Scranton, PA July 29, 1961 ~ September 18, 2016 Date of Service: September 22, 2016

Helen Elizabeth Hilson Mercincavage, 55, of Scranton, died Sunday morning at home.


She was born in Taylor on July 29, 1961 to the late Joseph Sr. and Lucy Ruth Aston Hilson. She attended school in the Riverside School District and went on to become a certified nurse’s aide, most recently working as a private duty nurse. She was a member of the Divine Parish at St. Joseph’s Church in Scranton.


On August 31, 1985, she married Robert A. Mercincavage, and that blessed union produced three beautiful, wonderful children—daughter, Cassandra Irene Mercincavage, and sons Tyler Joseph and Christian James Mercincavage. She also has two grandchildren, Marianna and Trent Lipisko, both of California, as well as her siblings and nieces and nephews. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.


A graveside funeral service will be held Thursday at 1 p.m. in the Dunmore Cemetery, 400 Church St., Dunmore.   Family and friends attending are asked to please gather at the cemetery office at 12:45 p.m.


The family asks that in lieu of flowers, preferred memorial donations in Helen’s name can be made to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, 524 East Main St., Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702.
