Jean H. Mazzoni Huffman

August 31, 1921 - June 16, 2017 Kennett Square, PA | Age 95 Loving Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother and Great-Great-Grandmother

Jean H. Mazzoni Huffman, age 95, of Kennett Square, PA, died Friday, June 16, 2017, at Linden Hall nursing facility in Kennett Square. She was the wife of the late Clarence T. Huffman who died in 2001, and with whom she shared 52 years of marriage. Born in Kennett Square, she was a daughter of the late Dominick and the late Domenica (DiFilippo) Mazzoni.

Jean lived her entire life in the Kennett borough and was endeared to the close-knit Kennett community. She was employed at NVF Company in Kennett where she met her husband. After their marriage in December 1949, she enjoyed being a full-time homemaker and was meticulous about maintaining her home. She loved working outdoors and was often seen raking in the summer and fall, and even enjoyed shoveling snow in the winter. She loved reading, especially the local and County newspapers which she read from cover to cover. She enjoyed music and would often sing along when her daughter played songs on the piano. Jean was an avid animal lover, especially cats, dogs, and horses. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, providing an ample amount of love and support for them.

Survivors include her daughter Jeanne Huffman of Kennett Square, PA; her son Lawrence Huffman of West Chester, PA; five grandchildren, Susie Huffman of New Castle, DE, Joe Huffman of Newark, DE, Shannon Huffman of Wilmington, DE, Lewis Huffman of Middletown, DE, and Tony Rapone of Middletown, DE; four great-grandchildren; Angela, Jessie, Jack and Joshua; two great great grandchildren, Kason and Aria; two sisters, Mary Tomasovich of Coatesville, PA, and Elizabeth Troyan of Kennett Square, and two brothers, Jimmy and Johnny Mazzoni of Kennett Square.

  2. Jeanne and family – I am so truly sorry about your mom but I am so very thankful and blessed that I got to develop a friendship with the both of you over the past couple of years! Your mom was an amazing person! She had a warm and inviting smile of a wonderful mother and grandmother! You could just tell that she was someone who would be compassionate and would always be there to listen and somehow make everything alright! I will always remember the two of you coming into Giordanos on a Saturday or Sunday. She would always feel right at home and proceed to a table of her choice (and she was very fast with that walker coming or going)! And, boy, did she look beautiful! Her nails were painted, lipstick was on, hair was done and her jewelry was coordinated with her dress! We all enjoyed her company! She was so clever and funny it was hard to believe she was 95! The two of you had such a deep mother and daughter bond of love and caring which was evident whenever you were together! She will be so missed but as a verse from one of my favorite songs says she’s “going Home where the streets are golden and every chain is broken.” I know that God will grant you peace and comfort to help you through this “eye” of the storm.

  3. I have not known Jean for the fifty plus years like the rest of the Kennett gang, but the few years I have were special. I have fond memories of our ‘happy hour’ evenings on the deck at the Huffman house. She was always full of smiles for everyone while she enjoyed her rum and coke. She would ask how you were and took sincere interest in your answer. Mark and I will miss her, but we have those memories.
