Anna Bell Bobalik, 90, of Punxsutawney died Saturday, January 4, 2020 at Punxsutawney Area Hospital in Punxsutawney.

She was born June 16, 1929, in Punxsutawney, daughter of the late Andrew and Clara (Cerney) Gresock.

On Aug. 26, 1950 she married Peter Bobalik, who preceded her in death on May 28, 2015.

Prior to her retirement, she worked at the IUP-Punxsutawney campus cafeteria as an employee of Aramark.

Ann was a member of the Ss. Cosmas and Damian Roman Catholic Church.

Until 1972, she lived with her husband and children in the Flint, Michigan area where she worked for the Flushing, Mi. school district in school cafeterias. She was in training to be a nurse until her marriage.

Ann’s favorite pastimes were biking and camping with her husband, walking with her dog, baking pies, drinking coffee on her porch, and spending time with her children and grandchildren.  She also volunteered her time at the Punxsutawney Area Hospital, where she enjoyed interacting with the patients and the medical staff.

She is survived by two sons, Michael Bobalik and wife Jill of Sturgis, Mi., Gary Bobalik and wife Suzanne of Swartz Creek, Mi., and one daughter, Marlene Lellock and husband Jeffrey of Punxsutawney; two brothers, Andrew Gresock and Frank Gresock, both of Punxsutawney, three sisters, Barbara Drury of Swartz Creek, Mi., Mary Lou Gigliotti of Warren, Pa., and Marion Palmer of Corsica, Pa.

She is also survived by six grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, another great-grandchild on the way, and her dog, Misty.

She was preceded in death by brother William H. Gresock.

Friends will be received at the Richard L. Fait Funeral Home in Punxsutawney, Pa., on Friday, Jan. 10 from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.  

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 11 a.m. at Ss. Cosmas and Damian Roman Catholic Church with Rev. Msgr. Joseph J. Riccardo officiating.

Marlene, my sister Karen called me last week to tell me your mom passed. I am so sorry for your loss. I was reading the obituary and your father passed
in 2005. I didn’t know. I am so sorry I was not there for you. I think about you often. Barb
