Marian D. Leo Obituary

Marian D. Leo, 85, a longtime resident of Wilkes-Barre, passed away peacefully on Monday, Sept. 21, 2020.

Born Feb. 20, 1935, in the Bloomfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh and raised in Kingston and Luzerne, she was a daughter of the late Charles E. and Helen Horton Bloom.

Marian was a graduate of Luzerne High School. She worked for RCA, Mountain Top, for several years and was a sales associate at BonTon before retiring. Her real passion, however, was her family. Marian devoted her entire life to her children and grandchildren - she never missed a sporting event or a grandparents' day and was always willing to cook or bake favorite dishes. She enjoyed passing along her favorite recipes to her children and grandchildren, who will continue to bake her dishes for years to come.

She was selfless and loving and we will dearly miss her constant love and support.

Marian was a devoted member of the Parish of St. Nicholas and enjoyed working at the annual bazaar and other church functions.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Charles A. Leo; siblings, Shirley, Florence, Charles and William Bloom; Beverly Perrego; Betty Alice Taylor; Charlotte Jones; and Barbara Anne Slatky also preceded her in death.

Marian will be greatly missed by her children, daughter, Marcella "Marcy" Leo Morgan and her husband, Bob Morgan, Mountain Top; and son, Charles Anthony Leo Jr. and his wife, Elizabeth Cronin Leo, Shavertown; grandchildren, Monica Morgan; Robert Morgan, Jr.; Trey (Charles III) Leo; and Coley (Nicole) Leo; brother, Walter Charles Bloom, Hollidaysburg; sisters-in-law, Carol Bloom, Kingston; and Carolyn Bloom, Carlisle; and nieces, nephews, other family and friends.

Marian's family is grateful for the incredible care provided by the wonderful staff at Allied Services Meade Street.

A celebration of Marian's life will begin with visitation from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday at McLaughlin's, 142 S. Washington St., Wilkes-Barre. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Saturday in Church of St. Nicholas.

Mask and social distancing protocols will be in effect.

Memorial donations are preferred and may be made to the Parish of St. Nicholas.
