Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Anne E. (Woelkers) Maffei, age 88, a Dunmore native and formerly of Duryea, passed away Thursday after a three-years stay at Oakwood Terrace in Moosic. Her beloved family was right by her side.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 30 years, Joseph F. Maffei, on October 26, 2012.
Born in Dunmore on January 24, 1933 and daughter of the late Leo. C., Sr. and Catherine (Krupar) Woelkers, Anne was a graduate of Dunmore High School, Class of 1951. She worked as a cigar manufacturer for the former Waitt & Bond, Inc. before enjoying her role as a lab worker for Frichtel and Rink Optical before working at Specialty Printers, each in Scranton, prior to her well-earned retirement. Although she possessed an amazing work ethic, she loved every single day of her work.
She was a skilled quilter and collector of many things, including dolls and coins, and her wardrobe collection was second to none.
A novice photographer, Anne absolutely loved taking photos. She leaves behind an infinite amount of pictures she had taken wherever and whenever she had the opportunity, capturing countless memories throughout the years.
She was faithful to the Pennsylvania Daily Lotto and certainly wouldn’t turn down a good scratch-off ticket. She absolutely loved cruises, especially to Bermuda, having taken fourteen of them over time.
An adored mother, grandmother and great grandmother, she will be dearly missed by her loved ones.
She is survived by her loving family, including her daughters, Karyn Anne Saxe and husband William of Taylor and Cathy Foley of Dunmore; five grandchildren, John Boniewicz and wife Alicia of Dunmore, Kerry Eye and husband Alex of N.C., Michael Boniewicz of Jessup, Sara Foley-McGinty and fiance Jared Kostelnick of N.Y. and Zachary Foley-McGinty of Va.; three great grandchildren, Brielle, Casen and Landon and a great granddaughter on her way; two sisters, Sylvia Sands of Scranton and Vivian Kloss of East Stroudsburg; and many nieces and nephews.
She was also preceded in death by seven siblings, Leo C. Woelkers, Jr., Frank “Honey” Woelkers, Catherine Westerhold, Dolores Rusnok, Gloria Fahy, Joan Davis and Marie Nimeth.
Her family wishes to both acknowledge and thank Dr. Martin Moran and also the entire staffs of Oakwood Manor and Hospice of the Sacred Heart for their care and compassion throughout Anne’s illness.
Funeral services are scheduled to begin on Tuesday at 9:00 AM from the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, with a 10:00 AM Mass of Christian Burial at St. Barbara’s Parish, 28 Memorial Street in Exeter, to be celebrated by Rev. Michael Finn, Pastor. Burial will follow at St. John the Baptist Cemetery in Exeter.
Family and friends may pay their respects on Monday between 4-7:00 PM at the funeral home.
