Nancy Anne Jackman

Clarks Summit, PA September 22, 1943 ~ January 11, 2015 Date of Service: January 14, 2015

Nancy Anne Jackman, Clarks Summit, died Sunday evening in Suburban Hospital, Bethesda, Md.


Born Sept. 22, 1943, in Peckville, daughter of Theresa Watso Shuta and the late Jacob Shuta, she was a graduate of St. Patrick's High School, Olyphant, and went on to attend Marywood College. Nancy enjoyed a rewarding career in communications and public relations as director of Allied Services Auxiliary, later retiring from CCIS in Scranton. Retirement brought many health issues, but also lots of fun and planning for much needed relaxation. She was an avid supporter of various theater, arts and culture in and around the Scranton area. Nancy passed away peacefully with loving family at her side, after many challenging health issues, which she always handled gracefully without anger or resentment.


She is survived by the most cherished daughter, Jody Jackman, Chevy Chase, Md.; dearest siblings, sister, Lyn McNevin and husband, Tony, Gardners; Vincent Shuta and wife, Anne Marie, Olyphant; and James Shuta and wife, Barbara, Dickson City; a multitude of loving nieces, nephews and cousins; a sister-in-law, Rhoda Isaacs, her children and their spouses; and all who knew her who rejoiced in her spirit, vitality, beauty and elegance.


Nancy will be missed greatly but never forgotten in the hearts of all who knew her. The funeral will be Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in the Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home Inc., 318 E. Drinker St., Dunmore, with services by Rabbi Daniel Swartz. Interment will follow in Temple Hesed Cemetery, Dunmore. The family will receive friends from 12:30 until the time of service.


Shiva will be observed at Nancy's home on Wednesday from 7 to 9 p.m. and Thursday from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m.


Memorial contributions may be made to any teaching heart hospital of the donor's choice.

My ondolences to Nancy's family, especially her daughter. I was friends with Nancy in the late 70's and will always remember her grace and graciousness.
I moved away from the Scranton area, but always remembered Nancy' s beauty-both inward and outward. What a lovely lady.

Dick andI were very saddened to read the obituary of your beautiful Mother. Have fond memories of meeting here around town and sharing fun conversations with her she was always smiling and so upbeat. Offered so much to our area. We always chatted about you and our Lisa(Moran) being good friends at Audobon. She was so proud of you. A big loss at such a young age. We. Realize how much you will miss her, but she live on in your memories. Love to you and our deepest sympathy.

I was so saddened to see that your mother had passed. She was one of the nicest ladies I have ever met. Please accept my sincere and heartfelt condolences for your loss. Everytime I spoke with her your name popped up. She always said how proud she was of you and what a nice woman you turned out to be. God bless you.

Your friend

I can't begin to say how sorry I am. My deepest, most heartfelt sympathy to you Jody and to your family. Nancy was my best, most beloved friend and my heart is broken that she had to leave too soon. It would always be too soon for me. We shared 20 years of life, telling our secrets, comparing our past stories, seeing films and arguing the merits, agreeing on politics and laughing endlessly about everything and nothing. She was private, I probed. She hated where the English language seemed to be headed. I apologized for smart phones. She was the most 'classy' intelligent woman I've ever met and I can't quite believe she's gone on without me. Bon Voyage, my beloved friend. Bon Voyage.
