Ann M. Surridge, age 86, a longtime Taylor resident, passed away Monday at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, after a recent illness. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, William J. Surridge.
Born in Moosic on November 1, 1930 and daughter of the late Frank and Michalina Murawski Malinowski, Ann attended the former Woodrow Wilson School. A pillar of Divine Mercy Parish and formerly St. John the Baptist Church in Taylor, she was active in the Church’s Altar and Rosary Society, the R.C.I.A. Program, the Pro-Life Board, and as a catechist teacher for the C.C.D. Program.
Active in the Taylor Borough, she served on the board of the Taylor Little League’s Ladies’ Auxiliary, the Taylor Democratic Party, and the P.T.A. for the Washington and Taylor High School District, where she also worked as a school truant officer.
Also very active in local politics, she worked on countless Taylor Borough and Lackawanna County campaign elections, serving a term as the 5th Ward Committee Chairwoman. She was a volunteer for many charitable organizations, receiving acknowledgement in appreciation from St. Jude Children’s Hospital, the American Cancer Society and St. Francis of Assisi Soup Kitchen. She was also a volunteer driver for the Taylor Seniors mini van bus.
Prior to her retirement, she worked as a home health care aid and was the Health Officer for the Taylor Borough Board of Health. Taken from her loved ones unexpectedly at 86 years young, Ann will forever be missed by her family and friends.
