Edith Mae (Neary) Lomeo of South Abington Twp. died Wednesday, surrounded by her loving children and grandchildren, in Hospice of the Sacred Heart Inpatient Facility, Dunmore. She was the wife of 50 years to the late John Lomeo.
Born in Carbondale, she was a daughter of the late Thomas and Helen (Carden) Neary. She was a graduate of Ben Franklin High School, Carbondale. She was a member of Our Lady of the Snows Parish, Clarks Summit, and a former member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Chinchilla Hose Company.
Edith, whose children and grandchildren affectionately called her "Nanny," was the heart of the family. She devoted her life to her husband, children and grandchildren, and cherished family gatherings. Her passing is only consoled by the fact she is with her "Johny Dough Boy." Her gentleness will be sadly missed.
