Mary N. Herron age 86, formerly of Duryea, passed away July 23,2020 at Fernwood Manor, Hunlock Creek.

Born in Whites Crossing, she was the daughter of the late John and Nellie Dziadkowicz Oblazney. She was educated in Carbondale area schools.

Mary was a member of Nativity of Our Lord Parish, Duryea.

Mary loved the outdoors, camping with her sons all summer at Lake Ladore for many years when they were children. They will cherish these memories always.  She had a great fondness for animals, having had many pets over the years.  Her talent for growing flowers was obvious to anyone who had the pleasure of visiting her backyard. Some of these plants are still growing in the yards of her children and grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Robert G. Herron in 1991, and by her brother Joseph.

Mary is survived by her sons Bryan and his wife Arlene of Dallas, PA, Mark and his wife Sherilyn of Nanticoke and Kenneth of Laflin . She is also survived by her brother Frank of Vestal, NY, 13 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter as well as three nieces.

The family would like to thank the staff of Fernwood Manor for their excellent care and compassion toward Mary during her stay there. They would also like to thank the staff of Hospice of the Sacred Heart for helping care for Mary in her final days.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday, August 3, 2020, at 10:30 am in Holy Rosary Church, 127 Stephenson Street, Duryea with the Rev. John Polednak officiating.
