Maryann Plisiewicz

April 22, 1959 — October 9, 2022

MaryAnn (Brocious) Plisiewicz, 63, passed away in her family’s arms on Sunday, October 9, 2022, in her home after a sudden acute illness complicated by the late effects of cancer treatment. She overcame many challenges that life tossed her way, including surviving cancer, chronic disease, and loss. Yet, she displayed courage through her last breath.

A self-proclaimed “navy brat,” she was born on April 22, 1959, in Willow Grove, and was the daughter of the late Russell and Olga (Berkanski) Brocious. She enjoyed life in California as a child. Eventually, she settled as a permanent resident of Mt. Carmel, residing with her family at 133 South Chestnut Street.

MaryAnn graduated from Mt Carmel Area High School in 1977. Additionally, graduating from Washingtonville School of Practical Nursing in 1991, she worked as an LPN until her medical retirement in 2012.

On November 11, 1978, she married Clement J. Plisiewicz Jr, who survives.

MaryAnn had an adventurous spirit. She loved to ride her motorcycle when she was able. She was always up for a good time and enjoyed travel and vacations, especially to her home in Florida. Lost, hurt, or hungry animals always found their way to her sensing her kind heart and fondness for them all. She selflessly welcomed and helped care for her aging and ill mother, mother-in-law, and father-in-law in her home.

In addition to her parents Russell and Olga Brocious, she was preceded in death by an infant son, Clement Plisiewicz III; brother, Albert Brocious; sister, Elaine Miller; and grandparents, Michael and Ann Berkanski and Daniel and Sarah Brocious. She will be reunited with her beloved cat Doby who she missed dearly.

Survivors in addition to her husband Clement include three daughters, Rebecca Costa and her husband Joseph and grandson, Benjamin of Elysburg, Cecilia Bradley and her husband Matthew of Mt. Carmel, and Alison Plisiewicz and her partner Cypress of Mt. Carmel; beloved furry friends Bella and Poppy; a brother-in-law, Edward Plisiewicz and wife Nina of Danville; a sister-in-law, Barrie Kay Brocious of Shamokin; nieces, nephews, friends, and grandpets.

Our mom has always protected and loved us. We honored her last wishes to care for her at home during her last days on this earth. Despite arriving home gravely ill, MaryAnn’s eyes lit up with joy, and her face was filled with the biggest smile when she saw her grandson, Benjamin. She ensured we all knew how much she loved us, and we will forever love her. The loss of MaryAnn has caused a void and heartache that has no time limit.
