Marian D. Leo

February 20, 1935 — September 21, 2020

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

Born February 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 in 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 Saint Nicholas and enjoyed working at the annual Bazaar and other church functions.

She was 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 of Mountain Top, and son, Charles Anthony Leo, Jr. and his wife Elizabeth Cronin Leo of Shavertown; grandchildren, Monica Morgan, Robert Morgan, Jr., Trey (Charles, III) Leo and Coley (Nicole) Leo; brother, Walter Charles Bloom and his wife Cindy of Hollidaysburg; sisters-in-law, Carol Bloom of Kingston and Carolyn Bloom of Carlisle; 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.
