Elizabeth (Betty) A. (Nolan) Mack, age 91, passed away on May 17, 2019 surrounded by her loving family. Liz/Betty was born in Carbondale, Pa, one of three children. She graduated from Carbondale, Pa High School as Class Valedictorian. She enjoyed reading and never lost her love of knowledge, her moral compass, or her wit. Betty’s greatest love and joy was spending time with family and friends. She worked as an office manager at JC Penny until she met and married James R. Mack. They moved shortly thereafter to Binghamton, New York, where as devoted parents they raised five loving children on Moffatt Avenue, Anne (Nancy)/Wayne Rounds, Joseph/Rose Mack, James/Lisa Mack, Robert/Celeste Pazzaglini-Mack, and Suzanne/Michael Finger. After her husband’s untimely death, in 1975, Betty worked for the Four County Library System for many years as the business manager until she retired at age72 and then worked part time as a controller for a private business until age 87. Betty enjoyed traveling and was fortunate to visit England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, the Holy Land, Egypt, Mexico and many places in the US including Alaska and Hawaii. Betty was predeceased by her parents Thomas / Elizabeth Nolan, her brother Joseph Nolan, her grandchildren Jack Rounds and John Mack, and friend Richard Fairchild. She is survived by her brother Richard / Joanne Nolan and her sister in law Janet Nolan. Betty had twenty wonderful grandchildren, Elizabeth Cole, Jack Rounds, April MacNamee, Mason Rounds, Amanda Rounds, Abigail Rounds, Halley Patak, Ellyn Rounds, Kelly Mack, Chris Mack, Ryan Mack, Kevin Mack, James Mack, Erin Slavik, John Mack, Kerry Mack, Connor Mack, Colin Mack, Lawson Finger and Nolan Finger.

Betty was deeply faithful and never missed her rosary or the many prayer cards she read daily to honor and remember all who went before her.
