Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Elaine (Kokosinski) Scavo, age 76 and a lifelong resident of Taylor, passed away Sunday evening at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton. She was preceded in death by her husband, Louis Scavo, on April 13, 1997. A beloved daughter whom Elaine had a special connection to, Nicole Scavo-Powell, also preceded her in death on Oct. 28, 2017.
Born on June 4, 1945, and raised in Taylor, Elaine was the daughter of the late Charles and Mary (Zielinsky) Kokosinski. A graduate of the former Taylor High School, she served as a physical therapy aide for Allied Services, prior to her retirement.
Devoted to her children and grandson, she was a strong woman who was certainly unapologetic for who she was.
She previously attended St. George’s Orthodox Church in Taylor.
She is survived by her loving daughters, Nadine Cali and husband, Frank, of Old Forge; and Natalie Scavo and husband, Marc Perrone, of Harrisburg; a beloved grandson, Joel Cali; sisters, Jean Drozginski, of Taylor; and Delores Fairchok, of Baldwinsville, N.Y.; a son-in-law, Eric Powell; and nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Elaine’s name to Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, c/o 967 Griffin Pond Road, South Abington Twp., PA 18411.
Private arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge.
