Agnes Novotka Gursky, 89, and a lifelong resident of the Lincoln Heights section of Taylor, died Sunday morning at Scranton Health Care Center, where she had recently resided. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 68 years, Henry (Joker) Gursky, on October 3, 2014.
Born on July 15, 1926, Agnes was the daughter of the late John and Josephine Novotka. Educated at the former Taylor High School, she worked in the local garment industry, retiring from Linden Dress Factory. Of Roman Catholic faith, she was a lifelong member of SS Peter and Paul Church in West Scranton and also a member of the Zonta Club. Her greatest joy came while spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, during memorable parties she threw for all occassions. She will always be missed.
She is survived by three children, John (Jack) Gursky and companion, Genine Davis, Old Forge; Daniel Gursky and wife, Joan, Washington, N.J.; and Geanine Giglio and husband, Magisterial District Judge Ted Giglio, Old Forge; siblings, Henry Novotka of St. Petersburg, Florida, Henrietta Golembeski of Scranton, Gertrude Stone of Scranton and Marie Snyder of Old Forge; eight grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
A granddaughter, Denise Perry; a daughter-in-law, Margaret Gursky; and siblings, Teddy and Edward Novotka and Helen Savinelli, also preceded her in death.
Her family wishes to thank both the staffs of Scranton Health Care Center and Hospice of the Sacred Heart for their care and compassion to both Agnes and her family throughout the years.
The funeral will be Wednesday at 8:45 a.m. from the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 517 N. Main St., with Mass of Christian Burial at 9:30 in SS. Peter and Paul Church, 1309 W. Locust St., Scranton, to be celebrated by the Rev. Sam J. Ferretti, pastor. Interment will follow in the parish cemetery.
