Maryanne (Kreitzburg) Blackham

Age 58, of Murrysville, passed away unexpectedly Friday, January 14, 2022. Beloved daughter of Patricia and the late Theodore F. Waldo; wife of Raymond John Blackham and the late Jim Kreitzburg; mother of Amber, James and Danny (Lydia) Kreitzburg; sister of Joeseph (Jill) Waldo, Lisa (John) Swab, Daniel (Ellen) Waldo, and Jason (Carla) Waldo; daughter in-law of Raymond T. and Patricia A Blackham, and Peggy (Sprague) Kreitzburg; also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

A woman who made friends everywhere she went.  She strived to make the people around her feel loved.  After 20 plus years in HR she managed to get her CDL for driving school buses, which had always been her childhood dream.  She was blessed with a second chance at marriage with Ray, something they were both beyond grateful for.

She brought a smile to the faces of many through her creative spirit and helping hand.  Her love of arts and crafts began at a young age when she helped with the Puppet Ministry. From Sunday school to family gatherings she always had a creative project to share.  She loved scrapbooking, dining out, and the theatre. She was a ray of sunshine that will be missed by all who knew her.
