Anne (Antoloci) Kearney, 85, a longtime resident of Clarks Summit, died on Friday, at the Timber Ridge Health Care Center in Wilkes Barre. She was the wife of the late John Francis Kearney. The couple was married in January 1958.
Born June 17, 1934 in Wilkes Barre, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Elizabeth (Senchak) Antoloci. She graduated from Wilkes-Barre Twp. High School and worked for the State of Pennsylvania as a purchasing agent with the State Workers Insurance Fund. Anne also worked as a realtor in the greater Clarks Summit area.
Anne enjoyed listening to live polka bands, arts & crafts, and travel (especially to California). Above all, Anne truly cherished raising her four children, and her greatest enjoyments came from spending time with her family—her annual Christmas Eve buffets were legendary, and she kept the door open and a pot of soup on the stove year-round for anyone who would drop by to talk for an hour or two.
Surviving are one daughter: Kathleen DeCarlo (Michael) of Taylor; three sons: John (Nancy) of Scranton, Patrick (Duane Reel) of Kansas City, MO and Michael Kearney (Angela) of Cape May, NJ; 5 grandchildren, 1 great-grandchild, nieces and a nephew.
She was preceded in death by a brother, Charles Antoloci.
