Anne McNally-Molinaro Obituary

Anne McNally-Molinaro, also known as "Goldie," entered into eternal life surrounded by her family on Thursday, Aug 6.

Anne was born Aug. 12, 1943, in Scranton, Pennsylvania. She was the loving daughter of the late Helen (Farrell) McNally and James McNally. She was employed by Super Market Service for many years before her illness. To know Anne was to love Anne. She was the most compassionate and caring person to everyone she knew. She had a heart of gold, especially toward her family, who will miss her beyond words can express. Regardless if you were born into this family or married into it, she loved everyone equally. Family was family to her and she always wanted the best for everyone, and she would do anything for anyone at the drop of a dime. She loved her casino trips with family, and when she could no longer attend, she would continue to play her slot machine games on her iPad. She loved our holiday family get-togethers and worked tremendously hard to make sure no one was left without a gift. She also enjoyed playing bingo and poker with her family, listening to country music and loved the look of flameless candles that lit up her bedroom. She also loved her bowl of ice cream before bed every night, and her coffee with a Boston cream donut.

Anne was a widow at an extremely young age, which caused her to have to raise four young boys all by herself. She successfully turned them all into great men. Years later she would then remarry where she was blessed with three more children, including a son, who would pass four months after being born. Once again, she was devastated. Soon after she was blessed with two daughters, who would grow up to be her best friends. Our Mother showed us what true strength looked like her whole life. She was a fighter and fought until the very end. When you think of Anne, please honor her with smiles and all the good times she gave you, for her to see anyone sad broke her heart. After her illness her whole family worked together to keep her happy any way they could.

The family would like to send a special thank you to her caregivers, daughter, Lori Fox, and to a great friend who became family, Katie Ogden. Also, a tremendous thank you to her grandson, Patrick Golden and fiancée, Megan, for always being just a phone call away when she needed to be evaluated, which helped avoid many ER trips. The care Anne gave out to everyone was surely returned to her in her time of need, and she will be missed dearly by all the lives she has touched.

Surviving are five children, James Golden and companion, Marlene, Jessup; Patrick Golden and wife, Margaret; Thomas and wife, Liza; Lori Fox; and Nancy Shea and husband, Michael, all of Scranton; 21 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; two brothers, Gerard and Patrick McNally; two sisters, Geraldine Kester and Mary Betty; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by two sons, Richard Leuthe and Michael Golden; two grandchildren, Thomas "T.J." and Michelle; two brothers, Joseph and James McNally; and a sister, Helen Deprimo.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Wednesday at 10 a.m. in St. John Neumann Church, Orchard Street. Interment, Cathedral Cemetery.

Friends may call Tuesday from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Thomas J. Hughes Funeral Home Inc., 1240 St. Ann's St. Memorial contributions may be made to the family.
