Mary Irene Geis Schubert, 79, passed away on July 18, 2019 at Gino J. Merli’s Veterans Center in Scranton, PA after a five year courageous struggle of the after effects of three strokes she endured. She shared 51 years of marriage with her late husband, Francis “Frank” K. Schubert.

The family would like to thank the staff at Lithia Valley Manor, Dunmore Health Care Center, Gino J. Merli Veterans Center and Allied Hospice for the care and concern that each of them gave to her over the past five years.
