Ronnie Lynn Masters, 66, died Thursday at Regional Hospital of Scranton after a courageous three-year battle with cancer. Her husband of 44 years, James D. Masters, died Jan. 12, 2013.
Born in Clarks Summit on June 26, 1947, she was the daughter of the late Ralph and Bertha Lytle. She was a graduate of Abington Heights High School and had been employed by the Taylor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and the Scranton Health Care Center before retirement.
Ronnie was a loving wife, mother and sister who had a great love for people. The biggest joy of her life was her grandson, Jeremy Tobin, with whom she loved spending countless hours walking in the park and engaging in playful activities. She was his biggest "fan."
Ronnie's family would like to extend a special thank you to her dear friend, Marie, for her kindness and support during Ronnie's illness.
Surviving are a daughter, Linda Tobin and husband, Patrick, Taylor; a son, James, Scranton; a grandson, Jeremy Tobin; a sister, Grace Martinsen, Clarks Summit; a brother, Ralph Lytle, Clarks Summit; a brother-in-law, Jack Logan, Tunkhannock; a sister-in-law, Kathleen Flower, Mountaintop; several nieces and nephews.
