Regina L. "Jean" O'Malley passed away Tuesday, March 5, 2013, at her home in Ashford Court, Jacksonville Beach, Fla.
Born on March 13, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Henry and Ann Dzaldowski Leyman.
Jean was an officer at the former People's Bank of Nanticoke for many years, and a member of the former St. Francis Catholic Church, Nanticoke, before moving to Florida. Although Jean loved the Florida weather, the beach and spending time there with her daughter, she never forgot her beloved Nanticoke.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Thomas O'Malley.
Surviving are her daughter, Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathleen O'Malley, Jacksonville Beach, Fla.; sisters, Ann Campton, Palmerton, and Carol Burke, Bowie, Md.

Entombment will be in St. Francis Cemetery. Family and friends may call Wednesday from 9 a.m. until time of service.
In lieu of flowers, the family would suggest contributions to Community Hospice of Northeast Florida, 4266 Sunbeam Road, Jacksonville, FL 32257. The family is eternally grateful to Community Hospice for allowing Jean to remain in her home until she passed away peacefully.
