It is with great heartache to announce the passing of Leigh Wendolowski, at the age of 29, on May 30, 2014.
The Guest Book is expired.
Leigh was born to Eugene Wendolowski and the late Cheryl Kosydar Wendolowski on September 13, 1984. She graduated from Valley View High School and was most recently employed as a corrections officer for the state of Pennsylvania.
As a young child, Leigh spent summers at Wrighter Lake water skiing and tubing with her family. During the winter she enjoyed skiing and snowboarding. Leigh spent a lot of time with her grandparents, Mary and Michael Kosydar. There she learned to play billiards, darts and ring toss. As she got older, Leigh played tee-ball and tennis. She also played soccer for a number of years for both St. Mary's and Bishop O'Hara.
Leigh was an artist at heart. She was always drawing and sketching ideas. Her work was inspiring. Some of which became tattoos that were worn proudly. Along with art, Leigh loved nature and being outdoors. She spent time camping, hiking and looking for new trails. Leigh volunteered for the Special Olympics at Elk Mountain annually. She also volunteered to be altar-server at St. Ann's Basilica. She is preceded in death by her grandmothers, Mary Kosydar and Helen Wendolowski; her grandfather, Alfons Wendolowski; her mother, Cheryl; and her niece, Aria.
Surviving are her father, Eugene, Eynon; her brothers, Alex, with wife, Nicole; nephew, Cole; and nieces, Athena and Alexa, Peckville; and Chris, with wife, Amber; nephew, Silas, Eynon; her grandfather, Michael Kosydar, Dickson City; aunts, uncles and cousins.
A private service will be held by the family to celebrate Leigh's life.
