Theresa M. Nidoh, of Scranton, 94 years young, passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home, on April 28, 2021 after a long illness. She was preceded in death on June 29, 1999, by her beloved husband of almost 50 years, William Nidoh, who loved her dearly, and her son William Jr, who passed on October 23, 1978. She cared for both throughout their illnesses and loved them both dearly. She was a devoted wife and mother. Siblings, Peter Symuleski and Dorothy Maus also preceded her in death.
Born on October 29, 1926, Theresa was the daughter of the late Charles and Frances Kania Symuleski. Born in Scranton, she spent much of her early life traveling with her husband and family throughout the world as William served in the Air Force for over 25 years. She resettled in Scranton and was a member of Divine Mercy parish and a former member of St Mary's Czestochowa Church in Greenwood until its closing.
Theresa loved doing ceramics and painting even making a small business out of her ceramics. She would often donate items to charity or simply give them away to those who expressed that they liked what she did. She never thought of herself. But her joy in life was her grandson, Michael Paul.
Surviving are her son Michael and his wife, Terri, along with their son Michael Paul, her only grandchild. She loved her grandson like no one loved anyone and he loved her the same way back. They had a special bond. Also surviving is a daughter, Theresa, who helped care for her, and was with her at the end and her husband, Steve, and another son, John and his wife. She is also survived by a sister, Francis Yankelitis and several nieces and nephews who loved her.
The family held a private service in the Semian Funeral Home, 704 Union Street, Taylor. Burial followed in St. Mary Czestochowa Cemetery, Greenwood Section of Moosic. Her family will miss her deeply.
