               It is with great sadness that the family of Bernice Yarosh announces her passing on December 29th, 2019 at Geisinger CMC, surrounded by her loving family.

                Bernice was the last surviving member of the Bernosky clan of Eynon.  Born on February 5th, 1924, daughter of the late Edward and Stella Schrader Bernosky.

                Her early elementary education was in Eynon schools  and she graduated from Archbald High School class of 1942.

                After the war, she met and married Edward Yarosh of Dickson City.  She chose to be a stay-at-home-mom to her three children, Barbara, Judith, and David, and devoted her life to raising her family.

                Bernice was a gentle and unassuming woman who touched the lives of many without any fanfare.  She was a devoutly religious person who professed her faith everyday through her actions, not merely words.  But most importantly she was the most unselfish and forgiving mother in the world.

                She is survived by her husband of 73 years, Edward “Pidgy”, a resident of the Gino Merli Veterans Center, daughter Judy Hooper and husband Bob of Olyphant, son David Yarosh and wife Janet of Jessup, son-in-law Philip Bishop of Lebanon, PA; grandchildren John Uhl and wife Sharon, Hughestown, Jennifer Gorski and husband Mark of Clark Summit, and Stacy Stark and husband Chris of Lebanon, PA; great-grandchildren Mary and Samantha Stark and Anna and Evan Gorski and numerous nieces and nephews.

                Preceding her in death was her beloved daughter Barbara Bishop; siblings Helen Cherveniak, Gertrude Dodzian, Florence Petcavage, Edward Bernosky, Marian Negvesky, her twin brother Bernard Bernosky, and Elizabeth Gronsky.

                The funeral will be Saturday from the Frank T Mazur funeral home, 601 Dundaff St., Dickson City with a mass of Christian Burial at 10am in St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City.  Friends may call Saturday at the funeral home, 8:30-9:30am.  For directions or to leave an online condolence please visit the funeral home website.
