Hilda Rose Burda, 74, of Old Forge, died unexpectedly this past Saturday, January 23, surrounded by her loved ones. Rose was born in Greenock, Scotland to the late John and Margaret McLane. She was a graduate of Greenock Schools and worked as a machine operator for Scranton Lace and retired as a local retail clerk. Rose enjoyed life to the fullest, whether it was a weekend trip to a new city, a family gathering, or babysitting her adopted grandchildren. She was a fun, spunky and feisty lady who you could not pull off of the dance floor. One of her favorite trips was to NYC over St. Patrick’s Day celebrating her birthday. Rose was a kind soul and faithful friend; she will forever be our “Dancing Queen”. Rose is survived by her adopted family; her best friend Claire King, her adopted daughter, Ashley King Gyuriska and husband Greg, adopted grandsons, Gregory Jr and James IV. Rose was also an adopted sister of the Schuh and King families. In addition to her parents, Rose was preceded in death by her infant daughter, adopted brother, James King Jr., and adopted son, James King III. Rose is also survived by her son, Richard Schick, four grandchildren, Kailey, Emily, Molly and Lily and two great grandchildren, Olivia and Eloise. Following her wishes, there will be no viewing, no funeral or memorial services. Interment will be private. Rose entrusted her wishes to the care and direction of the Edward J. Chomko Funeral Home & Cremation Services, West Scranton.
