Clare (Pankok) Jones, 88, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 28, 2021, at Berks Heim.
Born the youngest of seven on Thanksgiving, November 24, 1932, in Salem, NJ, she was a daughter of the late Harry and Clara (Schuh) Pankok, and the loving wife of the late John Quig Stirling Jones, who passed in 2008.

Clare was employed for many years by Associated Printers, Inc, a family-owned business in Pennsville, NJ. After relocating to Reading, she delighted in volunteering in the gift shop of Reading Hospital, and truly enjoyed reading, sewing, old movies, and especially loved listening to Frank Sinatra. She was an elegant lady who will be dearly missed by her family.

Clare is survived by her daughters, Susan L. Bailey, wife of David, Wyomissing Hills, and Carol Berry, wife of Kim, Exeter Township, as well as three grandchildren: Jonathan Bailey, husband of Amanda, Alexandra Zamorski, wife of James, and Steven Zamorski, plus six great grandchildren, who she adored. She is also survived by her brother, Thomas A. Pankok.

In addition to her parents and husband, Clare was predeceased by her sister Helen Chrustowski and brothers Carl, Harry, Leo, and John.

Due to COVID restrictions, services are private at the convenience of Clare’s family. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her memory to Helping Harvest Food Bank, Reading PA at The Edward J. Kuhn Funeral Home, Inc., West Reading, is in charge of arrangements.

Learning of Clare’s passing hurts my heart. Clare P. Jones was indisputably my favorite volunteer at Reading Hospital. I told her so every time I saw her, but insisted she not to tell the others lest they become envious. She was an absolute joy and always packaged neatly in her blouses and scarves. She spoke often of her daughters, her late husband...and of course old blue eyes himself. I was saddened when she could no longer volunteer and have thought of her many times over the years. In fact I thought of her today, and as I occasionally do, checked the obituaries hoping not to see her name.

Clare, I hope your final years were as kind to you as you were to those who made your acquaintance. May your family find peace and comfort in knowing that you will occupy the cherished memories of so many others.

A cousin and a friend, Clare with personality plus could make any situation or conversation one with smiles and laughs. How wonderful it was to be in her company. And in a more serious vein, she was always willing to give more than receive, help more than ignore, and of course be the gal in the gift shop that made everyone happy and in the mood for buying.
My sincerest sympathy to Susan and Carol, and also her pride-and-joy grands and great grands. Peggy Newton
