Mary Jane Hahn
Mary Jane Jones Hahn, 84, of Mendon, formerly of New Castle, Pa., crossed the golden bridge that spans from earth to heaven Jan. 8, 2014, peacefully at her home.
She was born Aug. 14, 1929, in New Castle, to Roger and Sarah Jones Jones. On March 21, 1969, she married Fred Hahn, who died Oct. 7, 1996.
She was the loving mother of nine children who survive, three daughters, Linda (Paul) Jaworski, Erie, Pa., Sara Busacca, Mendon, and Jackie Strama and her partner Missy Thiele, Marathon, Fla.; her sons, Thomas (Gloria) Hahn and Chuck (Anita) Jones, all of New Castle, Pa., Ken (Rainy) Hahn, Mesa, Ariz., Bill Hahn, Erie, Pa., Stan (Diane) Jones, Napa Valley, Calif., and Richard Jones, Mendon.
Also preceding her in death were her only brother, Roger Jones, and her son-in-law, Angelo Busacca.
She and her husband, Fred, had owned and operated Anthony's Bakery in New Castle. She attended First Church of God, Celina.
She loved to bake, and donated her baked goods to several different charitable organizations. She also enjoyed writing poems about her family and authored a children's book, "Made by God, One of a Kind." Spending time with her family was everything to her.
"How good and pleasant it is when families live together in unity. It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard." Psalms 133:1-2.
Her biggest joy was her 21 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and faithful companion, Sparky, her dog.
Private family services will be held at a later date.
Preferred memorials may be made to the Special Olympics of Lawrence County, Pa., P.O. Box 5505, New Castle, PA 16105 or the Shriners Hospital for Cancer.
W.H. Dick & Sons-Hellwarth Funeral Home, Mendon, is handling arrangements.
