Mary Ellen Regalsky, 83, of Martins Ferry, Ohio and most recently of central Ohio quietly left this earthly home to join the two loves of her life: Jesus and her husband, Bob, on Saturday morning, October 9, 2021 at Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber in Columbus, embraced by family and friends.

She was born June 16, 1938 in Wheeling, West Virginia to the late George and Sarah (Smith) Thalman. She married her forever love, John Robert “Bob” Regalsky on July 7, 1962 in Wheeling, West Virginia after his discharge from the United States Army. Sadly, Bob passed away recently by Mary’s side on June 26, 2021, just shy of 59 years of marriage.

A resident of Martins Ferry for over 50 years, Mary Ellen was a devoted and faithful member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Martins Ferry and more recently, St. Mary Catholic Church in Delaware when moving to Delaware in 2019. She enjoyed sharing her earthly life with Bob, spending time with her kids and grandkids, investing relationally into her numerous friends, being a wonderful homemaker, making others laugh, and most importantly, being a warm hearted, solid rock and an encourager to anyone who crossed her path.

Left to cherish her memory are her daughters, Teresa (Joe) Podolski of Worthington, Renee Ciardelli of Columbus and Denise (Paul) Johnson of Canal Winchester; son, John (Jenny) Regalsky of Delaware; 11 grandchildren, John David, Evelyn, Claudia, Caroline, Catherine, Christopher (Cora), Andrew, Valentino, Lindsay, Gabrielle, and Lukas.

The family will receive friends on Thursday, October 14, 2021 from 11:00 am – 12:00 Noon at the Snyder- Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Drive at W. William Street, Delaware, where services celebrating Mary Ellen’s life will follow at 12:00 Noon with Pastor Dean Fulks of Lifepoint Church officiating. The services will be live-streamed and can be viewed at www. Facebook.com/ DelawareSFH/

Burial will be at a later date in the Dayton National Cemetery next to her loving and devoted husband, Bob.

Contributions in Mary Ellen’s memory may be made to Capital City Hospice, 2800 Corporate Exchange Dr. #170, Columbus, OH 43231.
