Mary Jane Wrubel, 92, of Duryea, passed away Sun­day, April 15, 2018, at Wes­ley Vil­lage Nurs­ing Home, Pittston, sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily.

She was born in Pittston Twp. on Nov. 25, 1925, and was the daugh­ter of the late Jesse and Kathyrn Flan­nery Miller.

Mary Jane was a mem­ber of Queen of the Apos­tles Par­ish Church, Avoca. She at­tended Pittston Twp. schools.

Dur­ing World War II, she was em­ployed by In­de­pen­dent Ex­plo­sives and made mu­ni­tions for the war ef­fort.

Mary Jane started a fam­ily with her late hus­band, John Wrubel, who passed away in May 1986. Af­ter rais­ing her fam­ily she went back to work as a self-em­ployed clean­ing lady. She worked for St. Mary’s Parochial School; Dairy Dan Ice Cream, Dupont; and var­i­ous pri­vate res­i­dences.

De­voted to her fam­ily, Mary Jane was the quin­tes­sen­tial nur­turer, homemaker and care­giver. She took great joy in serv­ing her fam­ily from a place of love and will for­ever be re­mem­bered for her car­ing ways.

In ad­di­tion to her par­ents and her hus­band, she was pre­ceded in death by her son, Brian; grand­chil­dren, Scott and Shawn Zio­bro and Jazmyn Wrubel; brother, Jesse Miller Jr.; and sis­ter, Kathyrn Wru­ble.

She is sur­vived by her daugh­ter, Sharon Zio­bro and her hus­band, Leonard, Moosic; sons, John Wrubel and his wife, Therese, Avoca; Ge­orge Wrubel, Blakely; and Richard Wrubel, Old Forge; daugh­ter-in-law, Jacki Wrubel; and brothers, Jack and his wife, Dolores Miller, Sus­con; and Ge­orge Miller, Plains Twp.

Mary Jane’s fam­ily would like to thank Dr. Jim Tri­carico for his many years of spe­cial care of Gram, and to the many nurses and staff at Wes­ley Vil­lage who took care of her for the last six years, es­pe­cially her fa­vorite nurse, Lori.
