Romaine (Donnelly) Zielenski, age 80, a longtime Taylor resident, passed away Tuesday morning at Allied Hospice in Scranton, after an illness. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 39 years, Walter Zielenski, on May 7, 1998.
Born at St. Joseph’s in Scranton on August 4, 1938, and daughter of the late Thomas and Elizabeth Pepsin Donnelly, Romaine was raised in Taylor and attended Taylor Schools. Before retiring in 2012, she worked for the Riverside School District for 42 years.
She loved bowling and golfing, even in local leagues, and her movie nights with her womens’ club of many friends. A die-hard fan of both the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Yankees, above all else came her family. Her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren, meant the world to her. Loved by many, she will forever be missed.
She is survived by her loving sons, Walter Zielenski and wife Gloria of Baltic, CT and Joseph Zielenski and wife Amy of Raleigh, N.C.; six adored grandchildren, Ashley Zielenski, Jessica Lipe and husband Joseph (Starr), Daniel, Paige, Robert and Andrew Zielenski; and great grandchildren, Gunnar and Hazel Roe Lipe.
A son, Robert F. Zielenski, also preceded her in death on September 10, 1995.
