July 11, 1946 - December 20, 2017
Margaret (Peggy) A. Davis, R.N., 71, of Old Forge, passed away Wednesday evening at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, after an illness. She is survived by her loving husband and best friend, James Davis. They celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary on September 12th.
Born on July 11, 1946, and raised in Old Forge, Peggy was the daughter of the late John and Mary Lefchak. A graduate of Old Forge High School, Class of 1964, she then became a Registered Nurse after graduating from the former Scranton State School of Nursing. She worked at the Scranton General State Hospital before retiring as the Head Nurse for Scranton’s Gino J. Merli Veterans Center.
Of Roman Catholic faith, Peggy was a longtime member of St. Patrick’s Church in West Scranton. She enjoyed her trips to the casino with her husband, especially when the two would go out to Las Vegas. She was an amazing wife, incredible mother and adoring grandmother who will be undoubtedly missed forever.
She is also survived by four children, J.J. Davis and wife Lori of Scranton, Kim Davis of Old Forge, Brian Davis and wife Sarah of Rochester, N.Y., and Amy Mills and husband Eric of Scranton; three grandchildren, Caiden and Addison Davis and Lucas Mills; her sister, Mary Ann Krolikowski and husband William of Cresco; and many nieces and nephews.
She was also preceded in death by her infant brother.
Peggy’s family would like to thank the entire staff of Geisinger C.M.C.’s Intensive Care Unit, especially Susan Patrick, R.N, who went above and beyond to provide an empathetic ear and a compassionate hand when such a life changing diagnosis was delivered to Peggy’s family.
Funeral services are scheduled to begin on Wednesday at 9:00AM from the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street in Old Forge with a 10:00AM Mass of Christian Burial at St. Patrick’s Church, 1403 Jackson Street in West Scranton, to be celebrated by Rev. Richard Fox, Pastor. Interment will follow at St. Nicholas of Myra Parish Cemetery in Old Forge.
