Mary Kuznicki Pratz, 92, of Nanticoke passed away peacefully Monday, March 24, 2014, at the Celtic Hospice inpatient unit at Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre.

She was born in Nanticoke on Aug. 12, 1921, a daughter of the late Joseph and Frances Michno Kuznicki. Mary graduated from Nanticoke High School in 1938.

A life-long resident of Nanticoke, Mary worked in local factories for many years. She was a member of St. Faustina Kowalska Parish and formerly Holy Trinity Church prior to the consolidation of parishes.

Mary loved to garden and crochet. If you ever visited Mary, you would most likely find her in her garden where she would gladly show you the flowers currently in bloom. Over the years she made hundreds of crocheted hats and scarves for needy school children and newborns in the hospital as well as lap covers for nursing home residents. She often went to her doctor appointments with crocheted gifts for the nursing staff.

Her husband, Andrew, passed away on Dec. 4, 1982. She was also preceded in death by her son, Andrew; brothers, John and Henry Kuznicki; and sisters, Helen Yankoski, Josephine Sulewski, Ann (Lottie) Torre and Frances Krynick.

She is survived by her daughter, Jeanette Ulanoski and her husband, Robert, of Atascadero, Calif.; a sister, Theresa Arbchesky of Larksville; three grandchildren, Lynn Galgan, Andrew Pratz and Cole Ulanoski; four great-grandchildren, John and Riley Galgan and Ashley and Melody Pratz; as well as nieces and nephews.

A private memorial service will be held in the future at the convenience of the family. There will be no calling hours.

Arrangements are being handled by Davis-Dinelli Funeral Home, 170 E. Broad St., Nanticoke.
