Marie Wilson Yamrus

Monday, July 25, 1927Monday, August 19, 2019

Marie Wilson Yamrus, 92, formerly of Arlington Road, Forty Fort, passed peacefully into eternal life on Monday, August 19, 2019, at Tiffany Court Assisted Living, Kingston, where she recently resided.

Her beloved husband was the late Fred M. Yamrus Sr., who passed away on March 04, 2017. Fred and Marie were blessed to have shared 70 beautiful years of marriage.

Born on July 25, 1927, at her family homestead in Swoyersville, Marie was the daughter of the late Walter and Victoria (Yablonicky) Wilson.

Marie was raised in Swoyersville, and went on to graduate from Saint Cyril Academy, Danville.

A homemaker most of her life, Marie devoted herself to tending to the daily needs of her loving family.

Marie was a lifelong member of the former Holy Trinity Church, Swoyersville, holding membership with the church’s Confraternity of Christian Mothers. Active within her church, Marie volunteered at its annual bazaar, helping with making pirohy and baking cakes. Following the consolidation of her church, she became a member of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, Swoyersville.

Active within her community, Marie volunteered for many years as a “pink lady” at the former Nesbitt Memorial Hospital, Kingston; served for many years on the Board of The Arc of Luzerne County; served on the Board of the former United Rehabilitation Services, Wilkes-Barre, serving as president of its auxiliary for five years; and was a member of the “Young at Heart Card Club” with her girlfriends from Swoyersville.

Marie enjoyed going out to dinner with her family and visiting the casinos both here at home and in Atlantic City. One of her fondest memories was the 80th birthday trip she took with her husband and children to the Sands Casino in Atlantic City.

Family was truly the center of Marie’s life, and her love and devotion for her loved ones was evident by her well-known phrase, “my children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren are my jewels.”

In addition to her parents, Walter and Victoria Wilson, and her husband, Fred Sr., Marie was preceded in death by her son-in-law, George Sobeck.

Marie is survived by her six children, Geri Sobeck, Tunkhannock; Mary Ellen “Mimi” (Mark) Domenick, Martinsville, New Jersey; Fred (Patti) Yamrus Jr., Kingston; Michael (Lori) Yamrus, Hilton Head, South Carolina; David (Janet) Yamrus, Kingston; and Mark Yamrus, Tunkhannock; her thirteen grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren; her brother, Walter “Buddy” Wilson, Kingston; as well as her many nieces and nephews.

Relatives and Friends are respectfully invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial which will be celebrated on Friday, August 23, 2019, at 10:00 AM in Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, 116 Hughes Street, Swoyersville, with the Reverend Joseph J. Pisaneschi, her Pastor, officiating.

The Confraternity of Christian Mothers of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish will recite the Rosary on Friday morning at 9:15 AM in the church.

Interment with the Rite of Committal will follow in Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Cemetery, Swoyersville.

Condolences

Mimi, so sorry to read of your mom's passing. You were so fortunate to have her for so many wonderful years. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Pat Sonday Giordano
I would like to extend my condolences to my son in law David, his siblings and the entire family on the loss of Marie Yamrus. David you were a very loving son and along with your family treated your mother with respect and caring. I know she must have been proud of all of you. Peace be with you. June Wilcox
With sadness I send our deepest sympathy for Marie. Fred and Marie were wonderful neighbors and we have fond memories of all the years living next door to them. All the jokes Bob would make to Marie about cheating at cards and she would laugh right along with him. She always had smiles and would ask how we were. We will all miss Marie dearly! Charlotte and Bob Thomas and sons
My sincere condolences to the entire Yamrus family on the passing of your mother. Robert Sabatini
Marie was such a good friend to my parents, Rita and John Sabadish. I will always remember her with a smile. Gloria Phillips With a smile
