Obituary for Nancy Walsh, RN

Nancy Walsh, RN, 74, a resident of Roaring Brook Twp died on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton. She was the widow of James J. Walsh, Sr. who passed away on March 23, 2004.

Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Francis T and Ann (Hunt) Battle. Nancy graduated from South Catholic High School and earned her RN from the Scranton State Hospital School of Nursing. Nancy spent her career caring for patients in local hospitals and in their homes. She was an active member of The Church of Saint Eulalia in Roaring Brook Twp.

“Fancy Nancy”, as she was affectionately known, will be remembered for her devotion to her faith and family. Nancy's children and grandchildren were her pride and joy and were the fortunate recipients of her love and attention. For her, nursing was more vocation than career and she was defined by the caring and compassionate nature that made her a beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister and nurse. She lived life on purely her own terms. With a quick wit and sassy demeanor, she kept those around her on their toes. Always looking for a good bargain, she never met a coupon that she didn’t like. She was well known for her green thumb and counted the days until she was able to dig in the dirt each spring. Despite her small stature, Nancy fought with every ounce of her Irish pride and the spirit of a giant. She will be sorely missed and will live large in the memories of those fortunate enough to love her.

Nancy is survived by her children: James J. Walsh, Jr. and his wife Elizabeth of Roaring Brook Twp., Michael J. Walsh and his wife Cathy of Dunmore, Terriann McAllister and her husband Scott of Jefferson Twp., Erin Pencek and her husband Jason of Roaring Brook Twp.; her grandchildren: Jason and James Walsh of Roaring Brook Twp, Bridget, Kaitlin and Matthew Walsh of Dunmore, Kyler, Brayden and Ryliann McAllister of Jefferson Twp., Anna, Nora and Lila Pencek of Roaring Brook Twp.; her siblings: John Battle and his wife Gail of Troup, TX, Joseph Battle and his wife Dorothy of Scranton, Maureen Sodano and her husband Michael of New Port Richey, FL, James Battle and his wife Denise of Dalton; her sisters in law: Marie Battle, Gail Battle, Joan Rowland and Joyce Rinaldi and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her brothers Thomas Battle, Francis Battle and her brother in law: Thomas Walsh.

The family is beyond grateful for the care that Nancy received at Geisinger CMC. The team of Trauma surgeons worked exhaustively to give her every chance of recovery. The nursing care that she received in ICU and PCU was beyond compare. Each of these compassionate individuals was what she referred to as a “nurse’s nurse”. This is the highest compliment that she could bestow.

The Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, March 10 at 10:00 am in The Church of Saint Eulalia, 214 Blue Shutters Road in Roaring Brook Twp to be celebrated by Monsignor John W. Jordan. Interment with Rite of Committal will follow in Saint Catherine's Cemetery in Covington Twp.

Viewing will be on Saturday from 8:00 am until the time of the Mass at the church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to St. Eulalia Parish, (Memo: 3rd Cornerstone Campaign), 214 Blue Shutters Road, Roaring Brook Twp Pa 18444. Arrangements are entrusted to Brian Arthur Strauch Funeral Homes and Cremation Services, LLC in Spring Brook Twp.
