August 29, 1960 - April 26, 2019
Ann Marie (Sokolowsky) Rowlands, R.N., age 58, a lifelong resident of Pittston, passed away Friday at Hospice of the Sacred Heart in Dunmore, after an illness. She is survived by her loving husband, Scott Bellerby.
Born in Pittston on August 29, 1960, and daughter of Bernadine (Dudzik) Sokolowsky of Pittston and the late Edward Sokolowsky, Ann Marie was a graduate of Pittston Area High School before studying at the former Pittston School of Nursing, ultimately earning her Degree in Nursing. For 22 years she worked as an R.N. for the Nesbitt Hospital, eventually merging into Wilkes Barre General Hospital. More recently, she worked as a private duty nurse prior to illness.
Ann Marie enjoyed the outdoors, especially fishing, camping and time with her pup, Willie. She was caring, loving, selfless and served as the nurse to both her patients and to, above all, her family whom she adored. She will be dearly missed.
She is also survived by her siblings, Judy Martinelli and husband David of Duryea, Bernadine Rink and husband Bob of Scranton, Theresa Wychoskie and husband Joseph of Pittston, Edward Sokolowsky and wife Nancy of Harding and John Sokolowsky of Pittston; and many nieces and nephews. Also preceding her in death were siblings, Stanley and Michael Sokolowsky and Mary Badyrka.
Private interment, St. John’s Cemetery in Duryea.
Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
