Marie Helen Baczynski

September 2, 1944 — August 22, 2022

Marie Helen Baczynski, 77, formerly of Kingston, passed away on Monday evening, August 22nd, 2022, at home in Gleason, TN, with her daughter by her side following a courageous 4 year battle with cancer.

Born in Wilkes-Barre, on September 2nd, 1944, she was the daughter of the late Carl and Helen Compton.

Marie was a 1962 graduate of Coughlin High School and was most recently employed at the Salvation Army as a truck dispatcher before retiring. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death in 2018 by Chester, her husband of 55 years, her beloved Chihuahua Cocoa, and her granddog Faith.

The family would like to thank AseraCare of McKenzie for their hospice services and Dr. Chura and Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia whose expertise gave her 4 more years to enjoy with her daughter.

During those last 4 years she went on many adventures with her daughter. She got to visit the Grand Ole Opry, Graceland, visited wineries, and went geocaching with her daughter all over creation, with varying levels of enthusiasm. She enjoyed watching the Phillies, Yankees, and Eagles, even though they were not always as good as hoped.

Surviving is her daughter, Dr. Kathleen Baczynski, Gleason, TN.
