Louise Malinoski Obituary
Malinoski, Louise
Malinoski, Louise Nancy (Cox) 90, of Phoenix, AZ, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on January 20, 2016. Louise was born December 13, 1925 in the small town of Homerville, Georgia to Obe and Lou Mae Cox. Her life's journey took her to Erie, PA, where she was to meet her husband of 58 years, Edward Malinoski, while roller skating. Louise worked as a welder on battleships during World War II, as a secretary at G.E., a homemaker, and retired from Cole's Directory. Edward and Louise were married in 1951 and lived in the town of North West, PA until July, 1959 at which time they moved to Phoenix, AZ. This move was made to escape the snow of PA, and upon arriving in Arizona in July, was quite a climate change. Louise was a phenomenal cook and loved to have family and friends at her table. She was a very loving, giving, and kind person. She put others needs before her own and helped many people throughout her life. She was active in her children's lives as a Cub Scout and Boy Scout leader, Brownie and Girl Scout leader, confidante, chauffer, and was always there for them during their many exploits. Her hobbies included reading, crossword puzzles, watching basketball, and feeding the birds. If visiting Louise in the afternoon, you could expect her back patio and yard to be filled with all kinds of birds. Her dining room table looked out onto these areas and was where she most enjoyed spending her time. Louise was a very loving, supportive and caring wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Louise is pre-deceased by her husband, Edward Malinoski, and parents, Obe and Lou Mae Cox. She is survived by her brother Alvin (Melba) Cox of Homerville, Georgia; her children; sons, Mark, David, and Paul; daughter, LouAnn (Tim) DeHart; six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. A viewing will be held on Friday, January 29, 2016 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Phoenix Memorial Park and Mortuary, 200 E. Beardsley Rd., Phoenix, AZ. Services will be held on Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at Phoenix Memorial Park and Mortuary with graveside services to follow. We would like to thank for their support during this difficult time. Donations may be made to in Louise's name. "Mom, thank you for all the love you gave us, the patience you showed us, and the things you taught us. You will be forever in our hearts. We Love You!"
