Mary Jane Albanese, 86, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Thursday, April 23, 2020. She was born May 14, 1933 in Columbus, Ohio to the late Eugene and Mary Pelino.
She had a love for music and shared the gift of her beautiful voice with so many, as she sang with St. James The Less and St. Mathias choirs.
