Obituary of Loretta Greathead

GREATHEAD, LORETTA [nee Jankauskas], 76, of Sewell, NJ passed away peacefully at her home with her family by her side on June 17, 2023.
Loretta retired as an Administrative Assistant with Towers Perrin in Philadelphia. She was kind, generous, and caring to her friends and family. Her husband Tom and their children were the center of her life, especially her beloved Granddaughter and Great-Grandaughter. She had a sense of honesty and would ‘tell it like it is‘. She never complained, taking life one step at a time, being optimistic and relying on her Roman Catholic faith in times of adversity. She had a great sense of humor, a love of board games [especially Dominos], watching soap operas, and game shows [true fan of Jeopardy], football and meatballs! A social person, she loved traveling and meeting new people, celebrations -- the 4th of July, the Irish Weekend at the Shore, Christmas [a fan of Hallmark ornaments], and in retirement the many social events at the Village of Country Gardens.

She was born in Philadelphia to the late John and Elizabeth {Mastaitis] Jankauskas on September 12, 1946, and was the loving wife of the late Thomas ‘Tom’ Greathead for 38 years. Beloved Mother of Laura Jean Greathead, Kathleen Gallagher, Janine [Doug] Yerk, Grandmother of Krystal Greathead and Great Grandmother of Abigail Greathead. Dear Sister of John [Roberta] Jankauskas, and the late Robert ‘Bob’ Jankauskas. She will be missed by her niece and nephews, cousins and friends, especially her faithful canine companion, Bailey.
