Jean M. Brick, 91, of Factoryville, passed peacefully Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at The Gardens,
Tunkhannock. She was born in Philadelphia on March 19, 1928, daughter of the late John and Mildred
Schoppe Gallagher. Jean is predeceased by her beloved husband George; they would have celebrated
their 71st wedding anniversary November 24th
.

Jean and George moved eleven times during their first ten years of marriage when he worked for
Woolworths. But Jean always managed to make a real home for her growing family. They started the
Brick’s Market Legacy when they opened Brick’s General Store in Lawsville, PA in 1957 and could put
down some roots. In 1965 they moved to Factoryville as the business grew. Now Jean could finally revel
in creating the home that stayed the center of the family for over fifty years.
Traditions, for holidays or any day, were born in her home and continue down the generations. “Home”
was always there, always open; a steady presence for her family which is still growing. Jean is survived
by three daughters: Lynn Reynolds and husband Paul of Factoryville, Nancy Burdick and husband Don of
Union Dale and Carol Weisenfluh and husband Kevin of Factoryville; grandchildren: Michele Strickland,
Martin Reynolds, Aaron Slick, Ben Burdick, Frostina Roy, Haley Townsley, and Owen Weisenfluh; great
grandchildren: Maura and Paige Strickland, Gabriel and Finnegan Roy, Theron Townsley and baby Slick
who is on the way; several nieces and nephews.
During the last fifty years, Jean was active in the Tunkhannock Methodist Church and a member of
United Methodist Women. George and his “Brown Eyes” enjoyed traveling, summers on the river in the
Thousand Islands, but most importantly, time with family and friends.
Jean’s family would like to thank the staff of The Gardens at Tunkhannock for their compassionate
thoughtful care. The family would also like to recognize the careful guidance of Hospice of The Sacred
Heart. Special thanks to Jane Richards and Beverly Schneider for the loving care they provided for Jean
in her home.
Funeral services will be Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 11 a.m. from Tunkhannock United Methodist
