Barbara Ann Peck, age 66, a resident of the Greenwood section of Moosic, died Wednesday under the care of the VNA Hospice Inpatient Unit at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton. She is survived by her loving husband, Walter Peck, Sr. Wed on May 11, 1968, the couple were married for 45 years.
Born in Scranton on May 16, 1947, daughter of the late Cecelia and Matthew Shimshock, Barbara graduated from the former Plains Memorial High School before earning her nursing degree from the Mercedian School of Nursing in Scranton. A proud nurse with a strong work ethic, she always enjoyed her profession. She worked for both the Mercy and Geisinger Wyoming Valley Hospitals, as well working private duty. For several years, she had also volunteered with St. Ann’s Basilica Media. Of Roman Catholic faith, she was a devoted member of Divine Mercy Parish. A loving wife, mother and grandmother, she’ll never be forgotten by those who loved her.
She is survived by her children, Sherri Wagner and husband Bob of Old Forge, Wally Peck, Jr. and wife Deanna of Scranton, and Jason Peck and wife Jill of Moosic; and five grandchildren, Josh and Madison Wagner, Samantha, Brandon and Liliana Peck.
A brother, Matthew Shimshock, also preceded her in death.
Her family wishes to thank VNA Hospice Inpatient Unit’s excellent staff for all their care and kindness during Barbara’s stay.
