Mary Lou Golecki, 84, of Simpson, quietly and peacefully departed this life on Tuesday, June 11th, at the Carbondale Nursing Center. She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Thomas.

Born November 2, 1934 in Simpson, daughter of the late Joseph and Mary Cherinchak Petak. She was a graduate of Fell High School. She worked and raised her children, then retired to care for her aging mother. Mary Lou was a woman who gave from her heart, even if you didn’t need anything. You would always leave her home with something, even if it was just a little piece of her heart. Her pleasant personality was infectious.

She will be missed by everyone who knew her, especially by “Mamie’s Angels,” nieces: Janet, Joann, and Maria, who provided countless hours of care and love. She will join her husband, brother John, and niece Bernadette in heaven.

Mary Lou is survived by two sons, Joseph and wife Lori, Greenfield Twp. and Gary, Scranton; four grandchildren, Christopher, Alexa, Michael, and Thomas; three great grandsons, Jack, Charlie, and August Golecki; a sister, Ann Rusnak and husband Bernard, Simpson; a brother Joseph Petak and wife Sonja, Simpson.

The Funeral will be Friday from the Joseph W. Scotchlas Funeral Home, 621 Main Street, Simpson, with Mass of Christian Burial at 10am in St. Joseph’s Church, Forest City. Entombment to follow in Our Mother of Sorrows Cemetery, Finch Hill.
