Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Constance “Connie” (Malinowski) Piccotti, a lifelong Scranton resident, passed away Sunday at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, after an illness. She was 88 years young.
On May 28, 2012, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 57 years, Frank “Fra” P. Piccotti.
Born on December 17, 1934 and daughter of the late Stanley and Victoria (Sobocinski) Malinowski, Connie was a graduate of the former South Scranton Catholic High School. An amazingly supportive mother with a tireless work ethic, while raising her three children she continued to work. She worked in the cafeteria at the former Bishop Klonowski High School before being employed by Community Medical Center in its nursing residence. She would ultimately retire from the American Cancer Society.
She had briefly served as a sports columnist for the Polish National Catholic Journal, which led into her becoming a true sports fan. She especially loved her Philadelphia Phillies and, also a college basketball fanatic, she rooted for both the Syracuse Orangemen and Duke Blue Devils. The Scranton Times just lost one of its best customers as she was a loyal subscriber to the daily newspaper, never passing up a good daily crossword puzzle. Also, some of her fondest memories came while on trips to Atlantic City, N.J. and Cocoa Beach, Florida, with Frank by her side.
Connie always put the needs of loved ones above her own, constantly worried for their well-being. Family was certainly always her top priority. She will be dearly missed by her loved ones.
A faithful Roman Catholic, she was a longtime member of St. Paul of the Cross Parish in South Scranton.
She is survived by her loving family, including her children, Paul Piccotti and wife Linda of Barnegat, New Jersey, Frank Piccotti and wife Michele of Taylor and Lisa Jadick and husband David of Fell Twp.; five grandchildren, April Vinciarelli, Mary Lynn Piccotti, Tyler Piccotti, Paul Alan Piccotti and Mandy Jadick; three great grandchildren, Neno Capozucca, Endir Piccotti and Baldo Vinciarelli; her sister, Carol Shorten of Scranton; and many nieces and nephews.
Her brother, David Malinowski, also preceded her in death.
Her family would like to acknowledge and thank the entire staffs of both the Scranton Health Care Center as well as Geisinger C.M.C.’s hospital, especially the staffs of its I.C.U. and surgical units, for their collective care and compassion throughout Connie’s illness.
Funeral services are scheduled to begin on Thursday at 9:15 AM from the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, with a 10:00 AM Mass of Christian Burial at Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary Church, 1217 Prospect Ave., Scranton, to be celebrated by Rev. John Kuhar, Pastor. Burial will follow at Sacred Heart Cemetery.
Family and friends may pay their respects on Wednesday between 4-6:00 PM at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Connie’s name to the American Cancer Society c/o American Cancer Society c/o P.O. Box 6704, Hagerstown, MD 21741.
