---- — Olga C. Malinowski 

JORDANVILLE — Olga C. Malinowski, 82, of State Highway 167, passed away peacefully on Friday, Sept. 27, 2013, in her home.

Olga was born on March 12, 1931, in Little Falls, daughter of the late Paul Checko and Anna Jakubec. She was raised in Jordanville and was a graduate of Van Hornesville Central School. 

On April 7, 1951, she was united in marriage with John J. Malinowski, a blessed union of nearly 60 years until his passing on Jan. 5, 2011.

Mrs. Malinowski worked for many years as a seamstress. She retired in 1992 from the ShurKatch Corporation in Richfield Springs. Olga enjoyed being at home and her favorite times were when the family was all together laughing and remembering stories from days gone by. She loved to knit and walk around her house taking care of her flowers. She enjoyed going for shopping trips or just for a ride to get out of the house for a few hours. Everyone who will remember Olga will remember her to have been an excellent cook, always being able to whip up something last minute and having it come out perfectly. She also enjoyed the times when her granddaughter, Holly was with her and they would sit and watch TV or she’d watch her play outside. She had a great sense of humor and her kids will always remember her as someone who they could joke around with and get her to laugh at just about anything. 

She is survived by three sons, James M. Malinowski and his wife, Lori of Richfield Springs, Richard J. Malinowski of Rome, Daniel J. Malinowski and his wife, Melanie of Mohawk, a daughter, Christine Young and her husband, Christopher of Jordanville; two granddaughters, Holly Malinowski of Richfield Springs and Camille Malinowski of Rome; as well as several cousins.

Besides her husband, John, she was preceded in death by a son, John Malinowski Jr., in 1969 a stepbrother, Paul Zeman and four sisters, Mildred Chauffers, Elizabeth Gilette, Katherine Whaler and Pauline Checko.

Calling hours for Mrs. Malinowski will be from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4, at J. Seaton McGrath Funeral Home, 40 West James St., Richfield Springs. A private funeral service will be held later at the convenience of the family.
