Obituaries published from the Schuylkill County area. 


John J. "Bo" Bosack, 65, of Dover, York County, formerly of Buck Run, passed away at home on Wednesday.

Born on August 14, 1957, in Pottsville, he was a son of Catherine “Kitty” (nee Wolinsky) Bosack, Buck Run, and the late John F. Bosack. He was a 1975 graduate of Minersville Area High School; and was a member of the 1974 Battlin’ Miners Class B Championship football team. He attended Stevens Trade School and later graduated from Penn State with a degree in Electrical Engineering. He was employed by PPL, retiring in 2014.

He was a former member of St. Matthew the Evangelist Church, Minersville, and currently worshipped at St. Rose of Lima Parish, York.

After moving to York County, John maintained a small farm in Thomasville where he raised chickens. His engineering background led him to a lifetime of tinkering with cars, his motorcycle and tractor collection, and pretty much anything that required maintenance.

John is survived by his son, Matthew Weir (spouse, Kristen), Barto; two grandchildren, Hunter and Peyton Weir. He is also survived by four siblings, Deborah Stansbury (spouse, Neal), Orefield, Carol Fox (spouse, Daniel), Allentown, Kathleen Bosack, Buck Run, and David Bosack, Connecticut; a nephew, Tyler Fox; four nieces, Amanda Pace (spouse, Tyler), Tara, Nicole and Olivia Stansbury; his lifelong friends, Pete Lalic and his family, who were always by his side.

The family will accept visitors at Dutcavich Funeral Home, 200 Sunbury Street, Minersville, on Saturday from 8:00 A.M. until Morning Vigil at 10:00 A.M. Procession will form at 10:15 A.M. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 A.M. in St. Matthew the Evangelist Church, 139 Spruce Street, Minersville. Interment will be in St. Stanislaus Kostka #2 Cemetery, Branch Township. The family prefers contributions to the American Cancer Society.


Marlene Ann Miller
, 72, formerly of Tamaqua, Pennsylvania departed from her physical body on March 27, 2023 as a resident of the Greenwood Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Hometown

Born on July 27th, 1950 in Poughkeepsie, NY Marlene was a daughter of the late Coal Miner Frances and “Little Musillini” Marcella (nee Kazacavage) Kazlosky and sister to the late Loretta Arruza and Elsie Kowalski.

Marlene is survived by her 3 children, Joseph Wharran of Lake Wales, FL and Denise Wharran of Tampa, FL and Andrea Simonelli of Dubai, UAE as well as her 2 grandchildren, great granddaughter and extended family.

Our mother was Catholic and would often hum the tune of “Jesus Christ Superstar”. She will always be remembered for her favorite mullet hairstyle, impressive billiard skills, exceptional talent growing the ‘Night Blooming Cyrus’ and love of all animals, especially horses. She was an avid “collector” of anything and EVERYTHING, especially AVON.

Marlene is known for her ‘straight-shooting’ knack for telling it like it was and severe lack of patience. She wasn’t the warmest woman, yet she was sweating all of the time. Cut-and dry, she either liked you a lot, or she didn’t like you at all. As her children, that was confusing. As adults, we know she loved us and did the best she could with what she had in this lifetime.

Marlene’s 20 year journey with MS decreased her quality of life significantly, destroying her ability to walk and diminished her ability to remember our faces. Her children ask that you take the time to express appreciation for the simple things in life that are often taken for granted, tell those close to your heart that you love them and tell them often and if you feel inspired, to perform a random act of kindness in her memory instead of donations.

Private Arrangements entrusted to the E. Franklin Griffiths Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Inc. of 655 East Broad Street Tamaqua, Pennsylvania 18252. (570) 668-2550
