Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Nancy (Waltz) Barbini, a longtime resident of Moosic’s Greenwood section, passed away peacefully Tuesday morning at home. She was 79 years old.
On October 9, 1965, she married her beloved husband of 57 years and best friend, Carl Barbini, Sr., who survives.
Born in Scranton on January 7, 1944, and daughter of the late Albert, Sr. and Eleanor (Hill) Waltz, Nancy was a graduate of the former Scranton Technical High School, Class of 1961. Upon raising her children, she and her husband would go on to purchase Mace Coin & Card Mart, an iconic West Scranton business, that they’ve owned and operated for over 40 years. Nancy became a familiar face to thousands of customers throughout decades of business. Prior to her retirement, she also worked for the Scranton School District for over ten years.
Nancy was always active and perpetually involved in the community. She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of UNICO’s Scranton Chapter, she was the former president of the Scranton Coin Club and she served as Moosic Elementary School’s PTA president, just to name a few of the organizations she was involved with.
She was a die-hard fan of the New York Yankees, would never pass up a trip to the Mohegan Sun Casino and was an amazing baker, never allowing someone’s birthday to pass without baking him/her a cake.
Nancy was the keystone of her family. She was strong, independent and told it like it was. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother to her adored Colter and sister whose family meant more to her than anything. Saying that she will be missed is an understatement.
Along with her husband, she is survived by her two children, Carl Barbini, Jr. and wife Melissa (Missy) of Taylor and Jen Sienkiewicz and husband Ed of Avoca; a grandson, Colter Sienkiewicz of Avoca; her siblings, Albert Waltz, Jr. of Duryea and Virginia Hoar of Elmhurst Twp.; and nieces and nephews.
Her family would like to thank Dr. Christopher Metzger along with the entire staff of Lehigh Valley Hospital for the amazing care Nancy received throughout her illness.
Private blessing services by Rev. Francis Pauselli will be from the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Avenue, West Scranton, with entombment to follow at the Cathedral Cemetery Mausoleum.
Memorial contributions may be made in Nancy’s name to the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter c/o 967 Griffin Pond Rd, South Abington Township, PA 18411. An animal lover, Nancy had a loving cat, “Maria”, who she had adopted from the shelter.
