John "Jack" D. Sileo

John “Jack” D. Sileo, 74, of Dunmore died Monday at home. He is survived by his wife, the former Mary Angela Pace. The couple celebrated 51 years of marriage on May 8 2011.

Born in Scranton, he was the son of the late Thomas and Margaret Davis Sileo and was a member of SS Anthony and Rocco Parish, Dunmore. He was a 1955 Dunmore High School Graduate and was the owner and operator of Anna Maria’s Restaurant in Dunmore for the past 26 years.
