Sheila E. Czarkowski, of Clarks Summit, formerly of Dickson City, died unexpectedly in Bradenton, Florida on Thursday, February 25, 2016.  Sheila Kelly, of Falls, was born on February 2, 1950 in Pittston.  She was married to Thomas Sr., her husband of 43 years and recently celebrated her 66th birthday.
Sheila graduated from Wyoming Area High School and received her Master of Arts in Education from East Stroudsburg University.  She taught in the Abington Heights School District, at Grove Street Elementary and Abington Middle School for 35 years, prior to her retirement in 2006.  Sheila was devoted to prayer and the Catholic Church and served as a lector and member of Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, Dickson City.
Sheila had an unconditional and unending love for her husband, children and her cherished grandchildren.  She was an avid reader and a lover of life who spent endless hours with her grandchildren sharing her love of reading with them and teaching them the beautiful lessons of life.  She worked tirelessly to instill upon her family and grandchildren the importance of being loving and caring people.
In 2004, Sheila and Tom purchased their dream “doll house” home in Clermont, Florida as their winter retreat.  Sheila had a special gift for being able to see the positive in everyone’s life she touched – and there were many!  Sheila’s smile, her positive demeanor, and outgoing personality were contagious which allowed her to form many friendships, which made her that special person. She was selfless, honest, and compassionate and always offered a friendly and warm shoulder to lean on. This warmth carried over for her love and loyalty to her dog, Gizmo.
Sheila served as the matriarch of her family.  She had a love of cooking for her family and dedicated herself to maintaining and instilling the importance of cherishing and honoring family traditions.
Sheila is survived by the love of her life, Tom and children:  Thomas Jr. and spouse Michelle, Clarks Summit, PA; Kevin and spouse Denise of Vicenza, Italy; and Sheila Ann Zezza and spouse David of Downingtown, PA.  She is also survived by nine grandchildren:  Peter Gentile, Ava and Kate Czarkowski; Nicholas, Sofia and Noah Czarkowski, and David, Ryan and Michael Zezza.  She is also survived by several nieces and nephews.
In addition, Sheila is survived by her mother, Rose Emma Kelly of Pittston, PA and eight brothers and sisters:  Joseph Kelly and spouse Anne of Jupiter, FL; Michael Kelly and spouse LeDonne, Wyoming, PA; Rosemary Soricelli and spouse Duane, Lafayette Hill, PA; Patricia Xenakis and spouse Randall, Dallas, PA; Rev. Brian F. Kelly, Carlsbad, CA; Celestine Calpin and spouse Robert, West Pittston, PA; Maureen Chiavacci, Clarks Summit, PA; Mark Kelly and spouse Michelle, Beachwood, OH.
She was preceded in death by her father Joseph P. Kelly, Jr. and father and mother in law Stanley and Margaret Czarkowski.
The funeral will be Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. from the Frank T. Mazur Funeral Home, Inc. 601 Dundaff St. Dickson City with mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. In St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City.
