Loving Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Sister and Friend


Jean Alma Meresko (Kroen), born February 25, 1927; joined the two loves of her life, her beloved husband for 61 years, the late Robert J. Meresko and her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on September 26, 2020 while holding the hands of her daughters in her home. Preceded in death by parents Edward and Lucille Kroen, sister Shirley Branthoover, and grandson David Becker.
Faith, family, and friends kept her mind sharp while her body aged. She was the consummate sports fanatic, avid supporter of Cleveland culture, educator in the public-school system for 25 years, and Sunday school teacher at St. Paul Lutheran Church beginning at age 80 and continuing for 12 years. These activities shape the memories her family will cherish forever.
