August 22, 1937 - October 16, 2019
Johanna (Fereck) McCawley, age 82, of Wyoming, passed away Wednesday at Lackawanna County Health Care Center in Peckville. She is survived by her best friend and loving husband of 61 years, Thomas McCawley, Sr. The couple were married on April 26, 1958.
Born on August 22, 1937, and raised in Port Griffith, Johanna was the daughter of the late John and Anna (Stachokus) Fereck. She went to St. John the Baptist School before graduating high school from the former Jenkins Twp. High School.
For over two decades she worked for Continental Cigars of West Pittston. She returned to St. John’s School as a cafeteria cook before last working as a personal care aide at Wesley Village, prior to her retirement.
Johanna was an amazing cook and baker who loved to crochete. Once retired she enjoyed playing video games and was always up for watching a good horror flick. Possessing an admirable work ethic and a heart of gold, she’s best described as a genuinely good woman who will be forever missed.
Her family would like to thank the entire Lackawanna Health Care Center’s staff, especially those in wing B2, for the months of tremendous care given to both Johanna and her husband.
She is also survived by her sons, Ken McCawley and wife Tracy of Scranton and Tom McCawley and wife Donna of San Francisco, California; four grandchildren, Jesse, Ella, Amelia and Tristan McCawley; her dear cousin who she considered a sister, Patricia (Patty) Falvo of Pittston; and her beloved pups, Molly and Peanut.
A blessing service with burial at St. John the Baptist Cemetery in Exeter will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Johanna’s name to the Lackawanna Health and Rehabilitation Center’s Resident Fund c/o 260 Terrace Drive, Peckville, PA 18452.
Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
