Nicole Thomas, 22, of Clarks Summit, passed away Friday afternoon at Geisinger Community Medical Center.

She was born in Scranton on September 2, 1991. She was a graduate of the Jefferson Center on June 11, 2013. She loved people, was a social butterfly, and was very determined.

She is survived by her grandmother and caregiver, Louisa Thomas; and her aunt and caregiver, Tina Lysak, both of Clarks Summit; brother, Michael Thomas, Taylor; mother, Tammy Thomas and her father, Michael Motovidlac, both of Wilkes-Barre.

She was preceded in death by her uncle, Jeff Lysak; a nephew, Gabriel Thomas; maternal great-grandparents, Martha and Carl Balliet Sr.; and grandfather, Charles Thomas.

Nicole's life was touched by many loving hands, from Early Intervention, UCP in Clarks Summit, Mayfield and Dunmore elementary schools, Jefferson Center and St. Joe's Day Care Center. The family will always be grateful to Scranton Counseling, Hershey Medical Center, Danville Regional Medical Center, Geisinger Community Medical Center and the many nurses, doctors and van drivers. The family deeply appreciates all of the tender loving care expressed to Nicole.
