Lucy's family extends a special thank you to the nurses and staff of Hospice of the Sacred Heart for the care and compassion during her final months of life, and to the many doctors, nurses, and medical staff that have cared for her through her long life.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 7, 2021, in the Church of Saint Nicholas in Wilkes-Barre. Interment will be in Saint Mary's Cemetery in Hanover Township.

Condolences to the Boris family. I delivered an Easter flower from the church to Mrs. Boris a few years back. We were able to reminisce about St. Nick's, our families and Carey Ave. What a strong, faithful woman!

Lucy was a kind and caring person to me and my family. We lived across the street on Carey Ave. I have thought about her often since she moved. My condolences to all her family. May God's comfort and peace dwell with all of you.
