Bernadette (Davies) Hurlburt

June 25, 1970 - November 21, 2019

Bernadette “Bonnie” (Davies) Hurlburt, age 49, a West Scranton native and most recently of The Thousand Island region of New York, passed away Thursday evening at Geisinger Community Medical Center after a courageous fight and brave battle against Cancer. Her husband, Jeffrey J. Gushlaw, preceded her in death on November 28, 2018.
Born in West Scranton on June 25, 1970, and the beloved daughter of Bernadette “Bonnie” (Rakauskas) Davies and the late Gerald “Jerry” Davies, Bonnie was educated at West Scranton High School and spent her adult life caring for others until her untimely diagnosis.
Bonnie loved reading, listening to music and watching movies – all movies – especially those regarding the paranormal. She also served as her husband’s caregiver until his death last year before she began her own fight. She adored her children, her mother and her siblings, and although she may be gone, she’ll never be forgotten.
She is also survived by her son, Ian Smith of Nanticoke; her daughter, Gerilynn Smith of Seoul, South Korea; her sister, Carolyn Quinn and husband Patrick of Scranton; her brother, Joseph Davies and wife Lee Ann of Spring Brook Twp.; and nieces and nephews.
Her family would like to sincerely thank the entire E.R. staff at Geisinger C.M.C., especially to Dr. Richard White, for going above and beyond to provide Bonnie with the best care, and her family with the best comfort.
Private arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton.
Memorial contributions may be made in Bonnie’s name to the Child’s Play Charity c/o 9660 153rd Ave NE, Redmond, WA 98052.
