June 2, 1925 - October 11, 2019
Hilda M. (Fritzen) Kingsley, age 94, of Old Forge, passed away Friday afternoon at home. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 61 years, Robert Kingsley, Sr., on October 5, 2008.
Born in Scranton on June 2, 1925, and daughter of the late Joseph T. and Clara Kloss, Hilda was a graduate of the former Scranton Technical High School, Class of 1943. Upon raising her family, she worked as an administrative assistant in the office of personnel for the Scranton School District for 25 years prior to her retirement.
She enjoyed sewing and completing her daily crossword puzzles, but loved nothing more than her time spent with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Passing away peacefully, she will certainly be missed.
Of Roman Catholic faith, she was a longtime member of St. Patrick’s Church Parish.
She is also survived by her loving children, Robert Kingsley, Jr., and wife Frances of Lake Ariel, Marge Orr of Taylor and Susan Christiansen and husband David of Nicholson; seven grandchildren, Megan McCabe and husband Brian, Joseph Orr, Kelly Wyatt and husband Tom, Maureen and Robert Kingsley, III, Caitlyn Wilkerson and husband Kyle and Cody Christensen and wife Alishia; 13 great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
Her adored son, Thomas Joseph Kingsley; and siblings, Carl and Gerard Fritzen, Dorothy McClain and Rita Ryan, also preceded her in death.
Funeral services are scheduled to begin on Wednesday at 9:15AM from the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton, with a 10:00AM Mass of Christian Burial at Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel, 1608 Oram Street in Scranton, to be celebrated by Rev. Richard Fox, Pastor. Entombment will follow at the Cathedral Cemetery Mausoleum.
Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Tuesday between 4-7:00PM at the funeral home.
