Laurie Ann Neishell Hughes, 56, of Clarks Summit, passed away Wednesday at Mountain View Care Center in Scranton surrounded by her loving family.
Born May 29, 1967, in Scranton, Laurie was the daughter of the late Tony and Shirley Pilchesky Neishell. A 1985 graduate of Abington Heights High School, Laurie lettered in softball three years in a row and was co-captain in her senior year. In one game, she belted seven hits and two home runs. Laurie also attended Penn State Worthington Campus and was employed by Panel Prints for a few years, and then Northeast Tag and Title where she worked for over 20 years.
