Obituary for Jeanette Mary Cronan

Jeanette Marie (Donatelli) Cronan, of Shillington, passed away on August 27, 2020. Born in Hamburg to the late Antonio and Maria (Amicone) Donatelli, she was able to celebrate her 85th birthday with her family. Jeanette was the widow of Richard T Cronan, who passed away in 2005.

Growing up, Jeanette attended Hamburg School District and St Mary’s Church.

Jeanette worked at Alexander’s Jewelry Store in Hamburg, Chanel / Rickels Hardware, and retired from Governor Mifflin School District as a Cook and Baker. Her favorite job was babysitting her grandchildren.

She was an active member of St Johns de la Salle Roman Catholic Church, and, until recently, participated with the Prime Timers, going to casinos and shows, playing bingo, and trips to places of interest. Jeanette loved the Poconos for the changing of the leaves. A great cook, she was best known for her sour cream cookies, awesome lasagna, and oyster filling.

She will be extremely missed by all who loved her and leaves behind her children, Carol Stuebner (Bryan), Michael, Patrick, and Christopher (Kathy Herb), and her grandchildren, Blake, Logan, Austin, Mackenzie, Shaniah, and Harrison. She is also survived by her sister Antoinette Shepherd (Larry), sister-in-law Catherine (Cronan) Krick, brother-in-laws Herbert Deibert and Leonard Peitruszynski, and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

In addition to her husband and parents, she is predeceased by her siblings Luciano Donatelli, Antonio Donatelli, John Donatelli, Ralph (Bill) Donatelli, Joseph Donatelli, Ellisa Italia, Mary Russo, Anne Peitruszynski, Lolita Deibert and two siblings that passed very young.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St Jude’s Children’s Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis TN. 38105

A beautiful lady. I only met her a couple times, but she was very nice to talk with. So sweet, and kind. My heart goes out to her loved ones. I know she will be dearly missed.

Aunt Jeannie was simply THE best ... even though its been years since I have seen her, she always left a smile on my face from my childhood memories. So sweet, so kind, so gentle, never a harsh word or elevated tone ... I remember vividly playing bacci ball (sp?)at a Reading family backyard picnic and was trying so hard to learn ...well, I tried a bit too hard and the ball went right through the cellar window!! As a child I was completely traumatized ... there simply wasn't a single reprimand and the party went on ... no trauma counseling required! Praying that you all will find Peace & Comfort in knowing that she is truly now your forever Guardian Angel ... Love always, Ellen (Zaleskie)Daulerio
