Mary Ann Baldan, 68, of Archbald, passed away Saturday, July 1st at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore after a valiant battle with AML. She is survived by her husband, Joseph J. Baldan. The couple was married for 49 years.
Born June 22, 1955, in Peckville, she was the daughter of the late Joseph Stellitano. Mary Ann graduated in 1973 from Valley View High School. She was formerly employed by Giant Market and subsequently as a Scanning Coordinator for Shoprite Supermarket of Eynon. She was a lifetime member of Christ the King Parish, Archbald.

She was also preceded in death by a brother-in-law, Joseph Krushinski and a nephew, Jesse Baldan.
A devout Catholic, Mary Ann faced her illness with resolve and fortitude. Although her body reached the end of its journey, her indomitable spirit will live on through the lives she has touched.
Mary Ann was a woman of remarkable strength, unwavering courage, and impeccable selflessness. With unconditional love, she prioritized her family’s needs above all else.
As a devoted wife, Mary Ann developed an unbreakable bond with her husband. Their commitment and partnership withstood the test of time and is a testament to their love for one another.
As a nurturing mother, she provided comfort, reassurance, and support. Sacrificing for her children was commonplace. Her reliability was stellar, and she was always there to listen with patience, empathy, and honesty.
Mary Ann’s radiant smile revealed her zest for life and the value she had for the happiest of moments. She enjoyed the presence of children and their youthful exuberance. Warm, sunny days were her favorite. She always looked forward to singing in church and dancing at events. The love she maintained for her in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins is unparalleled.
She will be greatly missed, and her memory will be eternally treasured.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to her family and friends for their love, prayers, and support. Utmost appreciation is also extended to her caregivers, doctors, and nurses.
