Olga M. Jaworski, 87,

O lga M. Jaworski, 87, of Whitehall, passed away on Monday, May 31, 2010, at the Indian River Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Granville following a brief illness.
Olga was born on July 21, 1922, in New York, the daughter of Joseph and Tekla “Tessie” (Reinick) Walewicz.
She attended school in New York and attended a business college in New York. She and her family resided in South Farmingdale, Long Island. She was employed as an assistant patient account manager for Roosevelt Hospital in New York City for more than 20 years. She also served as a volunteer at the Roosevelt Hospital for many years. There she worked with special needs babies.
In 1972, she and her family moved to Rutland, Vt., and purchased the Green Mount Hotel in Rutland. After her husband’s illness, they sold the business and moved to Whitehall and opened an antique business. They enjoyed traveling to many auctions and sales, purchasing antiques for their business. Following Edward’s death in 1980, she continued to operate the family business until her retirement. Olga also cared for her parents at home until their death. She was a wonderful example of compassion, responsibility and love.
Olga was known to be a humanitarian toward animals and people in Whitehall. She taught Catechism at the church for many years, known to her students as “Mrs. J”. She was a very devout Catholic. She loved the Lord and served Him with all her heart and soul. She was also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Whitehall and the Woman’s Auxiliary of the American Legion Post 83 of Whitehall.
Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her husband, Edward L. Jaworski, and her brother, Nicholas Walewicz.
Survivors include her daughter, Diane Raymer of Grapevine, Texas; her six grandchildren, Christopher Cioffi of Provo, Utah, Danielle Cioffi, Nicole Cioffi, Pamela Cioffi, Rebecca Cioffi and Timothy Cioffi, all of Texas. She is also survived by two very special friends, Mary Fenton and Patricia Norton, both of Whitehall.
A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 11, at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church, Skene Street, Whitehall, with the Rev. Michael Flannery, pastor, officiating. Burial will follow the Mass in Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Whitehall.
Friends may call from 10 a.m. until the time of the services at the church.
The family suggests that memorial contributions may be made in her name to the local Humane Society or ASPCA.
God bless and thank-you to all who helped and cared for my mother in her time of need and during her brief stay at the Indian River Nursing Home. She is greatly missed.
Arrangements are under the direction of the Michael G. Angiolillo Funeral Home, 210 Broadway, Whitehall.
