Obituary of Kathleen King

Kathleen "Kerry" King, of Jackson, PA, passed away peacefully in her sleep on November 16, 2018, after a hard-fought battle with lung cancer.

A loving mother and sole provider, Kerry's favorite pastime was caring for and enjoying the company of her seven children and seventeen grandchildren; family meant everything to her. She created many special holiday traditions that will continue through her children; Saint Patrick's Day was very special to her. Kerry was an avid reader as well, and could often be found sleeping with a book still in her hands.

Kerry was predeceased by her parents, Bucky and Harriet Killins, and nephew, Eric Wahl. Kerry is survived by her sisters, Krista Killins, Glendale, AZ; and Anne Wahl, Eatontown, NJ; her children Daniel Brown and wife, Debi, Dickson City, PA; Sean Gaynor and wife Brittany, Great Bend, PA; William "Andy" Gaynor and wife Carli, Forest City, PA; Kathleen Gaynor and fiancé Ben, Jackson, PA; Nora Jones and husband Jeremy, Clifford, PA; Tony Gaynor and wife Atlanta, Factoryville, PA; and Kerry Gaynor and future husband Matt, Brooklyn, PA; and her two nieces, Missy and Jenny; and nephew, Michael.

The family would like to thank the many nurses, social workers, and others who made Kerry as comfortable as possible in her final days. A very special thank you to her many doctors and nurses who treated her throughout her battle with cancer; particularly, Dr. Patel and Nurse Terri. Finally, her children would like to thank Kerry for loving them and raising them to be the men and women they are today.

Arrangements were entrusted to Shifler-Parise Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Clifford, PA.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in her name to Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 100 William St, Dunmore, PA.
