Cynthia “Cindy” (Squirlock) Plisko, age 74, a nine-year resident of Hop Bottom and formerly of Dupont, passed away Wednesday evening at The Gardens of Tunkhannock, peacefully and on her own terms.
Born on December 12, 1949 and raised in the Greenwood section of Moosic, Cindy was the daughter of the late John and Mary (Vargo) Squirlock. A graduate of Old Forge High School’s Class of 1968, prior to her well-deserved 2010 retirement she worked for over 22 years at Preferred Meals in Moosic.
Despite any limitations Cindy may have faced throughout her life, she strove for the best in whatever she tried to do. An absolute warrior in her own right, she faced many hardships however she would finally find true happiness when she met her beloved companion, Jim. The couple enjoyed many amazing years together prior to his untimely death in 2010. She would long reminisce about the couple’s trips visiting casinos from Delaware to New York, and she long hoped and prayed to be reunited with him in the afterlife.
Cindy had a selfless nature and formerly volunteered for her church’s parish, from St. Nicholas of Myra Church in Old Forge to Grace Lutheran Church in Hop Bottom. She enjoyed playing cards, loved Bingo and would never pass up a trip to the casino. Although now reunited with those she loved, Cindy was truly one of a kind and will never be forgotten.
She is survived by her family, including daughter and caregiver, Joyce Harvey and husband Dave of Hop Bottom; son Jonathan Plisko of Mount Pocono; granddaughters, twins Ashlynd and Alycia and Vanessa Harvey; and sister, Beverly Pikulski and husband Robert of Old Forge.
She was also preceded in death by her companion and best friend of over twenty years, Jim Feeney.
Cindy’s family wishes to extend its sincere gratitude to the entire staff of The Gardens, her amazing neighbors (The Potter and Turner families) and to the Grace Lutheran Church congregation for both understanding her and also loving her when it may have not always been so easy to do so.
A private blessing service by Rev. Steven Geske, Pastor of the Grace Lutheran Church in Hop Bottom, will be from the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge, followed by burial alongside Jim at St. Joseph’s Parish Cemetery in Middletown, N.Y.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Cindy’s name to the activities department of The Gardens of Tunkhannock c/o 30 Virginia Dr, Tunkhannock, PA 18657.
If you say a prayer for Cindy, don’t dare call her “Cynthia” or she won’t answer you!
