Kathleen Hart, L.P.N., age 65, of Carbondale and a West Scranton native, passed away Sunday at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore, after a recent illness.
Born on April 16, 1954, and raised in West Scranton, Kathy was the daughter of the late James Patrick and Gertrude Watts Hart. A graduate of West Scranton Central Catholic High School, Kathy then studied at (what is now) Career Technology Center of Lackawanna County. Upon graduation, she became a Licensed Practical Nurse, beginning a career in health care, which spanned over 45 years. Holding various positions in the nursing industry, she cared for her patients as though they were family.
Kathy possessed both an amazing work ethic and a selfless nature that stood as the foundation for her career in nursing. Above all else came spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren (“traveling nana”). She loved family get-togethers, cooking, sewing (Christmas stockings) and caring for others before herself. She’ll be forever missed by her loved ones.
A faithful Roman Catholic, she was a lifelong member of St. Patrick’s Parish in West Scranton.
She is survived by her three daughters, Elena Nitecki and husband Victor of Matamoras, Cristina Holtzinger and husband Chris of Lemoyne and Caroline Harrison and husband Nathan of Bayonne, N.J.; her seven siblings, Patrick Hart of Carbondale, James Hart of Scranton, John Hart of Scranton, Thomas Hart and wife Lori of Dunmore, Ann Hart of Scranton, Colleen Hart of Scranton and Maryann Cadden and husband Patrick of Scranton; her six grandchildren, Draven, Rylee, Chase, Connor, Lucas and Erin; and many nieces and nephews.
An infant son, Ansel; her husband, Ansel Gomez; and two siblings, Leo Hart and Eileen Hankinson, preceded her in death.
A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for Friday at 11:00AM at Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel, 1605 Oram Street in West Scranton, to be celebrated by Rev. Richard Fox, Pastor. Burial will follow at Cathedral Cemetery.
Family and friends may pay their respects at the church on Friday from 10:00AM until services. Those attending the funeral are asked to go directly to church.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Kathy’s name to Hospice of the Sacred Heart’s Memorial Fund c/o 600 Baltimore Dr # 7, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702.
Arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton. Please visit the funeral home’s website for directions or to leave a condolence.
