Monessen

Ann Maisano, 94, of Monessen, passed away on Wednesday, January 31, 2024 in Jefferson Hospital, with her loving family by her side. She was born on August 26, 1929 in Monessen, the daughter of the late Ignazio and Catherine (Atria) Buffa. She was a member of Epiphany of our Lord Church, The Epiphany Ladies, Italian-American Heritage Society and loved spending time with her family. She possessed a unique ability to spread love effortlessly, and in return, she was cherished by all who had the privilege of crossing paths with her. Ann was not only extraordinarily generous but also a compassionate spirit. Her culinary talents were unmatched as she was the best cook, cookie maker, and birthday cake baker. She is survived by, Carol Gussman & Michael Wood of Pittsburgh, Aimee & Larry Pro of Monessen, Bob & Myra Maisano of Stuart, FL, Joe Maisano & Bob Cypher of Monessen, Granddaughters, Carisa & Dieter Quinn of Atlanta, GA, Amanda Gussman of Pittsburgh, grandsons, John Maisano of Monessen, Michael & Lindsey Maisano of Atlanta, GA; Great grandchildren, Max, Matilda, Monti, Rocco, John Micheal, and Giotto and by her loving companion Ruby. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her loving husband Michael "Mike" L. Maisano; two sons, John and Tom Maisano, great granddaughter Rose and sister, Rose Weiss. Friends will be received on Sunday February 4th, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm in the Dalfonso-Billick Funeral Home Inc. and Cremation Services, 441 Reed Avenue, Monessen. Services will be held on Monday, February 5th, beginning with a blessing service in the funeral home at 9:30 am followed by a Mass at 10:00 am, with Rev. Michael Crookston officiating. Interment will follow in the Grandview Cemetery. Ann had a profound connection to her Christian faith, beginning during her early years when she helped her mother in the cleaning of the old St. Cajetan Church Rectory on Schoonmaker Ave. Her spiritual journey laid the foundation for a life lived as an Earth Angel, a role model whose virtues we aspire to emulate. Throughout her life, Ann remained a steadfast beacon of faith, showcasing her beliefs through acts of compassion, boundless generosity, and dedicated volunteerism. She will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to the Epiphany of our Lord Church 44 Pennsylvania Blvd Monessen PA, 15062 or if you ever had Ann's cookies you can bring cookies for the cookie table at Ann's wake.
