The heavenly Polka Band is playing the "Zosia" Polka this day to welcome Sophie Hetro, 88 of Wyoming, as she made her presence on the evening of March 19, 2018.  No pains or aches anymore, Polka with Daddy forever.

Sophie left this world to reunite with our dear Lord and Heavenly Family peacefully at Wilkes Barre General Hospital.  

Formerly of Exeter, she was the daughter of the late Alex and Victoria Kubrak Yanushko.  She was married to the late Paul Hetro of Exeter.  She was predeceased by sisters Mary Lacomis, Ann Mutasavage, and twin sister Pauline Mesaris and brothers Joseph Yanushko and Steven Antonchik.

She is survived by Daughters: Paula Baum,Pittston, Vickie Arena (Daniel), Pittston, Roberta Sutton,Wyoming, with whom she resided with, and Mary Ellen Strzelczyk, Wyoming.

Great Grandchildren : Katlyn, Marissa, Anthony Arena, Jayden Arena, PJ and Angelina Baum, Logan Baum, and Gianna Sophia Fino along with several nieces and nephews.

Her kindness through life and gentle soul she shared with her family and friends.   Her homemade bread, haluski and other ethnic delights were always shared.  How did she ever feed so many people from one pot of soup and kneaded all those loaves of bread to give away to family and friends, when her health permitted.  Your cooking and baking is all done now, Mom, we will finish.  You did Good!

Sophie's Family would like to thank Dr. Charles Manganiello ( her Buddy) for all the care and love he gave her thru the years.
