Jean Nudy, 92 of Strafford, PA, formerly of Ardmore, PA passed away July 22nd and took her place in heaven. She was a generous and loving woman, survived by her husband Dominick (Joe) Nudy, siblings Dominic (Lynn) and Carol, sister in-law Betty, brother in-law William, and seven wonderful children, Dominic Joseph (Carol), Raymond (Irene), Nicholas (Darlene), Eda (William), Celeste (James), James (Lisa), and Robert. She was blessed with 23 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren who lovingly referred to her as Mum Mum. Jean was predeceased by her parents Augustine and Celeste Giangiulio, and siblings Mary, Antoinette, Gloria, and Nicholas.

Jean was a caring and good-hearted woman, who was always willing to help others in need and always had a positive word to share. Her laugh was contagious and she was the glue to her large Italian family.

Joe and Jean were married for 64 years, all of which were filled with love, sincerity, and laughter. In 1956, they were married and moved to Strafford to start their family. They lovingly built their own home where she and Joe lived for her entire life. The house has been home to many happy holidays (especially Christmas-eve), family gatherings, and impromptu cooking sessions where Jean taught the family to make her famous cookies, Italian salad, and gnocchi.

Jean loved to play bingo with her grandchildren, put together puzzles, and knit. She knit hundreds of hats and would donate them for the newborn infants at Paoli Hospital. Her most memorable trip was when she and Joe were able to join Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church and travel to Italy to visit the Vatican and see her parent’s childhood home. Jean loved to attend her grand-children’s sporting events, recitals, and plays. She and Joe drove up and down the east coast to attend every event and were a constant on the sidelines. She was loved by many, and will be missed by all.

All family and friends are invited to a funeral service at the Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church in Strafford, Pa on Monday, July 27th at 11:00 am. Interment at Calvary Cemetery, in Conshohocken, PA.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory to Our Lady of Assumption Church and the American Cancer Society are appreciated.

I will always remember “Aunt Jean” as one of the very few Nudys to acknowledge me.
I really enjoyed the delicious lunch I recently shared with her and “Uncle Joe” at their home. It was a good time!
May this wonderful woman rest in peace.
My best to her family.

Jean Nudy was one of the most welcoming, lovely, kind people I’ve ever met. She always had a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye.. The gentle command she and Joe had over their enormous family was a sight to behold; the incredible bond they shared reflected the dream that all brides and grooms share on their wedding day but rarely achieve. Together they were a master class in how to be a good spouse, good parent, good neighbor. Jean has been so unrelenting in her commitment to wrap everyone in her mantle of love ...even those who rarely show up — Jean/Joe were such an incredible team.. doing the hard work of staying connected to those they love - and LOL , always including, even the ones who so rarely showed up to the party of life they orchestrated. What a Gal that Jean Nudy!!!!

Uncle Joe - I cannot express in mere mortal words how important Aunt Jean has been to me for more than 50 years. We shared stories about raising our children. We talked about making good food. No matter what my situation, she always had the right words for me to hear. I loved her dearly! I will miss her so much! My thoughts and prayers are with you through the times ahead. I love you too!
