Sally Drazdowski, 80, formerly of Bloom Avenue, North Scranton, died peacefully Saturday at the Neighborhood Hospice of Chester County, West Chester, surrounded by her loving family. She and the love of her life, William Drazdowski Sr., were married July 4, 1949. William died in 2001.
Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late James and Esther Bennett Kane. She was a member of Mary, Mother of God Parish at Holy Rosary Church and had been a member of the former St. Joseph's Lithuanian Church, both in North Scranton. She was a graduate of Holy Rosary High School and had been employed by Wickam's Potato Chips and the Sutcliff Bridal Salon. However, her favorite job was raising her three children. She enjoyed raising money for the March of Dimes, leading her Girl Scout troop and sewing.
During her many illnesses, she would always keep a smile on her face. When asked how she felt, her response would always be, ""With My Hands.""
