STACK, Marlana J. (Mix)

STACK - Marlana J. (nee Mix)
Of Orchard Park, passed peacefully with her family at her side on Friday, June 29, 2012. Known as "Sunny" to family and friends, she was the beloved wife of Bart J. Stack, whom she was married to for more than 62 years. She was the devoted mother of Bart J. (Mary Shaun) Stack III, Kathleen (Dale) Blanar, Marlana J. (John) Dembik and Colleen (Brian) Lynch; a much-loved grandmother to Adam (Barbara) Blanar, Matthew (Melissa) Blanar, Bart J. Stack IV, Ryan (Courtney) Blanar, Tyler (Aprile) Blanar, Katlin Stack, Zachary Dembik, Meghan Dembik, Chad Blanar and Tara Shaye Lynch; she adored her great-grandchildren Caleb and Mackenzie Blanar and Kyleigh Blanar. She was also loved very much by her younger sister Mary Lou Giglia of Somers Point, NJ. Earlier this month, Sunny served as an honorary survivor for the Relay for Life event held in Elma, NY. She was the past president of the Altar & Rosary Society of St. Andrew's RC Church, Town of Tonawanda, NY. She was avid reader and enjoyed trying the newest restaurants throughout the area. By far her favorite place to be was near the seashore in Ocean City, NJ, where she enjoyed many trips with her family. In the words of her favorite singer, Neil Diamond, "So if they ask you when I'm gone, was it everything she wanted? When she had to travel on, did she know she'd be missed? You can tell them this, she found the life that she was after, filled it up with love and laughter, finally got it right and made it fit." All services are private. Memorial contributions may be made to the charity of your choice in Sunny's name. Arrangements by D. LAWRENCE GINNANE FUNERAL HOME, Kenmore, NY. www.ginnanefuneralhome.com
