Obituary of Florence A. Donahoe

Florence A. Donahoe, age 92, died peacefully Friday, October 15, at her home in Galloway Township, NJ, with her grand-niece and caretaker, Chelsee Skurla, at her side. Born June 15, 1929, in Trenton, NJ, Florence was the daughter of the late Andrew J. and Anna (Bascik) Skurla. She grew up in Trenton, NJ and moved to various locations in the state before settling in Galloway Township for the last 30 years. Florence enjoyed a lengthy career for the NJ Casino Control Commission as a legal secretary, retiring in 2010 at the age of 81. Florence was a carefree and deeply religious spirit, praying the rosary every day. She enjoyed multiple trips to Europe and the Holy Land and loved spending time and having dinners with her family on Holidays and special occasions. One of her favorite enjoyments were her many visits to the Atlantic City casinos with her brother, Andy, her niece, Margie, and several friends. She loved westerns, watching every episode of every 60’s era western ever made. A favorite food request was Jeff’s home-made sauce with spaghetti and meatballs and Chelsee’s peach cobbler. In addition to her parents, Florence was predeceased by her husband Frank, her son Victor, and her five brothers, Walter, Joseph, Edward J., Rev. Robert and Andrew Skurla. She is survived by her loving Grand-niece and special care-giver Chelsee Skurla; her nieces Marjorie Callahan, and her husband Jeff, and Sandra Skurla; her Grand-nephew Adam Callahan, and his wife Taylor; Grand-nieces Shannon San Filippo, and her husband Matthew, Beth Ann Stas, and her husband Alex, Sara Halter, Lindsey Meyer, and her husband Seth; and her great-grand nieces/nephews Gianna Trani, James McDonough, Jeffrey Halter, Nicolas Andrew San Filippo and Mia San Filippo. A Mass of Christian Burial will be at 11:00 am, Monday, October 25, 2021 at Saint Mary of the Assumption Byzantine Catholic Church, Grand and Malone Streets, Trenton, NJ.
