Brittany Nicole Raymond
September 2, 2017
|Brittany Nicole Raymond, 26, passed away on Sept. 2 at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Hospital surrounded by her loving family.
Brittany was born on Feb. 6, 1991 in Jacksonville, N.C., grew up in Roaring Brook Twp., Pa., and (most recently) resided in Brodheadsville, Pa. She graduated from North Pocono High School in 2009, and attended Lackawanna College and Penn State University, studying biology.
She was the daughter of Kimberly (Rutsky) Raymond and her companion, Brian K. Hannis, of Naples, Fla.; and father, Nicholas Russell Raymond, of Effort, Pa. She was the maternal granddaughter of Dolores (Soroka) Rutsky and William Rutsky, of Brodheadsville, Pa.; as well as Marcy (Atkinson) and Nicholas Victor Raymond, of Effort.
She is also survived by her younger sister and best friend, Kourtney Marie Raymond, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. She leaves behind the love of her life, her beautiful 17-month old daughter, Madison Marie.
Brittany was an avid computer buff, she loved her Star Wars, making up silly yet profound anecdotes for her friends, and driving her flashy red sports car. She had the kindest heart and would help anyone she met. Her laugh was contagious and she was so full of energy.
The family would like to send a sincere thank you to Dr. Paul Arkless and nurse, Brittany Gresh, R.N. and the entire ICU staff at Geisinger Wyoming Valley for their gentle and loving care in her final days.
Brittany was an organ donor and through the Gift of Life (Philadelphia), she was able to save five other lives.
A celebration of life service will be conducted:
