Ann Marie Smargiassi, 64, of Scott Twp. and formerly of Dickson City, died Friday morning at VNA Hospice at Geisinger Community Medical Center, Scranton. She is survived by her husband, John "Jack" Smargiassi. They celebrated 42 years of marriage in September.
Born in Scranton, daughter of the late Stanley and Victoria Kluk Paczkowski, she was a member of the Church of St. Gregory, Clarks Green. She was a 1967 graduate of Dickson City High School and was a self-employed hairstylist.

One of Annie's other favorite pastimes, before her illness, was long walks through all seasons with her dog, Lady, and her daughter's dog, Zeus.
