Clare Sibio

Clare Sibio, 85, of Newton Twp., died Sunday, January 20, 2013 at home. She was the wife of the late Joseph B. Sibio Sr., who died July 27, 1988. The couple was married more than 40 years.

Born July 15, 1927, in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Marie Bartels Foy. Before moving to Newton Twp. in 1985, she lived in West Scranton. She was a 1943 graduate of Scranton Central High School. She owned and operated Sibio's Bar and Grill, West Scranton, for more than 46 years. She was a faithful and active member of Our Lady of the Snows Parish, Clarks Summit. She volunteered in the parish office and was a member of Our Lady of the Snows Women's Guild, a volunteer with the parish Lazarus and was an annual volunteer at the parish bazaar.

She was devoted to her family and a faithful volunteer to her church. Clare entered eternal rest surrounded by her loving family and during prayers by her parish priests. Clare was an avid reader and enjoyed crossword puzzles. She liked to travel and the happy times she enjoyed at casinos. A regal and proud woman, she was meticulous about her appearance and her beautiful hair. Her genuine, gentle smile will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Sibio Jr., her caregiver, Newton Twp.; Michael and wife, Christine, Sterling; John and companion, Jacqueline Yeager, Scranton; and James and wife, Rebecca, Newton Twp.; a daughter, Cheryl Angeli and husband, Anthony, Old Forge; a sister, Shirley Roche and husband, Edward, Dunmore; her lifelong friend and traveling companion, Dee Graham; 11 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews.
