Marie was the daughter of the late Anthony and Julia Yonushka and was a graduate of Duryea High School. She was formerly employed at the Consolidated Cigar Co. of West Pittston.
Marie was an active member of Nativity of Our Lord Parish where she was a Eucharistic minister, a member of the choir, and participated in summer picnic preparation and fundraising for the parish.

Her presence will be missed at our family holiday dinners, where she would always say grace and was always thankful and prayed for our troops to be safe.
