Marie Walker Obituary

Marie Walker, 88, of Hazleton passed away Friday evening at St. Luke Pavilion.

She was the daughter of the late Anthony and Rose Walker. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Dolores Walker.

Marie attended Hazleton Area High School and was employed as a technician by Sentinal Electronics, Hazleton. She was a member of Most Precious Blood Church.

Marie was an excellent cook and she especially enjoyed making her favorite desserts, which her family and friends always looked forward to.

She was a very kind and helpful person, always willing to give a helping hand when needed. She had a great sense of humor and we could always count on her to keep the conversation fun and interesting.

She is survived by her sisters, Jeanette and her husband, Joseph Zarowsky; Gloria Yenshaw; Gerri Tolerico and Barbara Bast; and nieces and nephews, Lisa Novotny, Donnie Tolerico, Joseph and Eileen Zarowsky, Dr. Mark and Stephanie Lobitz, Tony and Carin Yenshaw, Gary and Gina Rentz, Dennis and Krista Labrasca, and Thomas and Angela Iocabellis.

The family thanks Dr. Mark Lobitz and his wife, Stephanie, and office staff, St. Luke Pavilion Skilled Nursing Facility-Hazleton, Lehigh Valley Hospital-Hazleton emergency room doctors, nurses and staff for their excellent care for Marie and all their kindness and concern for her family at this difficult time. It was greatly appreciated.

Friends are invited to attend the Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. Wednesday in Most Precious Blood Church. Interment will follow in Most Precious Blood Cemetery.
