Margaret Ann O'Fier, 85, formerly of Falls, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, on Thursday, March 14, 2019, in the Jewish Home of Eastern PA, Scranton.

Born in Pittston, on Nov. 21, 1933, she was the daughter of the late Edward C. and Anna (Novak) Markert. She was a graduate of St. John the Evangelist High School, Pittston, class of 1951.

Margie was very devout; she was a longtime member of the Discalced Carmelites of Holy Annunciation Secular Group, Sugarloaf, Pa. One of the biggest highlights of her life was her trip to Medjugorje.

In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her husband, Philip (Sonny) O'Fier; and brother, Robert Markert.

Surviving are her children, Rachel Spott (Fred), Dalton; Chris O'Fier, Tunkhannock; Steve O'Fier (Sue Natt), West Pittston; and Mary Ann Yanchuk (Tony), Bear Creek; granddaughters, Mikayla and Rebekah Spott, Dalton; sister, Ann Marie Willis, Falls; and numerous nieces and nephews.
