Mollianne (aka Mary Ann) Pazienza left us peacefully on the morning of Apr 13, 2023 to reunite with her family and lord in heaven, after a long fight with renal failure, at her home in Crestview, FL.
Born on October 5, 1951 to Alice and Cleatus Killgallon in Scranton, PA. Early in life Mollianne chose to become a nurse as her calling she received her LPN from Florida in 1972, her RN from Florida in 1976, and was certified as a Hospice nurse in 2005. She provided care and compassion for over 50 years as a St. Mary’s Hospital nurse, home health nurse, Assisted Living Medical Director, and Hospice nurse.
She met James in West Palm Beach, FL in a Catholic singles group at Saint John Fisher Church in 1978. They went on their first date in January 1979, got engaged in March 1979, and married in October 1979. In 1990 the family moved to Palmdale, CA where she continued her work in nursing, Hospice, and Church organizations at Father Serra Parish. Then in 2013 she moved to Crestview where she retired from active nursing and attended Our Lady of Victory Parish.
Mollianne will be missed by many, as she was incredibly active in and dedicated to her church and communities, always the first to offer a hand, shoulder, ear… or ride where it was needed most. She provided spiritual guidance to others through her work with grief support, cursillo, prolife, marriage encounter, religious education, and the Catholic care center.
She left friends in all the places she touched throughout her life and adventures around the world. She always looked to make the best of everything and enjoy life, with a sense of humor and a big smile. She took the time and effort to know that everyone she met was cared for and loved.
Mollianne is survived by her husband James, her brother Cleatus Killgallon Jr., her sons Michael and Anthony, and her grandchildren Lillian, Donovan, Reece, and Will. Mollianne was preceded in death by Alice Gettings (mother), and Cleatus Killgallon (father).
