Obituary Notices and Memorials


OMALLEY, Maria Cecilia On the morning of March 21, 2010, Maria Cecilia OMalley passed away peacefully. She was born Maria Cecilia Reyes in November 1930, in Santurce, Puerto Rico to Felix and Maria Reyes. She moved to New York in 1957, where she met the love of her life, Thomas OMalley. In 1958, they were married and had twin daughters Ellen and Aurea the following year in Palmdale, Calif. Tom worked for the Palmdale Post Office for 25 years until he retired, while Cecilia had her hands full raising the girls and running a Board and Care Home. Cecilia was an active member of the Women of the Moose for 45 years and was an avid bingo player. Cecilia was loved by many and was always the life of the party. Her zest for life, music, dance, and good nature made it impossible to be in a bad mood while she was around. Due to health reasons, she lived the past three years with her daughter in Thousand Oaks. She will be missed dearly by all that knew her. Cecilia is preceded in death by her husband Tom as well as her mother and father. She is survived by her sisters, Rita and Ruperta, brother Juanito and daughters Ellen and Aurea and their husbands (Bill Corwin and Kevin Jester) as well as seven grandchildren: Kyle, Tom, and Dereck Jester; Christopher and Curtis Arndt; and Curtis and Capri Corwin. In lieu of flowers donations to your favorite charity will be appreciated. A visitation will be held from 4 to 7 p.m., Thursday, March 25, 2010, and funeral service will be held at 12 noon on Friday, March 26, 2010, both at Chapel of the Valley Mortuary, 1755 East Avenue R, Palmdale, Calif. You may email your condolences to Chapel of the Valley Mortuary, Palmdale Directors.
