Obituary for Pauline L. "Polly" Opiloski

Pauline (Polly) Opiloski, age 91, passed away on August 19, 2020, at the Reading Hospital after a short
stay in hospice care. Her husband of sixty-seven years, Eugene Opiloski, predeceased her in 2016 and in
2018 she decided to move from their home of 60 years in Lincoln Park to the Highlands at Wyomissing,
where she resided until her death.

“Aunt Polly” (as she was known to many) was a lovely caregiver to not only her husband and family but
to many friends. She enjoyed cooking, bringing the family together to celebrate holidays and other
events, and doing crafts. She continued her love of crafts and social activities while at the Highlands.
Polly worked most of her life and genuinely enjoyed everything she did. She eventually (and reluctantly)
retired from Lucent Technologies and she and her husband did some traveling to visit family and friends,
including some travel abroad. Ant Polly loved collecting small items of beauty or interest from her
travels and from her shopping sprees. She always remembered a birthday or anniversary with a card
and a note that brought a smile to your face. Though she had no children of her own, she enjoyed
watching others’ children grow and prosper and was always proud of their accomplishments. She also
enjoyed helping those in need either due to illness or advancing age, and was a volunteer at Berks Heim
for many years.

She is survived by a sister, Estelle M. Todaro (Wyomissing), two nieces – Susan L. Macey (Denver, CO)
and Anne Strouse (Grand Rapids, MI) three nephews – Thomas, David and James Todaro (Ohio), two
cousins, Sandy Stephan (Charlie) and Terry Melley, both of Reading, a number of great nieces and
nephews and other loving friends.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Tuesday, August 25, 2020, at 9:30 am at St. John's Roman Catholic Church, 42 Kerrick Rd, Shillington, PA 19607 with burial to follow at Gethsemane Cemetery. Condolences may be expressed at In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her honor to a charity of your choice.

Polly was in my 2nd & 3rd shift Future Telephone Pioneers group at AT&T Technologies. She was a lovely person who was fun loving and good at breaking the ice at our meetings. Always someone I could depend on.
My condolences to her family and friends.
Rest in peace my friend!

What a kind and gentle soul. She was a friend of our mother; having worked together at AT&T. They volunteered together, were part of a breakfast club that met regularly on Fridays, met for lunches and long chats on the phone. Polly became a friend to all of us; that was her personality. If you are thinking of her you are smiling and I can’t think of a better legacy. May she Rest In Peace. Hoping the girls are having breakfast together in heaven this Friday.

Polly and my mother were good friends, having worked together at Western Electric/AT&T. They kept in touch long after they both retired, sharing breakfasts, shopping trips, and lots of telephone calls back and forth. As my mother became ill, Polly called regularly to support her, to make her laugh and to be a source of comfort, not only to my mother, but to our family as well. She would call to make sure that we were taking care of ourselves as well. She was a very special lady with a heart of gold. May she rest in peace.
