Florence Ann Rager (Molesky)


Florence(Flo) Ann Rager (Molesky)of Nanty-Glo PA, most recently Sarver, PA, passed on peacefully to the Lord on September 5, 2018 while resting in Hospice Care in Cabot, PA. She was 76. Florence was born on January 5, 1942 in Johnstown Pennsylvania to her parents, Frank and Elizabeth Molesky. She graduated from Nanty Glo - Vintondale Joint High School in 1959 and attended college at Georgetown University. She married Harvey M. Rager in 1962 and had two children, Harvey M. Rager, Jr. and Cynthia (Cindy) Michelini (Rager). She spent most of her life as a legal secretary, starting at the Aviation Center in Washington, D.C., and at various legal firms in Johnstown, P.A. She served as a caregiver to various family members including her parents, husband, and grandchildren, all of whom were blessed to have her care and love. She also held various part-time positions in the communities where she lived. She was a life-long practicing Catholic and was most recently a member of St. Mary Mother of God Church in Freeport, PA. Florence had a loving and compassionate personality. She was a great listener and enjoyed reading books, painting, completing crosswords from the paper, watching national news stations...especially enjoying any topic surrounding politics. She was an activist, always interested in positive change for our country. She was a lover of great movies, theater, and cups of coffee and tea shared with those she loved. Florence spent her life giving herself to others, and while others saw this as a sacrifice, she saw it as the truest expression of herself. She was love to all who knew her, and those who got close enough to see it are truly blessed.
Florence Rager is survived by her children, Harvey M. Rager Jr. and Cynthia Michelini; Son-In-Law, Chad Michelini; four grandchildren, Michael Rager, Emma Michelini, Evan Michelini, and Azelyn Michelini; two brothers, Frank Molesky and Dennis Molesky; Sister-In-Law Pam Molesky; and various family members and close friends. She is preceded in death by her husband, Harvey M. Rager, and her parents, Frank and Elizabeth Molesky. A Catholic Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, September 15th at 10:00 am at St. Mary Mother of God Church in Freeport, PA. She will be laid to rest at the St. Benedict's Cemetery in Carrolltown, PA at a later date. Condolences to her home: 227 Edgewood Drive, Sarver PA 16055.
