Lois (Rodney) Williams, age 91, a longtime resident of Taylor, passed away peacefully Saturday morning at home. On November 15, 2017, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 66 years, Roy Williams.
Born in Scranton on February 1, 1931, and daughter of the late Abram C. and Bertha (Rozelle) Rodney, Lois was a graduate of West Scranton High School. She briefly worked at the Woolworth’s Five & Ten Cent Store in Scranton’s Downtown before beginning to raise her family while her husband served as owner and operator of the Taylor Auto Exchange Texaco Station, a pillar in the Taylor community for decades.
Lois absolutely loved her game shows. Although she would never miss a Judge Judy and Maury Povich, none compared to The Price is Right. Above all else, she will never be forgotten as the kindest person in the world. She’ll forever be missed.
She is survived by her loving family including two daughters, Patricia Alumni of Eynon and Wendy Salerno and husband Daniel of Taylor; three grandchildren, Angelica Salerno, Ryan Alunni and Justin Alunni; six great grandchildren, Kyrian, Dahlia, Paul, Ryan, Elena and Aria; two sisters-in-law, Mary Lou Rodney of Asheville, N.C. and Loretta Burti of Taylor; and many nieces and nephews.
The last of five Rodney siblings, she was also preceded in death by her brother, Ernest Rodney, and sisters, Bertha Judge, Dorothy Stritzinger and Ruth Nicholas; and a son in law, Gerald Alunni.
Her family would like to acknowledge and thank longtime physician Michael Jalowiec for going above the call of duty in caring for Lois throughout the years.
Funeral services by Rev. Dr. Michael Shambora, Pastor of the Stewart Memorial United Methodist Church in Old Forge, are scheduled for Tuesday at 11:30 AM at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge. Burial will follow at the Marcy Cemetery in Duryea. Family and friends may pay their respects on Tuesday from 10:00 AM until services at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers and with profound gratefulness for their extraordinary care in a time of need, memorial contributions may be made in Lois’ name to Hospice of the Sacred Heart c/o 600 Baltimore Dr # 7, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702.
