Cheryl Ricci, 59, of Ransom, passed away Wednesday morning November 26, 2014 at Geisinger CMC Hospital, Scranton after a long, courageous battle with Lupus.

Born in Scranton, daughter of the late Benjamin and Stella Votano Ostroski. She was a graduate of Scranton Central High School and, before retiring, she was a loan officer at Tobyhanna Army Depot Federal Credit Union.
