May 13, 1938 - July 13, 2019
Natalie M. (Billus) Kizer, R.N., age 81, a lifelong resident of Scranton, passed away Saturday evening at Riverside Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in Taylor, after an illness. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Donald Kizer, in 2006.
Born on May 13, 1938 and raised in North Scranton, Natalie was the daughter of the late Alice and Zigmont Billus, Sr. A graduate of the former Scranton Technical High School she then earned her Associates Degree from Penn State University.
For many years, she cared for the patients of Community Medical Center as a registered nurse and prior to her retirement she was a direct support professional for St. Joseph’s Center. She was also a member of the Taurus Club, North Scranton.
Natalie had an amazing work ethic, raising her children while selflessly caring for her family before herself. Now at peace, she was a loving mother, grandmother and sister who will be missed forever.
She is survived by her three children, Robert Kerecman and wife Linda of Scranton, Joseph Kerecman and wife Anne of Newtown Square and Sharon Marranca and husband Carmen of Exeter; her brothers, Zigmont Billus, Jr. and wife Joan of New York and Joseph Billus of Kansas; grandchildren, Tessa, Evan, Ben, Victor, Justin, Alexandra, Aubriana and Joseph; great grandchildren, Olivia, Jake and Taylor; and nieces and nephews.
Her family wishes to extend its gratitude to the entire staff of Riverside Center for their collective care throughout her stay.
