Mary Lucille Serniak, 89, Mayfield, died Sunday at Allied Hospice, Scranton. Her husband was the late Nicholas J. Serniak.
Born in Mayfield, daughter of the late Louis and Mary Rhoda Orlando, she was a devout member of Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary Church, Jermyn, and its altar and rosary society. Mary enjoyed being a mother / grandmother while caring for the needs of everyone she came in contact with. It was impossible to visit her home without being offered something to eat or drink. Her zest for life was contagious to all who came to know and love her. As much as the doctors tried, they could never heal the the broken heart Mary had after the loss of her daughter Barbara.
The family would like to thank Dr. Martin Penetar, the staff at Traditional Home Healthcare, and Allied Hospice for their kindness.
Surviving are two sons: Michael Serniak and wife Mary, Mayfield; Nicholas Serniak and wife Suzanne, Jermyn; five grandchildren: Kimberly Collins and husband Jeremy; Michael Serniak; Matthew Serniak; Dr. Nicholas Serniak; Kristopher Serniak and wife Rachel; four great-grandchildren: Marcus, Emily, Alexandra, and Maxwell Collins; one sister: Angela Burke, Maryland; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by a daughter: Barbara Ann Serniak; and a brother in law: Donald E. Burke Sr.
The funeral will be Tuesday with Mass of Christian Burial at 10:30 a.m. in Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary Church, Jermyn. Viewing will be from 9:30 a.m. until 10:15 a.m. at the church. Interment, Calvary Cemetery, Mayfield. Due to current public health recommendations, masks and social distancing will be required.
