JOHNSTOWN — NYANKO – Rosella R. “Our Rosie,” 90, Johnstown, died June 30, 2013, at Arbutus Park Manor. Born Oct. 4, 1922, in Johnstown, daughter of Mike and Caroline (Mikesic) Kalcic. Preceded in death by parents; husband, Joseph “Pappy Joe” Nyanko; a great-grandson; brothers, Daniel, Joseph and John; sisters, Anna Pechar, Mary Sharac, Barbara Cassata and Catherine Oshansky; and son-in-law, Richard Ombres. Survived by children, Rita Ombres, Pittsburgh; Joseph P., married to the former Deborah Reighard, Johnstown; and Mary Jean, wife of Rick Petrore, Johnstown; grandchildren, Joseph D. Nyanko, and wife, Patte; Daniel Nyanko, and wife, Michelle; and Dr. Rachel Ombres; great-grandchildren, Paige, Hannah, Lindsay, Allison, Serena and Lilly Nyanko; and sisters, Dorothy Chance and Caroline Barone. Also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. Rose was a member of the former St. Rochus Catholic Church and a member of Resurrection Parish. She retired from Bestform, where she was a seamstress. Rose was a woman of faith who loved going to church. She was the No. 1 fan of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and loved going to hockey and baseball games and dance and piano recitals. Those who loved her will miss her singing, her cooking, her parties and her wit but now know that she is with her ever-loving husband, “Pappy Joe.” She was a kind and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, mother-in-law, sister, aunt and friend. Friends will be received from 3 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 3, at Francis G. Ozog Funeral Home Inc., 710 Broad St., where vigil for the deceased will be held. Funeral Mass will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, July 5, the Rev. Alan Thomas, officiating. Committal service will be held at Grandview Mausoleum.
