Olga Szpylczyn Obituary
Szpylczyn, Olga

age 63, of Chenango Bridge, NY passed away on March 23rd, 2011. She was predeceased by her parents, Michael and Anastasia (Lytwyn), formerly of Johnson City, NY. Olga is survived by her brother and his wife, Mark and Fran Rossi Szpylczyn, and her beloved niece, Erica Lynn Szplyczyn, all of Clifton Park, NY. Olga's parents had emigrated from Ukraine to Germany in the 30's and were interred in a work camp, where they met. Olga was born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1947. The family came to the United States in 1951, entering via Ellis Island and settled in Binghamton, NY. Fulfilling the American dream her parents lived for, Olga earned her MS in Education from SUNY Geneseo in 1969 and then a MS in Library Science from Shippensburg College in Pennsylvania. After a rewarding career as a school librarian in the Binghamton School District, Olga retired in 2005. She was active in Eastern Broome Branch of the NY State Retired Teachers Association. Extremely proud of her Ukrainian heritage, she was delighted to travel there in 1995. Olga was very dedicated to her family and took care of her parents and was devoted to her brother and his family. Olga loved traveling and was able to see many places around the U.S. and the world and was hoping to do more of that in her retirement. She had many friends and was well loved by all who knew her. During her illness many friends were helpful, but none more than Doris Roach and Bea Tamkins. The Spzylczyn family wishes to extend their gratitude to the staff at Wilson UHC, especially Ellen Legos-Williams and the entire team on South Tower 4, Dr. Christian Tvetenstrand, and Dr. Roy Gill. In lieu of flowers, Olga asked that donations be made to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund ( A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday April 2nd, at 11:00am at the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Glenville, NY.
