Frances Gavern of South Scranton passed away at the age of 95 surrounded by her true loving family on Saturday January 12, 2019. She and her husband, Louis Gavern, who died in 2013 would have celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on October 1, 2018.
Gram, as she was most affectionately called by her family, was born on September 24, 1923 in Casandrino, Naples, Italy, the daughter of the late Luigi and Anna Caiazzo. Frances and Louis met in Italy in 1953 and came to America. In her younger years, she was a dress maker at Family Garment. She was a devoted member of St. Paul of the Cross Parish and shared a special relationship with Father Scott for whom she loved to cook. Frances loved volunteering at the annual spaghetti dinner at St. Francis of Assis Parish making sauce, as well as at La Festa Italiana making cappuccino, and attending St. Ann’s Novena. She was also a member of the church Altar & Rosary Society and the Young at Heart Club.
Gram, the family’s true matriarch, loved nothing more than cooking and spending time with her family. Protecting, caring, compassionate, her enduring legacy will live on. In her elder years, she lived with and was cared for exclusively by her daughter Ann Marie and son-in-law Paul Jr. The bond with her daughter was unique and unbreakable.
Frances’ family would like to extend a special thank you to Father Scott Sterowski for all of his love and compassion he had for Frances.
She is survived by her daughter Ann Marie Batyko and her husband Paul Jr., Scranton; son Louis Gavern and wife Donna, Daleville; grandchildren Attorney Paul Batyko III, Christopher Batyko and wife Lauren, Matthew, Phillip, and Maria Batyko, Jason and Amy Gavern; brother Paul and sister Dolorade, both of Italy; several great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by 3 sisters.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Wednesday at 11 a.m. in Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary Church, St. Paul of the Cross Parish, 1217 Prospect Ave., Scranton. Interment Cathedral Cemetery. Friends and family may pay their respects Wednesday morning in the church from 9 a.m. until Mass time. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to St. Paul of the Cross Parish, 1217 Prospect Ave., Scranton, PA 18505.
Funeral Arrangements are under the care and the direction of the Miller Bean Funeral Home 436 Cedar Ave. Scranton.
