Antoinette Eve Jaditz, 91, of Clarks Summit, passed away Wednesday, January 25. Born in Brooklyn, PA, daughter of Anthony and Scholastica Sklanka, she was the youngest of nine children. After graduating from Brooklyn High she moved to Dickson City in 1936 and became a beautician, working in Bethlehem prior to marrying her husband, Ted, in 1945. They enjoyed 62 years together before he passed away in 2008. She was the mother of five children, Barb, Sue, Mary Lou, Steve and Ted; grandmother of 13 and great-grandmother of seven. She eventually became a self-employed beautician in Clarks Summit, and had many long lasting relationships with her customers. Her shop was forum for debate, idea exchange and a source of personal fulfillment and enjoyment for her. A gifted seamstress and excellent cook and canner, she dressed her children in stylish clothing and preserved the fruits of the home garden. She was very proud of her family and emphasized education, hard work and thrift. The family wishes to thank the staff of Willowbrook Care Facility and Abington Manor for the diligent care and attention they gave to Eve. Arrangements are entrusted to the care of the Lawrence E. Young Funeral Home, 418 S. State St., Clarks Summit. To send online condolences, visit .
