Monica C. Werner

Monica C. Werner, 91 of Wyalusing, PA, (formerly of Queens Road, St. Marys, Pa) passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 3, 2021, at Guthrie Towanda Memorial Hospital Skilled Nursing Home.

She was born on February 4, 1929 in St. Marys, daughter of the late Urban and Alvina Hoffman Gregory. She attended St. Mary’s Catholic School in her youth and married the late Paul Werner at  St. Mary’s Catholic Church in 1951, who preceded her in death in 2000.

She is survived by her two sons: Samuel Werner of St. Marys and Gregory Werner (June) of Wyalusing, Pa; four grandchildren: Michelle Ryden, Angela Simbeck, Nicholas Werner, and Christian Werner; and several great-grandchildren.  She is also survived by four sisters: Lillian Haller, Rose Marie Gregory, Alice Dollinger, and Irene Gregory; by three brothers: William, Gilbert, and Kenneth Gregory, all of St. Marys; and by many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband and parents, Monica was preceded in death by her daughter-in-law, Kathy Werner, her grandson, Brian Werner, her brother, Richard Gregory, and her sister, Patricia Gregory.

Monica worked at Sylvania until she married Paul.  She then continued her career as a lifelong seamstress in her community for many years.  She took great pride and had a true talent in her sewing creations, but also had excellent skills in knitting and crocheting many beautiful articles for her family and friends.  Monica was a longtime volunteer in the cafeteria at Queen of the World school, a service that she enjoyed and took great pride in serving the youth in her church community.  In addition, Monica enjoyed serving several years singing in the Queen of the World Church choir.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, February 13, 2021 from 9:00AM until 10:00AM at the Lynch-Radkowski Funeral Home.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in the Queen of the World Church on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at 10:30AM, with the Rev. Jeffery Noble, Pastor, officiating.  Burial will follow in the St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.

Dear Sam and Greg,
Just wanted to send my condolences on the death of your dear Mother. She taught Mary Beth and me how to use a sewing machine. Before we got a TV, she let us come next door every day to watch the Mickey Mouse Club. She was a dear lady, and I remember her fondly.
I also remember babysitting you boys — wow, that was a long time ago.
May the Peace of our Lord Jesus wrap around you and your families, and bring you comfort from this sorrow.

Dear Sam, Greg and June –

We loved Aunt Monica! She was in our lives since the beginning. Most recently we would pick her up for Sunday Mass and off to breakfast at DD’s. Pecan Tassies and Meringues at Christmas …camping in Lancaster …Mom and Monica in the choir …Sudoku …road trips to Roaring River Mills and Aunt Monica driving. So many memories. In our prayers forever. Love from her nieces Ann, Mary and Bonnie.

Greg, Sam, and families and all of the Gregory family, I was very sad to hear of Monica’s passing. My deepest condolences to you all. Monica was always a good neighbor and I have missed her since she moved away. I have fond memories of chatting with her as we pulled dandelions from her yard. I have an offshoot of her lilac bush that reminds me of her every day. She was a talented lady and took great pride in her home and yard. She loved her family dearly and always looked forward to family gatherings and car rides with her sisters and brothers.

Leave A Condolence
