Michalene Ferack, 58, of Avoca, died Wednesday at the Hospice Unit at Regional Hospital of Scranton. She is survived by her husband, John Ferack. They had celebrated their 30th anniversary on June 18, 2013.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born in Scranton, daughter of the late Robert and Dorothy Olshefski Travis, she was a graduate of Mid Valley High School, graduated from the University of Scranton and attained a master's degree in microbiology. She was a corporate microbiologist at Preferred Meal Systems, Moosic, and a member of SS. Peter and Paul Church, Avoca.
To all who knew Michalene, her number-one priority was her family. Her kids were her life and she would do anything for them. Her husband John was her soul mate. No matter how hard times got, they always stood by each other and got through any situation together. When Michalene got sick, her husband and kids came together and did whatever they had to do to try and get her better. Michalene loved her pets and going to the casino with grandma. Her family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Lisa Thomas and her staff, especially Megan.
