Remembering Romaine Naro

Romaine Naro
February 5, 2021

Romaine Naro, of Dunmore, died peacefully Friday morning at Geisinger-Community Medical Center, Scranton.

Ronnie (as friends knew her) was born in Buffalo, NY, under miraculous circumstances. She was the daughter of the late Mary Evancho. She was a devout Catholic and a member of SS. Anthony and Rocco Parish in Dunmore and participated as an officer and member in numerous church organizations including being the current president of the 50 Plus Club and a member of the MAC Club. Besides being a quintessential mother and homemaker, Ronnie worked in several other capacities — being a private-duty nurse was her favorite. Ronnie’s love for travel and her impeccable taste in fashion were reflected in the many places she visited (often with her dear departed sister-in-law Lorraine) and the clothes she wore. She was an avid audiophile and often showed her sons up with her eclectic taste in music, especially jazz.

Romaine is survived by her loving husband, Vincent Naro, with whom she recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in September. Ronnie, herself, had survived the adventures of her three sons – Brian, Gerard (Jerry), and Scott, who managed to take their mother into the deepest canyons of Utah and ascend some of the highest mountains of their longtime adopted state of Colorado. Ronnie is also survived by her two dear goddaughters, Mary Ellen Jennison of Endwell, NY, and Brenda Borys of Greenfield Twp., PA — they both lovingly supported their Aunt Ronnie when her sons could not be there. Ronnie had many other nieces and nephews — all of whom she was very fond. She also had an infinite number of friends — several of whom were quite special to her.

Ronnie’s surviving family thanks all who have helped in caring for her and her husband in these recent times — you know who you are. With sincere gratitude from us, may you all be blessed — for you have blessed us all with your help.

Family and friends are invited to a Catholic Mass of Christian Burial, which will be celebrated on Saturday, February 20th, at 11 a.m., in St. Anthony of Padua Church, Smith St., Dunmore. Everyone attending will please follow current safety guidelines: wearing a mask over both your nose and mouth and practicing social distancing. Those unable to attend the mass are invited to livestream the funeral via the funeral home Facebook page.

There will be an additional remembrance and celebration of Ronnie’s life, which is planned for late summer 2021.

Arrangements: Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home, Inc., Dunmore.
