Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Ann (Hickey) Lemoncelli, 57, a lifelong resident of West Side and a member of St. Patrick’s parish, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, September 25, 2019.
Married on April 27, 1991, she is survived by her best friend and beloved husband of 28 years, Enrico Lemoncelli.
Born on June 15, 1962, Ann was the daughter of the late Eugene F. Hickey, former Mayor of Scranton, and Margaret Harding Hickey. She graduated from the former Bishop Hannan High School and studied at Marywood College before attending Community Medical Center’s School of Nursing.
In 1984 she began a 17 year career with the U.S. Postal Service and for the past 18 years she served as a data quality analyst for the U.S. Probation Office.
She had a heart of gold, willing and eager to help anyone in need. All who knew Ann will remember her as the life of the party and for her infectious smile, outgoing nature and ability to make a friend with anyone who crossed her path. She left an indelible mark on everyone she ever met.
She was proud of all of the accomplishments of her children and loved to visit them wherever their lives have taken them.
She enjoyed traveling especially her yearly trips to Detroit with her husband, “Go Lions!”, and her Atlantic City trips with her “older” friends. FLY HIGH FREE BIRD!
Her love for life will never be forgotten, and with her final selfless act Ann’s donation to the Gift of Life Program will ensure her kindness will live on through others.
She is also survived by her children, Melinda Marvin and husband Josh of Nicholson, Atty. Jay Michael Lemoncelli and companion Anna Nguyen of Wilmington, Delaware and Dr. Megan Lemoncelli of Temecula, California; her siblings, Atty. Eugene F. Hickey, II and wife Elaine of Juneau, Alaska, Marie Hickey of Gainesville, Virginia, Cathy Dolinish and husband P.J. of Scranton and Margi Cummings and husband Patrick of Roaring Brook Twp.; an aunt, Cathy Gallagher of Scranton; brothers-in-law, Peter Lemoncelli and wife Lorine of Port Griffith and Paul Lemoncelli and wife Diane of Clarks Summit; nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.
A sister, Romayne Hickey; a brother-in-law, Ronald Pelkey; and mother-in-law and father-in-law, Rigo and Enrica Lemoncelli, also preceded Ann in death.

Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton, followed a 10:00AM Mass of Christian Burial at St. Patrick’s Church, 1403 Jackson Street, to be celebrated by Rev. Richard Fox, Pastor.
