Marion Koronkiewicz (nee Piasecki) of Chatham, N.J,, passed away peacefully with her daughter at her side on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, at Sunrise Assisted Living facility in Madison, N.J.

Born a coal miner's daughter, Sept. 24, 1934, to the late Frank and Stella Piasecki, she grew up in Nanticoke with three sisters, the late Irene, Isabel and Eleanor.

Marion received a registered nurse degree at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1956. In 1959, she married the late Frank G. Koronkiewicz, pharmacist and owner of Koronkiewicz Pharmacy. She and her husband were both very active in the community and St. Stanislaus Church. Marion volunteered with various organizations including Meals on Wheels and worked as an operating room nurse at Mercy Hospital in Wilkes-Barre and then the American Red Cross at blood drives.

She loved to polka, going to Broadway shows, and spending time with her family and friends. She had a great sense of humor and enjoyed telling stories.

Surviving are her son, Frank (wife, Susan); grandchildren, Amanda and Frankie, Albuquerque, N.M.; and Michael and Joseph Haley, Swoyersville; son, Paul (wife, Jessica); and grandson Ross, Palisades, N.Y.; and daughter Karen, Chatham, N.J.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider supporting organizations helping to turn the tide against diseases that directly impacted Marion's life like breast cancer and Lewy Body Disease.
