Ann Marie Holmes Malloy

Ann Marie (Holmes) Malloy, 90 years, of Clarks Summit, formerly of Conklin, N.Y., died Friday in Clarks Summit Senior Living. Her companion of 28 years, Earl Bishop of Jermyn, was her high school sweetheart. She will be remembered as a friend forever and for years of happiness.

Born Jan. 27, 1932, in Archbald, she was the daughter of the late James A. and Blanche E. (O'Horo) Holmes Sr. A 1949 graduate of Archbald High School, where she was salutatorian and according to Earl, the best looking. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Marywood University and earned her master's degree from New York University at Cortland. A professional educator, she was a math teacher for the Susquehanna Valley School District, Conklin, N.Y., having retired in 1995.

She was a faithful member of St. Andrew Church, Binghamton, where she sang in the choir and served on the parish council. She had a beautiful voice and sang at weddings and funerals.

A devoted mother, Ann Marie would play the piano for her children sing for all to enjoy in the family living room. A converted Yankees fan, she enjoyed crossword puzzles, singing and classical music. She instilled values in her children and her cherished memories will live on forever. The family wishes to extend sincere appreciation to John Holmes, nephew who provided special care and the staff at Clarks Summit Senior Living.

wonderful woman, her influences will carry on in the lives she taught and the lives she touched.

Ann Marie had such an impact on me! I had the pleasure working with her at SVJH for several years back on the ‘80s. In February 1988, she gave me a Mothers Manuel when I was expecting my first child. I have used it throughout my life! It is rather torn and unblinded but I still keep it in my desk drawer and refer to it, 34 years later! Golly, I just loved that lady! Look at the legacy she left.

Ann was a teacher at our Cedarhurst school for many years. It was a pleasure to be her principal for most those years. She was always very supportive to her students and staff. A gentle soul to all who knew her and took great pride in her job. She was never late for school even though she lived an hour away!! I will miss and say a prayer for Ann R I P. Sincerely, Bob Callahan

I taught with Ann Marie for many years at SV. She was a beautiful person, inside and out, and so were all her kids! The world is never ready to lose such a one. My sincere condolences to you all.

She was my 7th grade math teacher at SV and I also stood next to her as an alto in St. Andrew's choir for many years. There were many choir practices where we would get the giggles and couldn't stop, much to the displeasure of our beloved choir director, Kaye Harding. We had great times up there in the choir loft. She was a dear, sweet woman and I'm saddened at here passing but am smiling from the memories...and will cherish them. My deepest condolences to Mrs. Malloy's family. She was a wonderful woman.
