Born in Moosic on December 1, 1934, Anna Mae was the daughter of the late Andrew and Margaret (Smith) Belles. Educated at Moosic Schools, she had lived in Easton for over 20 years upon her marriage to Bill. A lifelong sewing machine operator, she was a longtime member of the I.L.G.W.U.
She was a devoted member of the Moosic Alliance Community Church where its congregation was truly an extended family to her.
She enjoyed cooking, especially for her family, and she utilized her longtime sewing skills as the family seamstress. She’ll be forever missed by her loved ones.
She is survived by her beloved sisters and brother-in-law who served as devoted caregivers since Bill’s passing, Beverly Webb of Moosic and Mildred Godlewski and husband Frank of Taylor; her step-son, William Hughes, Jr. and wife Sharon of Easton, and grandchildren, William, III and Tracy; and many nieces and nephews.
Brothers, Ambrose, Joseph and Howard Belles, all preceded her in death.
Her family would like to thank both Dr. Kenneth Sebastianelli and staff for his longtime care and also Lauren and Angelo Sperlazzo for the selfless care and kindness shown to Anna Mae throughout the years.
Funeral services are scheduled for Saturday at noon in the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, to be celebrated by Rev. Erik J. Ferguson. Burial will follow at the Spring Brook Cemetery. Family and friends may pay their respects on Saturday from 10:00 AM until noon at the funeral home.
