Genevieve “Jean” Ginter

Genevieve “Jean” Ginter went to join her beloved Sylvester on January 21, at Mountain View Care Center where she had been a resident since November 2017.

He husband of 56 years, Edward “Butch” Ginter (aka: Sylvester), passed away December 14, 2009.

Born in the Greenwood Section of Moosic on August 26, 1926, daughter of the late Konstanty Snarski, Sr. and Bronislawa “Bertha” Danielczyk, she was a lifelong resident of Moosic.

She was the chief cook at her parent’s bar, Snarski’s, where Jean prepared all those wonderful Polish dishes kielbasa, pierogi, golabki, kapusta, and potato pancakes, especially for the Polaron Products lunch crowd and all the other patrons who visited Snarski’s.

Surviving are a sister, Ceil Pyeron, Harleysville and many devoted nieces and nephews. Although childless Jean and “Butch” were like second parents who provided many wonderful memories and experiences.

She was preceded in death by a brother Konstanty Snarski, Jr., and sisters Stella Snarski, Felicia Kupiec, Ann Rickwalder, Hedwig Mozeleski, Helen

Krawczyk and Bernice Snarski.

We, the family, would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the nurses and staff of Mountain View Care Center, especially those in the Camelot unit, for their limitless patience and devotion to Jean’s care and comfort, specifically during the pandemic when their hand and faces and smiles and kind words had to take the place of ours.

A special thank you to Dr. Martin J. Moran, Jr. and his staff for the care and concern shown to Jean.

So sorry for you loss. I grew up in the Greenwood section of Moosic. Mrs. Ginter was the nicest person & so was Mr. Ginter. They decorated for every holiday especially Halloween! Loved going there to see how they decorated! Years later, I brought my own children to Trick or Treat at their house. They too loved going there. They always asked if we were going to Mr. & Mrs. Ginters & Mr & Mrs loved having them in to see their decorations. My two boys send their condolences too.
