Florence Nadolny (nee Paluszek), 95, passed away on December 29, 2021, in Dublin, Ohio. Florence spent her career in accounting and worked for over twenty years as a payroll master at St. John’s Queens Hospital. She raised her family in Middle Village, Queens, New York from 1958 to 1998 when she and her husband moved to Dublin, Ohio to be close to her daughter and her family. While in Middle Village, she held many leadership and fundraising positions in local civic groups. She maintained an active role in her home church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Florence is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Alexander Nadolny, to which she was married for 70 years; brother Raymond Paluszek, three sisters-in-law Caroline and Florence Paluszek and Teresa Nadolny, and one brother-in-law Edmund Nadolny.
She will be greatly missed by her children, Kenneth (Judy) Nadolny of Houston, Texas, and Jill (David) Kilanowski of Dublin, Ohio; grandchildren, Andrew Nadolny, Kevin (Tomoko) Nadolny, Philip [aka Fr. Humbert, OP] Kilanowski, Amanda (Jay) Compton, Peter (Victoria) Kilanowski, and Mark Kilanowski. Florence and her husband were blessed with six great-grandchildren: Ken and Miho Nadolny, Piper, Lexie, and Rhett Compton, and Francesca Kilanowski. She is also survived by her brother, Henry Paluszek, of Hobe Sound, Florida, a sister-in-law Anita Olen, and by many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Florence was passionate about her family and her Polish heritage and its traditions. She enjoyed feeding the deer and birds that visited her garden, Polish pottery, giraffes, crossword puzzles, baking, sewing and genealogy. She was proficient on the computer and enjoyed searching the Internet for news, sales, and additions to her pottery collection. She and Alex enjoyed traveling to see family, Poland, and Europe. She loved being part of her grandchildren’s lives attending religious and graduation ceremonies, athletic events, marching band competitions, and seeing the next generation grow.
