Paulette Maria Pambianco, 58, of Crow Street, Plains Twp., passed away through the gates of eternity on Tuesday, April 11, 2017, in University of Pennsylvania Medical Center due to complications arising from a stem-cell transplant. Born Nov. 17, 1958, one of five siblings, Paulette Maria Sidloski was the youngest daughter of the late Paul and Genevieve Zyskowski Sidloski. Paulette grew up in the Heights section of Wilkes-Barre and attended Marymount Elementary School and graduated from Bishop Hoban High School in 1976. She was employed by Planters Peanuts, which eventually became Kraft Foods for over 25 years and recently at Schiel's Family Market. Paulette befriended many people at her workplace, feeling many to be extended family. Always bright eyed with a big smile Paulette never uttered an unkind word. She preferred to offer the benefit of doubt or a second chance. Paulette felt her grandchildren filled a place in her heart she didn't know was empty, adoring their innocence, cherished every moment. If you were blessed enough to have her call you a friend, you had a friend till the end. She could stay on a beach from sunrise to sunset. Born a baker's daughter, she had a passion for baking and could have been a professional herself. She loved planting her flowers, often saying if anything should happen to me please don't write in my obituary "In lieu of flowers." I Love Flowers. Paulette was preceded in death by brother, Gregory and son, Nicholas. Surviving are her husband of 30 years, Raymond; son, Gerald at home; granddaughters, Audrey Ford, New Smyrna Beach, Fla.; Ambreya Pambianco, Pittston; her puppy, "Buddy"; brother Tom Sidloski and wife, Donna, Wilkes-Barre; Myron Sidloski and life partner, Barbara, Shavertown; sister, Maria Grispino; Columbus, Ohio; sister-in-law, "Cis" Sidloski, Wilkes-Barre; Pop and Nona Gerald and Janet Pambianco, Plains Twp.; brother-in-law, Matt Pambianco and wife, Victoria, Swoyersville; sister-in-law, Maria White and husband, Gerald, Hunlocks Creek; many, many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins.
