Anna Goncheroski

Anna Goncheroski, 87, of Laflin, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 17, 2018, while in the care of the Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, surrounded by her loving family.

 Born in Laflin on May 3, 1931, she was the daughter of the late Wassil and Anna Hutsko Kuncio. She grew up in the Laflin area and attended the local school. Anna worked in the local garment industry for several years. She married the late Joseph Goncheroski. Together they raised their four daughters.

Anna was a wife, mother, and grandmother who surrounded her family with love and care. She was an extremely talented cook, and everyone she met loved her for her kindness and generosity. She will be remembered for her sharp wit and clever jokes. But above all, her greatest joy came from spending time with her children and grandchildren.
