Victoria Grzenda, 93, of Archbald, passed away Wednesday, April 8, at the Jewish Home, Scranton, Pa.

She was the wife of the late Stanley Grzenda, who died March 3, 2005. Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Alfred Fitch and Amelia Hines Fitch Kisner. She attended Scranton schools and was a member of Christ the King Parish, St. Thomas Aquinas Church.

Vicki will always be loved and fondly remembered by her children, Stanley and wife, Nancy, Jessup; David and wife, Mary Kay, Walpole, Mass.; Carol Weston and her husband, Ernie, Peckville; Richard and his wife, Elaine, Lake Winola; and Jeffery and his wife, Missy, Texas. She is also survived by 13 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her brother, Alfred Fitch Jr.; her sister, Marlene Halupke; and godchild, Charlene Fitch Kirchner.

Vicki's greatest joy was her family. She enjoyed cooking Thursday night dinners and holiday celebrations. She loved caring for her grandchildren and took great pride in their accomplishments. She was most proud of being a foster mother to 65 babies from St. Joseph's Center. She also was an accomplished country singer and square dance caller. After her career, she became a homemaker which gave her the utmost pleasure.

Private services will be conducted at the convenience of the family. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

Grzenda family,

Vicki will be sorely missed. I loved her tons. I enjoyed helping her with her puzzles, assisting her to activities, and having her ask me how the weather was! She was truly the best and has made an impact on my life. She'll always be remembered.

My heartfelt condolences to Vicky's family. I always enjoyed visiting with her and seeing what puzzles she was working on! She had a great snack drawer that she raided regularly and shared often with my mother. They were room mates who watched out for each other and bingo buddies. My mom misses her, and my whole family is keeping the Grzenda family in their thoughts and prayers.
