Obituary

Obituary for Catherine Ann Discenza

Catherine Ann Discenza was born on December 26, 1951 to Edward and Cathleen Mullin. She passed away on January 22, 2020 at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital after a long battle with COPD. She was 68 years of age. As a young woman Catherine attended Dominican Commercial High School, graduating in 1969. She went on to work as an administrative assistant and bank teller in several companies including Bigelow Carpet,
Drexel Burnham Lambert, Colombia Savings Bank and Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. She met the love of her life, Stephen, in 1972 at a friend’s wedding. Catherine’s Aunt told her to stay away from the one with the goatee. Despite her Aunt’s warning, Catherine and Steve married on May 4, 1974 and were married over 45 years. Their dedication to each other was remarkable. Catherine and Steve welcomed two children, Edward (1975) and Jacqueline (1979) early in their marriage and raised them in their home in Woodhaven, where they lived for 30 years. Catherine and Steve loved to travel and spend time in their vacation home in Pennsylvania. In 2005 they were able to trade their vacation home for a permanent home in Albrightsville, PA. In 2012 Catherine and Steve retired and began to further pursue their love of travel, even taking a trip across the country and spending time in the Outer Banks, NC each summer with their children, grandchildren, sisters and nieces. Catherine picked up a love of crocheting, making beautiful gifts for all of her family to be treasured, as well as a passion for being proud of her five Grandsons. In 2013 they bought their second home in Apache Junction, AZ where they would escape the cold winters of Pennsylvania. Shortly after, she began her long and fierce battle with lung cancer and COPD, never giving up until the very end. She was stronger than she will ever know.
Catherine is survived by her husband, Stephen Discenza, her son and his wife, Edward and Julie Discenza, her daughter and her husband, Jacqueline and Alan Rosa, her five Grandsons,
Tyler Discenza, Steven Discenza, Lawrence Neuburger, Aidan Discenza, and Jordan Rosa. She is also survived by her sister and her husband, MaryEllen and Alex Krowicki, her sister, Jean Mullin, her three nieces and their husbands, Christine and Anthony Saravo, Jeanmarie and Przemek Dabrowski, and Debra Krowicki, and her two great nieces and great nephew, Julianna Saravo, Angelia Saravo, and Przemek Dabrowski.
