Sandra “Sandy” (Scheatzle) Sochovka, age 81, a resident at Allied Terrace and formerly of Old Forge, passed away Monday at Allied Skilled Nursing Center in Scranton, following an illness. On June 28, 2019, she was preceded in death by her husband, John A. Sochovka. 
Born in Duryea on June 25, 1942, and daughter of the late John and Beatrice (Simmons) Scheatzle, Sandy was a graduate of the former Duryea High School, Class of 1960, before raising her adored family of four children. Over the years, she worked in the deli department of her brother Alyn’s business, Schiff’s Market; served as a caregiver for her mother; and worked as a home health care aid for many years, most recently for Americare, prior to her recent retirement.
Wherever she could, Sandy loved planting flowers, and a lifelong animal lover, she was preceded by her three beloved pups. Leaving behind a legacy of three generations, she will forever be missed.
She is survived by her loving family including her four children, Kelly Thornton of Old Forge, Tracy Alexander and husband Mark of Old Forge, Jody Verdetto and husband David of Thompson and William Thornton, IV and wife Christina “Chrissy” of Old Forge; seven grandchildren who loved their “grammie”, Chelsea, Mark, Olivia, Natalie, Emily, Patrick and Aubrey; three great grandchildren, Tessa, Noah and Nicholas; her brother, Jack Scheatzle of Duryea; and many nieces and nephews.
Brothers, Alyn, Glenn, Dennis and Kenneth Scheatzle, also preceded Sandy in death.
A celebration of Sandy’s Life is scheduled for Sunday between 2 – 5:00 PM where family and friends are welcome to pay their respects at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge.
