Obituary of Pearl Jean Hyduchak
Pearl Jean Hyduchak, age 79, of Surprise, AZ passed peacefully on March 18, 2022.
Jean was born on September 21, 1942 in Pennsylvania to the late John and Julia Matsko.
Jean graduated from Woodbridge High School in Woodbridge, NJ and attended Union County Community College. She had many experiences in life, from operating a restaurant at Lake Wallenpaupack, part time travel agent, insurance broker and Personal Lines Manager until retirement.
Jean was preceded in death by her husband Joseph in 2008 and her brother John in 1998. She is survived by her son Joseph J. Hyduchak and wife, Valerie of Hawley, PA , daughter: Melissa Duhaime and husband Ed of North Scituate, RI: six grandchildren: Benjamin, Christopher and Abigail Duhaime. Andrew and his wife Michelle, Stephen and Matthew Hyduchak, and two great grandchildren Nikola and Lukas Hyduchak.
She was raised in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, but quickly realized after her first visit to the southwest in the 1970s, that she wanted to create a home and life in Surprise, AZ. Jean wanted to wake up to the sunshine every morning and in the winter, scrape only the sunshine from her windshield. This decision brought her continued joy until her passing.
Jean will always be remembered in her wide circle of friends for her humor and sense of fun. She did not simply live life, she celebrated every moment of it. She embraced each role in life from wife to mother to businesswoman. Her most treasured role was that of a grandmother and great grandmother. Jean will be remembered by her family and all those who knew her as someone who chose to live life to its fullest until the very end.
