Ann Malia Malloy Cardenas, 76, died surrounded by her loving family on Thursday, December 29, 2022.
Ann was born in Uniontown, PA to Loretta (Letty) McDade and John Malloy III on March 8, 1946 a birthday she shared with her brother who was four years older. She grew up in Brownsville, PA and graduated from Brashear Sr. High School. Ann received a degree from West Penn Hospital School of Nursing. It was while working as an RN at West Penn that she met her husband, Dr. Floyd Cardenas. Their mutual love of dancing brought them together and brought them much joy over their nearly 50-year marriage.
Ann loved to travel especially cruises, New Year’s Eve celebrations, and shenanigans with her many lifelong and long-time friends. She enjoyed getting dressed up for a night out or a lunch with her birthday girls. Ann was a talented amateur artist and fiercely devoted to her two grandchildren.
