Lucille Marichak, 92, of Dunmore, died Monday afternoon at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore. Her husband, Charles Marichak, died Nov. 3, 1998. The couple had been married for 49 years.

Born in Scranton, daughter of the late Walter and Catherine Zywniecki Wasik, she worked for the former Penn Illuminating in Scranton before retirement.

She enjoyed gambling at the Mohegan Sun Casino but what she most enjoyed were her daily bus excursions on the COLTS buses throughout Scranton. She was well-known by many for "riding the bus." She was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who will be sadly missed by all who knew her. 

Surviving are a son, Charles and wife, Linda, Dickson City; a daughter, Carol Davis, North Carolina; grandchildren, Becky Canova and husband, Thom; Christine Ogozali and husband, Eric; and John Stanco and wife, Jeanette; 12 great-grandchildren; and seven great-great-grandchildren; a sister, Florence Ksiazek, Florida; brothers, Stanley Wasik, Connecticut; Matthew Wasik, Minooka; and Joseph Wasik, Florida; several nieces, nephews and cousins; and a very special nephew, Walter, who always took her shopping.

She was also preceded in death by sisters, Ceil Opello, Delores Paszkowski and Jean Yanowski; and brothers, Chester and Henry Wasik.

The funeral will be Saturday from the Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home Inc., 318 E. Drinker St., Dunmore, with Mass at 11 a.m. in St. Mary of Mount Carmel Church, Chestnut Street, Dunmore. Interment, Dunmore Cemetery.

Friends may call Saturday from 9 to 10:30 at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 100 William St., Dunmore, PA 18512.
