Stasia Wzorek, 93, affectionately known as “Honey,” of the Greenwood section of Moosic, entered into eternal rest on Saturday evening surrounded by her loving family. Her husband, Matthew, died July 22, 1975.
Born in Moosic, she was the daughter of the late Vincent and Pauline Mosiejwski Polkosnik. Stasia was a parishioner of the former St. Mary’s of Czestochowa Church, Moosic. Throughout her life, she worked in the garment industry at Linden Industry, Schott Optical, Duryea, and as a teacher’s aide for the NEIU, where she would care for children. Her secret to a long and fulfilling life was her beautiful family. When her great-grandchildren would visit, her eyes would light up. Stasia spoke the Polish language fluently and was proud of her Polish heritage. She enjoyed working in her garden, cooking, baking and going to the casino with her daughter.
Surviving are a daughter, Cathy, Old Forge; a son, Matthew J. Jr. and his wife, Michelle, Moosic; five grandchildren, Kristen Petrucci and fiancé, Ron Masewitz; Bradley Kreidler and wife, Nicole; Ashley Trolio and husband, Nate; Matthew Wzorek and wife, Rachel; and Abbey Wzorek; four great-grandchildren, Joey and Nick Petrucci, and Ella and Nathan Trolio; two sisters, Jean Zyats and husband, Edward; and Dorothy Tippett; and sister-in-law, Leona Polkosnik; many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her daughter, Barbara A. Kreidler, three brothers, Walter Muroski, Edmund (Red) Polkosnik and Mark Zielenski; and two sisters, Mary Bogus and Florence Sucheski.
The Wzorek family would like to express their deepest gratitude to Dr. Armando Sallavanti, the staff of Traditional Hospice and Interim Healthcare Services.
