KULPMONT - Lynne Schickley, 65, of 1106 Poplar St., went to be with her Lord and Savior Thursday, April 22, 2021, with her husband of 44 years by her side.

Born in Coal Township on March 28, 1956, she was the daughter of the late William and Carlynn (Derk) Compello. She graduated from Shamokin Area High School in 1974.

On March 5, 1977 in St. Stephens Church in Coal Township, she married the love of her life, Paul Schickley, who survives. Together they raised three children. She loved being a mom over anything else, and was also a very proud grandmother. She was also an especially proud aunt to many nieces, and nephews.

She spent much of her days with her grandchildren, and there was nothing she would not do for them, or with them. She enjoyed attending many games of the different sports they played over the years.

She spent many years working at the Kmart in Coal Township, and loved her job there. She remained friends with many of her coworkers long after it shut down.

She was a member of Oaklyn Independent Baptist church for many years, serving several different roles there during her time there.

In addition to her husband, Lynne is survived by a son, Andrew Schickley and his fiancé, Jenna Darrup of Marion Heights; two daughters, Beth Gensemer and her husband, Greg of Kulpmont, and Molly Schickley of Lewisburg; three grandsons, Jackson Gensemer, Caleb Gensemer, and Embry Gensemer; a granddaughter, Sophia Schickley; a sister, Marsha Fisher of Florida; two brothers-in-law, Robert Idacavage, and Lee Sieklicki and his wife, Linda; two sisters-in-law, Judy Kalinowski, and Susan Klemick and her husband George; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. In addition to her parents, Lynne was preceded in death by her father and mother-in-law, Leon and Mary (Madl) Sieklicki; a sister, Karen Compello Idacavage; two brothers-in-law, Michael Fisher, and Ronald Sieklicki; an Aunt, Lorraine Zimmerman and her husband, Jack; and her four-legged best friend, Cozmo.

I am so sad to be told of your passing cousin. We had so looked forward to being together at our upcoming sister/cousin vacation. Your effervescence and kindness was fun and inspirational. I will always remember the fun we had and shenanigans we got into as kids including riding the rides at Knoebels and swimming at the pool when I would visit Shamokin for two weeks every summer. Sending love and hugs to your family. May they be comforted by their memories and the knowledge that your faith has placed you in the arms of our heavenly father. Please give Don a huge hug from me! I love you
