Jean Madonia born in New York City, New York, on September 30, 1944, went home to be with the Lord on December 16, 2019 at age 75. Jean was preceded in death by her parents Raymond J. Jr. and Theresa Messmer, from Oneida, New York and brother Andrew Messmer. Jean was also preceded in death by her high school sweetheart of 58 years, Anthony Madonia. Jean is survived by her siblings: Raymond J. Messmer (Risë), Kathleen Campbell; children: Pamela Helmers (Jeffery), Francine Wylie ( Russell), Theresa Rogers ( Mike), Nino Madonia (Joyce), along with 16 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Jean made the best eggplant parmigiana—hands down! She enjoyed gardening, patriotism and most of all, quality time with her loving family. She was filled with joy, laughter, and made each family member feel loved in a unique way. Jean was a Proverbs 31 woman, and will be missed tremendously.
