Wilkes-Barre & Avoca obituaries


Obituaries act as quiet reminders of the finite nature of our lives. Yet, for those who have recently experienced the death of a family member or friend, an obituary means so much more. It is a bittersweet reminder of all we've lost, but it can also help us to remember all we enjoyed while they were alive. If you have recently lost someone you love, we hope that you will accept our condolences.

Below is a listing of all of our recent local Wilkes-Barre & Avoca obituaries and death notices. Both our current services and past services are available for friends and family to revisit and reflect on the memories of your loved one. Each of the local obituaries comes with an interactive online memorial. Within each memorial is the obituary/death notice of the deceased, a space to leave messages of condolence, a section to share photos and videos, a store to purchase funeral flowers and so much more.

Please browse below to find the obituary for your loved one and feel free to share with friends and family across your social media pages. We encourage all of our visitors to leave a message of condolence or share a memory within the memorial tribute site to help others with the remembrance process and show how the deceased positively impacted so many people during their lifetime.
