NANCY M. PESTA January 17, 1931 - November 20, 2019

November 20, 2019

NANCY M. PESTA, 88, formerly of West Pittston and West Wyoming, and a current resident of Wesley Village, passed away peacefully Wednesday in the Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.

Born in Wyoming, she was the daughter of the late Arthur and Bertha (Conyard) Canouse. She attended Wyoming High School and was employed for 17 years at the former Kluger’s Store, Wyoming. She was also a member of the Wyoming United Methodist Church.

Preceding her in death was her husband of 55 years, Michael L. Pesta 2010, sister Luella Grieshaber and her beloved dog, Harley.

Surviving is her daughter Kimberly DeAngelo and her husband Mark, Exeter and grandchildren Morgan and Mitchell DeAngelo, whom she thought the world of. Also surviving are nieces, nephews and cousins.

Nancy was most certainly a people person and would know someone’s life story after just one conversation. She loved the Hallmark Channel, scratch off lottery tickets, her can of Coke and potato pancakes. Not to mention, she had a scarf and nail polish to match every outfit for every occasion. Some of Nancy’s greatest joys were spending time with her grandchildren, reading and visiting Lancaster and 1000 Islands.

We would like to give a special thank you to the staff at Wesley Village,that Nancy adored, along with the Bayada staff, especially Cheryl.

A memorial service will be held Saturday at 4pm in the Metcalfe Shaver Kopcza Funeral Home Inc 504 Wyoming Avenue Wyoming.

Interment will be at the convenience of the family.

Friends may call Saturday 2-4pm in the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the SPCA of Luzerne County, or a charity of the donor’s choice.

    I had the honor and privilege of caring for Nancy for several years She was a positive and loving person who you could sit and talk too for hours on end. She loved her family and was so very proud of her daughter Kim and her grandchildren and all that they accomplished with their lives so far Know she is at peace and Harley I’m sure is snuggled up on her lap -I will miss her dearly
