NEW CASTLE, Pennsylvania (MyValleyTributes) – Jean Parillo, 91, of Union Township, died peacefully in her home on Tuesday, May 11, 2021.

Jean attended First Assembly of God Church for many years where she participated in Women’s Bible Study. She loved her church family and friends dearly. She also participated in card club with a group of lovely ladies whom she held closely to her heart. This was among her favorite activities.
She had a sweet, loving spirit and wanted nothing more than to be a blessing to everyone with whom she came into contact. She was generous and kind, thinking always of others before herself, and she was funny- but didn’t know it.

She also leaves behind two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, Brittney Kidd, her husband, George and their children, Journey and Justice and Grace Ford, her husband, Gary and their children, Sydney and Sabrina Jean.
Family meant everything to Jean and she swelled with pride upon every thought of them. She will be deeply missed by us all until we join her and those who’ve gone on before her in Heaven.
