Anne C. Woodmancy

Anne C. Woodmancy, 73, of Jenkins Township, passed away Sunday, April 11, 2021, in Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, with her loving family by her side.

Born in Pittston on January 22, 1948, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Helen (Mullins) Corcoran.

Anne was a graduate of St. John the Evangelist High School, Pittston. She enjoyed her many years as a teacher’s aide at St. John the Baptist School in Pittston. She and her husband went on to start their family business, Pittston Machine Works, which they operated until their retirement.

Anne loved a good snowstorm and a rainy day. She enjoyed her campfires and friends at Onawandah Campground. She was a friend to everyone. Everywhere she went, people flocked to her. Anne and her husband, Terry, enjoyed their friends tremendously at the Willow Tree (Charlie B’s).

Every Thursday, she looked forward to shopping with her beloved sister, Mary Jo. She was more than a sister to her five brothers; She raised them as her own, once their parents passed too early. She was their everything, forever and always. Her nieces and nephews were all like grandchildren to her. She loved them with every ounce of her being. To Anne, there was no love like the love for a grandchild. Her “Little Man” Gavin and her “Princess” Camryn lit up her world. Her son-in-law, David, was forever changing light bulbs for her. He was her Mr. Fixit when it came to technology and all household chores. Her daughter, Helene, was the wind beneath her wings. They were best friends, always singing Tiffany songs together. She was married to the love of her life and best friend, Terry, for 48 years until his passing in July 2020. Her heart was broken and she is finally reunited with him in heaven.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Joseph “Terry” Woodmancy in 2020; brother, Francis Corcoran; and brother-in-law, William Emanuel.

Surviving are her daughter, Helene Woodmancy and her husband David Wisnoski, Telford; grandchildren, Gavin and Camryn Wisnoski; sister, Mary Jo Corcoran Emanuel, Jenkins Township; brothers, James Corcoran and his wife Eve, Avoca; Joseph Corcoran and his wife Mary, Irwin; Brian Corcoran and his wife Joan, Dallas; and Kevin Corcoran, Jenkins Township; brother-in-law Gene Woodmancy, Moosic; mother-in-law, Sharon Woodmancy, Pittston Township; numerous nieces and nephews.
