Jayne Katherine Schatz, 53, of 1417 Rosely Road, St. Marys, passed away Saturday, March 26, 2022, at Penn Highlands DuBois, after a lengthy illness.

She was born August 26, 1968, in St. Marys, daughter of Linda Francis Fritz, who survives of St. Marys, and the late James “Wilbur” Fritz, who passed away January 17, 2011. Jayne was a lifelong resident of St. Marys, a graduate of St. Marys Area High School, Class of 1986, and was a former employee at Eastern Sintered Alloys.

On July 1, 1989, in Queen of the World Church, Jayne married Lee J. Schatz, who survives.

In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents: Ruth and James Fritz, Sr.; her maternal grandparents: Evelyn and Frank Francis; and her father-in-law, Walter Schatz.

Jayne was a fighter and battled declining health from Multiple Sclerosis with positivity and a spirit was admired by all that knew her. She had a great sense of humor, beautiful blue eyes, and a smile that lit up the room. She enjoyed a good yard sale and had an expertise finding quality jewelry. Music was important to Jayne and enjoyed watching music videos. She would take photographs of nature and loved her pets. Above all else, Jayne loved her family and cherished her time with them.

A private visitation and funeral service will be held at a future date.

Memorials if desired may be made to the Elk County Humane Society, 1029 E. Eschbach Road, St. Marys, PA 15857.

    When my mother passed away, we found the resurrection hope very comforting.
