Jade Marie Mattern, 20

November 9, 2001 - June 07, 2022

Jade entered the gates of heaven on June 7, 2022, chaperoned by her little brother C J, Uncle Hector, and baby cousin Alexander. She is survived by her loving mother, Darby Mattern, and father, Antonio Giannattasio of New Providence, as well as two little sisters, Tia and Michaela Grant, and brothers, Tyson and Antonio Jr.

Also surviving are her grandparents, Kim and Randy Miller, Herbert and Anne Mattern and Vito and Enidcintron. She leaves behind her aunts, Dusty Mendez “mom mom”, Crystal Terry, Lyndsay Gall, Jaime “Wolf” and Laura; her uncles, Brad Mattern and Ben Terry; and so many loving cousins raised as siblings – Dominic, Darius, Haili, Kelvin, Jaevion, Gigi, Xzandre, Gage, Jordan and Ashlyn, along with too many friends to name.

Everyone that knew Jade loved her! She was happy with a coke slushy, a pickle, beef sticks, and a twirly for days. A notebook and black marker were always in Jade’s plans. She could brighten anyone’s day with a slap of a twirly as you walked by! She is loved beyond measure and will be missed beyond words.

Services will be held at 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 12, 2022, at the Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA 17543, where a viewing will take place from 2 – 4 PM. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Jade’s memory can be made to Hospice & Community Care, 625 Good Drive, Lancaster, PA 17604-4125.

To the entire family and all those who love Jade; on behalf of all of us at Faith Friendship Ministries, we extend our deepest sympathies and promise of prayers as you seek the comfort of God. Jade brought so much joy to all who encountered her and it is this truth and the beauty of her life that we pray brings you comfort in the days to come. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and so while we do not understand the passing of such a precious gift, know that you are not alone.
Love,
Your Family at Faith Friendship Ministries
Psalm 147:3
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
 
1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 NIV
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

Miss Jade was the life of any group. She knew how to make anyone laugh, and had a whole lotta sass. She never missed a beat in reminding me she needed more pickles with her lunch. 
I will always treasure my memories with Jade. She made a bag impact in the short time I was able to know her. 
 
to the family- my thoughts are with you all. Jade will continue to live on in the strong spirit she has and the marks she’s left on our hearts.

It was always a pleasure to see Jade when she arrived at Manheim Central High School. We would say hi.  Loved her smile. She shared a class with my daughter, Alana. Alana enjoyed being with Jade at school. They had fun together. I’m so so sorry for your loss. I wish we could turn back time, pause it and stay there forever. Alana R’s dad.
