    • Obituary
      Ann L. Rossi, 97, of West Hazleton, passed away Thursday at St. Luke Manor, Hazleton, where she had been a resident for the past 6 years.  Born in Hazleton, she was the daughter of the late Gerard and Anna Mazziota.
      Ann grew up in Freeland and attended Freeland High School where she graduated as an honor student.  As a teenager, she worked at Woolworths in downtown Hazleton.  She was married to her husband Peter for 68 years until his death in 2017. They resided in West Hazleton where they raised their two sons, Thomas and James.  Ann worked in the family business, Rossi’s Restaurant, as a hostess and baker.  She was well known for her delicious homemade pies.  Her main hobby was gardening.  She had a green thumb and her flowers, which adorned the front of her home, were a sight to see.  In her later years she enjoyed traveling with her husband Pete throughout the US and overseas.
      Ann was a beautiful and kind woman with a wonderful smile.  She was a devout Catholic  and a member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Hazleton and most recently a member of Holy Name of Jesus Parish at Transfiguration Church, West Hazleton.
      She was preceded in death, in addition to her parents and husband, by brothers Al and Stan and sister Connie.  Ann is survived by her two loving sons, Thomas and James, West Hazleton, and nieces and nephews.
      The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at St. Lukes’ Manor and all the healthcare workers who cared for Ann over these past several years.  You were her angels.
      Her Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, November 14th, at 10 A.M. in Holy Name of Jesus Parish at Transfiguration Church, West Hazleton.  Burial will be held privately in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery, Hazleton.  The family will receive friends in the Joseph A. Moran Funeral Home, 229 W. 12th ST., Hazleton, Monday, November 13th, from 6-8 P.M.
