Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Catherine “Kay” Gedman, a lifelong resident of Scranton, passed away on Sunday the 8th of December at Allied Services Hospice Center after a hard-fought two month battle against cancer. Her best friend and husband of 49 years is Chuck Gedman. Kay and Chuck would have celebrated 50 years of love and happiness together on April 11th, 2020.
Kay was born on April 11th, 1947. She graduated from St. Patricks School, and later went on to receive her associates degree at Lackawanna Junior College. She gained employment in medical records at Moses Taylor Hospital, and later Mercy Hospital. She retired at the end of her career as the director of medical records from Lackawanna County Health Center.
Kay spent her time using her talents of crocheting to make hats, scarves, and blankets to gift to their many family friends with newborns. She also spent her time cooking and baking.
Kay was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother who spread happiness to everyone who was lucky enough to have known her. Some of Kays most cherished memories come from her yearly family vacations in Wildwood Crest, NJ where she spent time with her family, and friends who have become extended family over the years.
Kay was preceded in death by her parents Joseph and Angela Carroll, as well as her father and mother-in-law Charles and Helen Gedman. She is survived by her sons: Charles Gedman and wife Georgianne and Joseph Gedman. Her sisters: Eloise Bartosh, Joan Carroll, Christine Zwick and husband Joe, brother David Carroll and husband Jay Seguin. She is also survived by her grandchildren Jon Smerecky and wife Jennifer, Sydney, McKenzie, Joseph Jr., and Jaxon Gedman, as well as her many nieces and nephews.
The Gedman family would like to extend their gratitude to William Conaboy, and the nursing staff at Allied Services Hospice Center.

Relatives and friends may pay their respects at the church on Thursday from 9:30AM until Mass. Arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton.
