Frances Monchak, 93, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, Dec. 29, in the St. Luke's Miner Memorial Hospital Geriatric Center, Coaldale, where she resided.
Born in Clifton, N.J., she was a daughter of the late Onuphry and to Margaret (Sakkon) Monchak.
In 1921, the family relocated to Coaldale, where Frances attended the former Coaldale High School until 1935, when the family returned to New Jersey, first residing in Garfield and then Paterson.
She lived in Passaic, N.J., and worked for U.S. Rubber and other employers until her retirement in 1980, in which she then returned to reside in Coaldale.
She was a lover of etiquette, manners and courtesy, and loved to serve others. In her younger years, she was an avid bowler and a life member of the "R Club," the Russian Orthodox Youth Club Chapter at large.
In retirement, she was a member of the Panther Valley Woman's Club and the Coaldale 175th Planning Committee. Her greatest involvement was as a volunteer at St. Luke's Miner Memorial Hospital, where she was honored for well over 1,000 hours of volunteer service.
She was also preceded in death by two sisters, Olga Monchak and Vera (Monchak, Hollar) Kruczek; and a brother, John Monchak.
Surviving are a nephew, George Hollar, and his wife, Joan, and their children, Michael Hollar, James Hollar and Caitlin Weaver, all of Summit Hill; two sisters, Mary Munkacsy of Paterson and Sonya, wife of John Halecky of Summit, N.J.; other nephews and a niece and their spouses and children: Fred Hollar, John Mark Monchak, John Halecky III and Nadiene Quaglia; and a sister-in-law, Olya Monchak.
