Ethel Ann Skon (nee Kukucska) was born April 20, 1937 in Budapest Hungary as Etelka Ann Kukucska. She came to this country as a small girl and was kidnapped by Romanian Gypsies in Italy and had to be escorted by their police to the ship that would carry little Ethel and her parents to Staten Island, NY. Ethel met and married and had 7 children: Donna (Robert) Wortman, Richard Skon (deceased), Karen (Louis) Ciavolella, Mark Skon (deceased), Gregory Skon, Robert Skon and Charlie Skon.

But the ones who will miss her fiercely are her children 5, grandchildren 16, great-grand-children 25, and great-great-grand-child 1. Also nieces and nephews.

This wonderful woman joined the Lord May,18, 2019 alongside her parents Charles and Mary Kukucska, children Richard and Mark Skon, and granddaughter Christine Tuite.

There are many memories that I keep with me of my grandmother. But the earliest was of her cooking. She was always cooking something, and it was always good. I feel like our legendary Skon hunger was breed in her kitchen. I loved her so much. And I will forever miss her. She was an amazing woman. She raised amazing and talented children.
