Marion J. Rempe, age 83, a lifelong resident of Scranton, passed away Tuesday at Hospice of the Sacred Heart Inpatient Unit, Dunmore, after an illness.
Born on September 10, 1934, and daughter of the late Lillian and William Rempe, Marion was a graduate of the former Scranton Central High School, Class of 1952. She became a Certified Nurses Aide after studying at The Scranton State Hospital’s School of Nursing, before working at the same hospital for many years. Upon the hospital’s closure she worked at The Jewish Home of Eastern Pa., prior to her retirement. Of Roman Catholic faith, she was a longtime member of St. John Neumann Parish, Nativity section of Scranton.
Marion led a full and active life, spending time with her family, dancing at the Dupont VFW, cooking and baking, and rooting for the New England Patriots and, of course, star quarterback Tom Brady. She was an avid reader, especially Daniel Steele novels, and enjoyed watching ‘ol time movies and musicals. Above all, she was family-oriented. She adored her siblings, nieces and nephews, cousins and relatives and will never be forgotten by her loved ones. “I love you more.”
She is survived by her dear siblings, Joan Rempe, Frank Rempe and wife Phyllis and Eugene Rempe all of Scranton; brother-in-law, Robert Eastman of Moosic; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Siblings, Richard Rempe and Arlene Eastman; and a sister-in-law, Marion Edmunds Rempe, also preceded her in death.
Her family wishes to thank both Drs. Phillip Boccagno and Christopher Dressel, Jr., for the unforgettable care and amazing compassion given to both Marion and her family.
A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for Monday at 9:30AM in the Holy Name of Jesus Church, 1414 East Elm Street on Scranton’s East Mountain, to be celebrated by Rev. Michael Bryant, Pastor. Burial will follow at the Cathedral Cemetery, West Scranton.
Viewing will be private and those attending the funeral are asked to go directly to the church.
With sincerest gratitude for all their incredible staff did for Marion in her final days, the family asks that memorial contributions be made in Marion’s name to Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 600 Baltimore Drive, # 7, Wilkes-Barre, Pa., 18702.
Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
