February 23, 1959 - July 12, 2019
Mary Ellen (Loscombe) Flannery, age 60, a lifelong West Scranton resident, passed away Friday at Geisinger C.M.C., Scranton, after an illness. Her husband, Robert (Bob) Flannery, preceded her in death on June 1st. The inseparable couple were married for 38 years.
Born on February 23, 1959, to her mother and sidekick, Mary (Gerrity) Loscombe of West Scranton and the late John (Jack) Loscombe, Mary Ellen was a graduate of West Scranton High School, Class of 1977. After working as a secretary in the offices of the Jermyn Drug Store and then at Ferranti Brothers, she started, owned and operated Nu Products, a bottling distributor in Scranton, prior to becoming ill. A faithful Roman Catholic, she was a lifelong member of St. Patrick’s Parish, West Scranton.
A loving daughter, wife, sister and aunt to her nieces and nephews who affectionately referred to her as “mom”, Mary Ellen will forever be remembered for her kind and loving spirit. From trips to the Poconos with her husband to preparing her family’s taxes, being with her family made her happiest. No longer suffering, she’s now reunited with her love, Bob.
She is also survived by her loving brothers, John (Jack) Loscombe, Jr. and wife Susan, Richard Loscombe and wife Melissa and David Loscombe, all of Scranton; a sister-in-law, Ann Ozawa of Mass.; a brother-in-law, Ken Martin of Scranton; and her adoring nieces and nephews.
A sister, Kathy Martin; an infant brother, James Loscombe; and a sister-in-law, Christine Loscombe, also preceded her in death.
With a heartfelt thank you, her family would like to acknowledge all of the amazing friends, relatives and health care workers, including Dr. Michael Alocci, for the tremendous care given to Mary Ellen.
