Priest’s Rites Set Tuesday

Rev. Vincent Aszuk Dies in Mercy Hospital After Long Illness

Rev. Vincent Aszuk, 56, Newport Township native, died late Friday night at Mercy Hospital, where he had been a patient since May 28.

Rev. Father Aszuk had served in Peoria, Ill., Diocese and in the arch diocese of Philadelphia until ill health forced him to be relieved of his duties. He had spent the last year with his mother, Mrs. Anna Aszuk, 108 Hillside Street, Wilkes-Barre.

Born in Sheatown, Newport Township, he was educated in Wilkes-Barre schools and was a graduate of St. Victor’s Theological Seminary at Kankakee, Ill. He was ordained into the Roman Catholic priesthood on April 26, 1925 at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Peoria, Ill.

In addition to his mother, he is survived by a sister, Sister M. Rosalia, stationed in Chicago; a brother, Dr. Joseph C. Aszuk, Wilkes-Barre; and two nieces, Jean Emil Aszuk and Barbara Ann Aszuk.

Remains were removed to the funeral home, 398 East South Street, where friends may call until 4 this afternoon when the body will be transferred to Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Remains will lie in state until Tuesday at 10:30, when a solemn high mass of requiem will be celebrated.

Burial will be in priests’ plot at Holy Trinity Cemetery, Bear Creek.
