Elaine C. Ungvarsky, RN, of Scranton passed away peacefully at home on Thursday morning after an illness.
Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Leon and Caroline Hahn Schimes. Before her retirement, she was a proud registered nurse working at Mercy Hospital.
Elaine loved to attend the Red Baron games, especially liking the Clydesdale horses when they were in town. She enjoyed watching tennis and ice skating, vacationing at the lake with family and endless hours playing board games. Her greatest joy was her visits from her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Surviving are her children, Sandy Gordon and husband, Howard; Carol Meshko and husband, George; and Paulette Bobersky, all of Scranton; her grandchildren, David Rempe; Danielle Rempe Brazill and husband, Rich; George Meshko, Nicole Meshko and Desiree Giblin. Also surviving are her great-grandchildren, Griffin and Owen Brazill, Shea Tompkins and Autumn Martino; her sister, Lois Williams; and multiple nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her daughters, Judith Ungvarsky; and Donna Giblin and husband, Jack; her beloved sister, Joan Urbanowicz and husband, Michael; her brother, Robert Schimes; and her brother-in-law, Richard Williams.
Elaine’s daughters would like to thank Hospice of the Sacred Heart for their remarkable care and compassion.
