June 11, 1923 - February 23, 2016
IDA NILSSON Ida Nilsson, 92, of New Milford, PA entered into rest on February 23, 2016 at her home. She was married to the late Robert “Dunna” Nilsson, who predeceased her on May 6, 1995. She was also predeceased by her parents, Pauline and Morris Skalka, a brother, David Skalka. She is survived by a brother, Martin Skalka; several nieces and nephews, including Deanna Skalka; dear friends, Mary Ann and Skip Jorgenson, Joan and Doug Burman, and JR Wolfe; and many care givers, including Terry Frailey. The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to Betty Whitney for her dedication and compassionate care. We also thank Mary Ann, Skip, Joan, and Doug who ran to her aid whenever she called them, regardless of the time of day or her request. Hospice of the Sacred Heart also was a final blessing assisting with her care and we deeply appreciate Reverend Jane Pykus’ perfectly timed arrival. At a young age Ida learned to play the piano, knit, and crochet. Many people enjoyed listening to her play and enjoyed her intricate hand made gifts. She took great pleasure in selecting and adding dolls to her collection. Ida was an avid traveler with “Eastern Travel” with hundreds of trips to many destinations. With her special personality, she was the entertainment on many a trip and with a joke or two for all of her friends, she would lighten the mood on a long trip. Ida was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She could often be found Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday playing BINGO. A graveside service will be held in the spring at Lakeview Cemetery. At Ida’s request, there will be no public viewing. Arrangements are under the direction of the Tuttle-Yeisley Funeral Home, Inc., Hallstead, PA. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 600 Baltimore Drive, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702.
