Loretta Marie Culkin, 94, a lifelong resident of Scranton died Saturday evening in the Moses Taylor Hospital.
She was born and raised in the Nativity Section of Scranton, the daughter of the late William and Bridget O’Hora Hines. She was a member of Saint John Neumann Parish. Loretta was most recognizable by her flaming red hair and her friendly “Irish Eyes” smile. She worked hard all her life as a Nurse’s Aide taking care of numerous patients. She was a selfless person, never tiring in her giving to others, she would give anyone the shirt off her back. She believed in the luck of the Irish, despite having experienced little of it herself. She was an avid and expert Bingo player and loved to take her chances with the lottery.
The family would like to extend the deepest and most heartfelt thanks to all of the staff, nurses and Sisters at Holy Family Residence. Words cannot fully express our gratitude for the overwhelming love, compassion and care provided by the Holy Family Staff over the last 12 years of her life, she loved them as much as they loved her. The family would also like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Frank Milani and Dr. James Sheerer for all their kindness and care they gave to Loretta.
Surviving are two sons, Thomas Culkin and his wife Marilyn, Patrick Culkin; a sister, Theresa Wolfe, all of Scranton;
5 granddaughters, Amy Ostrowski and her husband Jeffrey, Erin Tansley, Bridget Judge and her husband Shawn, Meghan Gable and her husband Jonathan, Jennifer Heffron and her husband Mike; Great grandchildren, Jacob and Nicholas Ostrowski, Emily Tansley, Lily Judge, Lucy and Charley Gable, Alyssa and Henry Heffron; several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by 3 brothers, John, William and Joseph Hines, 2 sister, Ann McDonough and Mary Ganz.
The funeral will be on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. from the Miller Bean Funeral Home, Inc. 436 Cedar Ave, Scranton with Mass of Christian Burial at 9:30 a.m. in St. John Neumann Parish, Nativity of Our Lord Church, 633 Orchard Street, Scranton. Interment will follow in the Cathedral Cemetery, Scranton.
