Marlene M. Sulkowski

  • On April 29, 2023

Marlene M. Sulkowski, 82, of Robinson Township, PA, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Saturday, April 29, 2023. Beloved wife of 56 years to the late Ronald R. Sulkowski. Born on November 30, 1940 in Tyrone, PA, she is the daughter of the late Arthur and Magdalene Catherman. Loving mother of Stacey (Joseph) Maletic, Heidi (Al) Miller and Christopher (Sonnie) Sulkowski. Grandmother of Shelby (Ben) Rearick, Jacob Sulkowski, AJ Miller, Tiffany Miller and the late Connor Miller. Also survived by her brother-in-law, Bernard (Vicki) Sulkowski, along with several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her late brother-in-law Regis (Margaret) Sulkowski, Regis Sulkowski Jr., as well as her sister-in-law, Christine Sulkowski.

You would never find Marlene without a book in hand, and she made the best cold mint tea during each summer. She had a passion for being a floral designer for more than 40 years and was able to assist with growing each of her daughter’s businesses in the floral industry as well. Canning, farm life and gardening were huge deals of excitement in her life during the early years as she continued to grow her family. She took great joy in being a grandmother to 4 and participating in their activities during and after school. Marley, her Shitzu, was a huge part of each day during the last several decades and kept her constant company. She was involved with the Ladies Auxiliary for Monroeville #1 Fire Dept. along with the South Buffalo Volunteer 220 where her husband served for several years. Her son and grandson now take the same path as Ronald at the South Buffalo Volunteer 220.

As Marlene wished to keep things simple with her family, no memorial service will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Marlene’s name may be made to ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) as she wanted to give these animals a helping hand at a better life. Arrangements were entrusted to Pittsburgh Cremation & Funeral Care, Robinson Township, PA. Please view and sign the family’s online guestbook at www.PittsburghCremation.com.

I lived with Marlene at Cedar Ridge. Didn't know her well but have many conversations with her. She was friendly to everyone and will be missed. Rest in peace.

Heidi, I will miss your Mom. We sat at the same Bingo, here at Cedar Ridge, for some time. She was a delight to be around. She always had her beloved, Marley with her. How she loved that little dog. She was feisty. I loved that about her. I know your heart must be broken. You were a loving, caring daughter. You always made time for her. Know that my prayers are with you and your family. Knowing that she is in God's loving arms will give you comfort, at this sad time. Barb Bachowski Apt 422.

I met Marlene under unfortunate circumstances in the hospital. Even while injured she was so kind and loving. She holds a special place in my heart as she connected me to Heidi who had such a big part in my wedding. Heidi, Phil and I are thinking of you in this difficult time.
