Mary Ann Burdo Geary, 80, died November 11, 2023, at Hickory House Nursing Home in Honey Brook following her latest battle with cancer.
Born in Belmont Hills, Mary Ann attended St. John’s High School in Manayunk, and received an Associate’s Degree from Gwynedd Mercy College, and was married in 1965 at St. John Vianney Parish in Gladwyne, to Robert P. Geary. Mary Ann & Bob lived in Belmont Hills, Audubon, and North Coventry, PA before retiring to Tolchester, MD and Port St. Lucie, FL. In 2022, they returned to PA, to be closer to family, given Bob’s failing health. Mary Ann enjoyed reading, playing cards, swimming, traveling, cooking and eating. She hosted many parties over her life for friends and family. Her health declined rapidly after Bob’s death in the Spring, including many falls, which revealed pancreatic cancer.
Surviving are her four children: Regina M. (Tim Bleck), Robert M. (Jeannie Guerrera), Rosemarie M. (Michael Murdoch), and Randee M. (Kevin Twardowski). Her brothers, Frank (Dolores, now deceased) Burdo, and Michael Burdo survive her, in addition to brother-in-law, Bill (Marsha) Geary, and sister-in-law, Phyllis.
Grandmother to Christian and Megan (Pete Barry) Hock; Nicholas (Andi) Harris, Timothy Harris, Danielle (Thomas Calhoun) and Gabrielle Murdoch; Rian, Austen, Grayson, Sabrina, and Xander Waldbrunn; with great-grandchildren Peter and Jameson Barry, Lucas and Isabelle Harris, and Kai Cort. Mary Ann is predeceased by her parents, Salvatore and Alice Burdo, and grand-daughters Aislinn Alice Bleck and Julianna Geary Twardowski.
