Catherine J. Gavern, 78, of Dunmore died peacefully surrounded by family on February 27, 2020 at the Hospice of the Sacred Heart Inpatient Unit.
She is survived by her husband, Frank G. Gavern, also of Dunmore. They recently celebrated 58 years of marriage in February 2020.
Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Delores and Harold Lee. She was a graduate of the former South Catholic High School.
Catherine was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Her family was the most important thing in her life. She enjoyed spending her summers at Page Lake with her husband, children, and grandchildren. Catherine loved to cook and found a love in baking cookies with her grandchildren or making pizza with her husband. She also enjoyed Broadway plays and shared this love of theater with her family. Her bright and joyful spirit will be deeply missed by all who loved and knew her.
The family would like to extend their deepest and sincerest gratitude to all of the nurses and staff at Hospice of the Sacred Heart.
Also surviving is a daughter Kelly and husband Joseph McCool, Dunmore, daughter Kathleen and husband Attorney Joseph Caputo, Convington Twp., son Frank A. Gavern and wife Valarie, Springbrook Twp., son Dean Gavern, Madison Twp., and daughter Nicole Gavern, Dunmore; grandchildren Jordan McCool, Morgan McCool, Gianna Caputo, Donato Caputo, Francesco Gavern, Matthew Gavern, and Grace Gavern; brother John Lee and wife Virginia; brother Robert Lee and wife Bonnie; several nieces and nephews.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday at 10 am in SS. Anthony and Rocco Parish, at St. Anthony’s Church, 303 Smith St., Dunmore. Per Catherine’s wishes, she was cremated and interment will follow in Cathedral Cemetery. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 600 Baltimore Dr. Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702.
