Jean Straffi Obituary

Jean Edith Straffi, age 100 of Eastlake, Ohio passed away January 31, 2024 at Brookdale Senior Living in Lawrenceville, Georgia.

A funeral Mass will be held at St. Justin Martyr Catholic Church in Eastlake, Ohio on Tuesday, April 16, 2024 at 10:00 A.M. with private interment at Lakeview Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio. Services will be officiated by Jean’s long time pastor, Fr. Kevin Liebhardt.

Jean was born May 4, 1923 to Louis (Luigi) Straffi & Francesca Falcone in Starford, Pennsylvania. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Barbara (Haddad) & Lynn Putrich of Flowery Branch, Georgia; grandchildren, Gayle Putrich and John Putrich & his wife, Allison Whitfield; great-granddaughter, Margaret (Maggie) Putrich; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Jean was preceded in death by her parents and beloved stepfather, Alfred Naticchia; her son, Edward Haddad, Jr.; sisters, Linda Brown and Julia Allen; and brother, Samuel Naticchia.

She graduated from Collinwood High School, Cleveland, Ohio in 1941, but never lost her love of learning. Over the years, Jean took many classes, such as enameling on copper, ceramics, Spanish, and Chinese. She was noted for her cake decorating skills and was called upon by family and friends for birthdays and showers. Jean loved opera, particularly anything by her favorite opera star, Luciano Pavarotti. She also enjoyed gardening and grew copious amounts of tomatoes, zucchini, and herbs.

Jean spent the majority of her working life in the banking and mortgage industry. She retired from Women’s Federal Savings & Loan, Cleveland, Ohio in 1988, as the mortgage loan officer at the main office after 22 years of service.

The family would like to acknowledge and thank the staff at Brookdale Sr. Living in Lawrenceville, Georgia; Atlanta Family Hospice; and Memorial Park South Funeral Home in Flowery Branch, Georgia for their care, kindness, and assistance these last months.

Jean will be missed by her family and friends in Georgia and Ohio, particularly by her friends and staff at Parker Place Retirement Living in Mentor, Ohio.
