Patricia Ann Jebbia (Pat) of Wheeling, WV passed away on November, 16, 2021. She was an elegant, kind, generous woman and a caring wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend.
She was born to Mildred and Harry Ray McCallister on November 14,1930. She is survived by her daughter Lynn, sons Paul (Carol) and Geno (Robyn), beloved grandson Josh (Jill), granddaughters Dr. Josie Znidarsic (John) and Jenny O’Dell (Darin), great granddaughters Keira O’Dell, Clara and Hattie Znidarsic, sister Sharon Hickman (Duck) and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Eugene (Gene) and brother Dale McCallister.
Pat co-founded Jebbia’s Market in Wheeling in 1967 with husband Eugene (Gene). They were fortunate enough to have their sons Paul and Geno, the current owners, work with them in the business from the beginning. They grew Jebbia’s Market from a small, quaint corner fruit market to what it is today. Daughter Lynn created the deli in the market.
Despite the fact that she only traveled west of the Mississippi twice and only came face to face with a horse a couple of times, Pat’s favorite pastime was watching cowboy movies. She loved watching any western, but especially the old ones on the classic movie stations, even more than QVC in her last years. She loved being in Florida in the winter and will be missed by her neighbors and friends. Happy Trails, Dear Pat.
