January 8, 1932 - April 25, 2020
Arlene (Larson) Walsh, age 88, a lifelong resident of Scranton, passed away Saturday at Allied Skilled Nursing Center in Scranton, after an illness. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 54 years, John (Jack) R. Walsh, on December 17, 2011.
Born on January 8, 1932, and daughter of the late Oscar and Mary (Knight) Larson, Arlene was a 1949 graduate of West Scranton High School. From working the proof department to investments to the military department, she spent her entire career as a well-respected banker with PNC Bank in Scranton until her retirement. While she took great pride in her work, her work ethic was always admirable.
Of Roman Catholic faith, she was a longtime member of St. Patrick’s Parish in West Scranton before moving to South Scranton. After the closure of the former St. John’s Church, she began attending St. Peter’s Cathedral.
She loved her family, especially her grandchildren who she truly lived for. She’ll be forever missed by family and friends.
She is survived by his three daughters, Pamela Ann Lewis and husband James of Lutz, Florida, Mary Beth Walsh of Jessup, and Erin Marie Kulesa of Scranton; her grandchildren, Drew and Garren Lewis and Sean Kulesa; her sisters, Audrey Gallagher and Mildred Larson, both of Scranton; and nieces and nephews.
A son, Sean Patrick Walsh; and brothers, Paul Larson, Peter Farrell and infant Cyril Larson, also preceded her in death.
Details for a funeral Mass with burial to follow at Cathedral Cemetery will be announced. Arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Arlene’s name to St. Jude Children’s Hospital c/o 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN, 38105.
