Mary A. Fastiggi, 83, formerly of Dunmore, passed away on Tuesday at Geisinger-C.M.C. Hospital after a brief illness. She had been a resident of Mountain View Nursing Care Center for 12 years.
Born in Dunmore on October 16, 1928, she was the daughter of the late Vito Michael and Rose Mary Martinelli Fastiggi. Mary was a member of SS. Anthony and Rocco Parish, Dunmore. She graduated from Dunmore High School Class of 1946, and worked for several years as a sewing machine operator at clothing textile businesses in Scranton until her retirement resulting from a neuromuscular physical disability.
Mary was a devout Catholic Christian who was devoted in worship to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She enjoyed spending time with her family and doing special things whenever physically possible, such as taking in minor league Yankee games at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre stadium. She also enjoyed bingo and big wheel games at Mountain View Care Center. Mary was a very personal woman who reached out in loving friendship to many of the other residents of Mountain View Care Center. Mary’s family expresses their deep felt thanks to Dr. Salvatore Lawrence and appreciation to the staff at Mountain View Care Center for attending to her personal health care needs over the many years. They also express their gratitude for the special care provided to Mary by the ICU staff at the Geisinger-C.M.C. Hospital.
