Lisa Marie Cokely

Lisa Marie Cokely, 41, of Scranton, died Wednesday in Regional Hospital of Scranton.

Born in Scranton, daughter of Paula Stallo Konopski and Joseph Konopski, Scranton, she was a member of Revival Baptist Church. She was educated in Scranton public schools and a graduate of Scranton Technical High School. Before her illness, she was employed by Dust Buster Inc.

Lisa was a loving, caring and compassionate mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. She loved nothing more than spending time with her family. Lisa was an amazing mother, who enjoyed every moment spent with her son, Brandon, wrestling matches, restaurants and shopping. Lisa was a loving aunt who listened and enjoyed long talks with her niece, Chrisha. They had a very strong bond and deep love for one another and she also looked forward to spending time with her nephew, Douglas, and niece, Isabella, when they traveled in from Virginia. We will all treasure every special moment of time we had with her. Lisa was an old soul; she enjoyed the simple things in life. She looked forward to Monday nights so she could cheer on her favorite wrestlers on WWE Monday Night RAW or sitting with her mother watching lifetime movies, "Golden Girls" and "Who's the Boss?" Lisa had a love for dancing and music, whether at home with family or a girls' night out with friends.

The family would like to express a very special thank you to Dr. Linda Barrasse at Great Valley Cardiology, and the doctors, nurses and staff at Regional Hospital for their exceptional caring and concern for Lisa. A special thank you to Darlene Czaja, an incredible family friend whom Lisa loved very much, for her love and support.

Also surviving are a son, Brandon Cokely, Scranton; three sisters, Kimberly Cokely, Scranton; Paulette Morgan, Virginia; and Tara Konopski, Scranton; nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Paul and Joan Stallo; and grandmother, Jeanette Nealon.

The funeral will be Saturday at 6 p.m. in the Thomas J. Hughes Funeral Home Inc., 1240 St. Ann's St., Scranton, with services by Pastor Randy Bloem, Revival Baptist Church. Interment, private, Cathedral Cemetery.

Friends may call Saturday, 4 until time of service.
