Doris A. Moran, 83, passed away on Friday, March 28, at Allied Services Skilled Rehabilitation Center. Her husband, Jack Moran Sr., preceded her in death in 2012.
A lifelong resident of Scranton, Doris was the daughter of the late Carl and Betty Schoeps Merkel. She graduated from Scranton Technical High School and retired after years of service from The Scranton Times.
As so eloquently put by a dear neighbor, “she walked softly but her footprints were mighty.” Doris’s kindness, quick wit, and love of family will leave lasting memories for all of us. We are sure she will be missed by the many dear friends she made in her multiple card groups.
Surviving are her son, Jack Moran Jr., S. Abington Twp., and two daughters, Donna Rupp (Pete), Scranton, and Marilynn Segura (Jasmine), Redondo Beach, CA. Other surviving family members include sister-in-law Lois Moran, granddaughters Sara Rupp Heard (Bill) and Michelle Rupp Griggs (Scott), grandson Justice Segura, great-grandchild William Heard III, and son-in-law Tom Phillips. Doris is also survived by an aunt, niece, nephew, and several cousins.
Also preceding Doris in death are her daughter Deb Phillips, son Mark Mutz Moran, and sister Marilynn Kania.
The family would like to thank the staff at Regional Hospital and Allied Services Rehab for their care.
In light of current circumstances, burial will be private at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are in the care of the Solfanelli-Fiorillo Funeral Home Inc., 1030 N. Main Ave. Scranton.
