Imogene (“Jean”) Coen Dalbo, 83, of Cecil Township, passed away on November 22, 2020 at the home of her niece, while under hospice care. She was the loving wife of Fred Dalbo, with whom she shared 21 years of marriage until his death in 2004. Born in Hendersonville, PA, she was the daughter of the late James Burl and Mary Ellen (Brewer) Coen.
Jean graduated from University of Pittsburgh. She loved her career as an elementary school teacher in the Canon- McMillan School District for 33 years. Aunt “Jeannie” was particularly proud of her 8 nieces and nephews, whom she cherished as if they were her own. She enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, crocheting, and puzzle building. She loved time spent with family and friends above all else. She was known by all who knew and loved her for her kindness, her beautiful smile, her laugh, and her endless supply of beautifully crocheted scrubbies.
Jean is survived by her nieces, Pam (Jeff) Ackerman, Becky (Joe) Wilks, Billie Sue (Dave) Sayres, Mary Beth Miesemer, Rose (George) Brozenick, Mary (Terry) Shuba, and her nephews Burl (Margie) Coen and Jeff Coen. She is also survived by her granddaughter Elise (Chris) Gutacker, 2 great-granddaughters, Winnie and Shirley Gutacker, and her sister-in-law, Ella Coen.
In addition to her parents and husband, Jean was preceded in death by her loving brothers, James Clair Coen, George Coen, and Bill Coen, and her sister, Ilene Coen.
