Helen J. "Bunny" Gubanics

April 25, 1943 ~ August 21, 2019 (age 76)


Helen “Bunny” Gubanics, 76, of Scranton died August 21st at Mountain View Care Center surrounded by her family, after a battle with cancer. Her loving Husband of 57 years, Joseph “Digger” Gubanics, died March 25, 2019.  She is survived by her loving daughters Lora Mielo and Husband Joe, Carrie Gubanics and Fiance Charlie Powell.

Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Mo and Lena Bosak.  She is survived by her loving and caring Sister JoAnn Cummings and husband Joseph, Brother Joseph Bosak and wife Joanne, Niece Patricia Fitzsimmons and husband Daniel, Great Niece Alexandra Fitzsimmons, several nieces and nephews, sister and brother-in-laws.

She was schooled in the Scranton School District and, prior to the birth of her children, was employed in the garment industry.

Bunny enjoyed anything social.  You would often find her gathered in the meeting areas of Mountain View enjoying coffee and talks with her friends, greeting and offering hugs to those that would walk down the hall, attending Bingo, sharing her search-a-word books or a pen with anyone that needed one, watching a movie with her best friend and roommate Lucy, or out and about the town on Saturdays with her Daughters enjoying her favorite pastime – shopping! 

Her daughters would like to give special thanks to the dedicated staff at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Life Geisinger, and Mountain View Care Center.  Their professionalism, kindness, compassion, and care were truly outstanding and will never be forgotten. They would also like to send a heartfelt Thank You to the extended family they were fortunate to have met over the years at Mountain View. Terri, Judy, Jo, Lou, and Myron - the kindness and love you showed for our mother was similar to that you had for your own family.  We are truly blessed to know you and honored to call you our friends.                                                                   

She was preceded in death by mother Lena Bosak, Father Mo Bosak, Sister Sharon Maher, and Sister Delores Frances.

The funeral will be Saturday at 11 a.m. at Savino Traditional Funerals and Cremation Care, 157 S. Main Ave. in West Scranton, Carl J. Savino Jr., supervisor, with services by Deacon Carmine Mendicino. Entombment will take place in the Cathedral Cemetery, Scranton.
