Obituary of Sylvia O'Malley

Sylvia R. O'Malley, 86, of Nanticoke passed Friday, June 19, 2020 at Kingston Healthcare Center. Born January 14, 1934 in Nanticoke, she was the daughter of the late Sebastian and Mary (Olshefski) Modla. She was married to Edward Anthony O'Malley until his death on November 3, 2018. Up until her retirement, she assisted Edward with administrative duties for their numerous family businesses, including Tri-City Floor Cleaning Company. Sylvia was a member of St. Faustina Kowalska Parish, Nanticoke and, prior to the consolidation of the parishes, St. Joseph's Slovak Church where she belonged to the Christian Women’s Society. She was also an accomplished baker and cook. Her favorite times of the year were during the many occasions that the family could join together and enjoy the delicacies she created. Sylvia also enjoyed traveling with the family. Be it a day trip to New York City to see a theatrical production or a beach getaway to a Southern or Caribbean destination, she enjoyed getting away with the family. But above all, Sylvia valued the time spent with her grandchildren. She often relished memories she had of taking the kids for walks or bike rides around the neighborhood. She was preceded in death by her brother, Joseph Modla and son-in-law, Stephen Bolinski. Surviving are her children, Kathy Bolinski of South Abington Township and William O'Malley and his wife, Jean of Dallas; grandson, William Patrick O'Malley; granddaughter, Colleen Erin O'Malley as well as several nieces and nephews. A Mass of Christian burial will be held 11:30 am on Wednesday at St. Faustina Kowalska Parish, 520 S. Hanover Street, Nanticoke, PA with the Rev. James R. Nash, her pastor, as celebrant. Interment will follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Carverton. There will be no public viewing or calling hours. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution in Sylvia's memory to St. Faustina Kowalska Parish.
