Mary Lou (Lydon) Biondi, age 81 and a longtime Clarks Summit resident, passed away Friday evening at Allied Hospice in Scranton after an illness. On November 15, 2004, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband, James A. Biondi.
Born in Scranton on October 15, 1941 and daughter of the late William and Mary (McGuire) Lydon, Mary Lou was a graduate of the former South Scranton Catholic High School. She ultimately retired as a word processor for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Dunmore branch.
A devoted Roman Catholic, Mary Lou was a pillar of the Our Lady of the Snows Parish community in Clarks Summit where she was a member of both the Womens Guild and the Altar and Rosary Society. When she wasn’t volunteering for the church, she was enjoying herself on all church organized bus trips. She certainly loved her church family.
Mary Lou was genuinely sweet, kind and generous. She found joy in doing good for others, enjoyed a great dinner and, above all else, loved spending time with her adoring family. She will be dearly missed by family and friends alike.
She is survived by her siblings, Gerald Lydon and wife Mary Ann of Scranton and Thomas Lydon of Jessup; nieces, Amy Evans, Jen Bustos and Melissa Lydon; nephews, Jerry and David Lydon; and great nieces, great nephews and friends. Brothers, Willam and Jack Lydon, also preceded her in death.
Her family would like to thank the staffs of both Allied Hospice and HHCP for the collective care and kindness shown to Mary Lou throughout her illness.
Funeral services are scheduled to begin on Monday at 8:30 AM from the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton, with a 9:30 AM Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of the Snows, 301 State Street in Clarks Summit, to be celebrated by Msgr. Joseph Quinn, Pastor. Burial will follow at the Cathedral Cemetery.
Family and friends may pay respects on Sunday between 3-6:00 PM at the funeral home.
Memorial contributions may be made in Mary Lou’s name to Our Lady of the Snows Parish.
