Avis Moran, 82, of Honesdale, died Monday November 1st at home after an illness. She was the widow of Edward J. Moran, who died January 4, 2010.
Born in Carbondale, daughter of the late Martin and Gertrude Medland Judge, she was a member of St. John the Evangelist Parish, Honesdale, where she was a member of the Rosary Group, a CCD Teacher, frequent worshiper at the Adoration Chapel, and volunteer for the annual block party. She was a graduate of Benjamin Franklin High School, Carbondale. She enjoyed going for coffee with her friends after attending mass; she also greatly enjoyed her outings with her dear friend Frannie Simon. She liked being on the go, whether to the casinos, her grandkids' many activities, or just a ride in the country for a treat. Nana's treats she loved to bake were blueberry muffins and banana bread which were enjoyed by all.
The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of the Regional Hospital of Scranton, Superior Home Health, Allied Hospice, and Drs. Delserra and Peters for the compassionate care given to Avis.
