently retired after 24 years as a dedicated employee at the Law Firm of Foley, Cognetti, Comerford, Cimini & Cummins.
Mair took great pleasure in the simple things in life. She loved being around family, especially vacationing with Chris and Chrissy, enjoyed cooking and baking, or just sitting on her back porch with Bill. She was very talented and loved doing many different arts and crafts. She loved cardinals and said that whenever they were around so were the Angels. She was the one who would also remember family with birthday cards, anniversary cards and especially the holiday cards she would send to her great-nephews who truly enjoyed looking at the cards from Aunt Mair. Everyone who met Mary Ann would quickly realize that she would do anything for anyone, at any time, and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
Along with her devoted husband, she is survived by two sons, Christopher Juris and wife, Chrissy, Dickson City, and William Juris III, Pittston; grandchildren, Kayla Juris, and Shawn and Noah Lahey, and her two grandpuppies, Leila and Gus, who will be lost without her; two brothers, John Musyt and wife, Jackie; and Robert Musyt and wife, Donna; brother-in-law, Joseph Juris and wife, June; sister-in-law, Doris Merli and husband, Rickie; several nieces, nephews and cousins; and an aunt, Helen Adamski and husband, Edward.
