A Letter Honoring Phyllis O'Malley from Kevin Berg the Superintendent of Schools for Westonka District 277
My Mother, Phyllis O'Malley, and the namesake for the Thomas and Phyllis O'Malley Scholarship passed away on July 15th, 2014.
She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She cared deeply about education and the scholarship honors her years of contribution to Westonka Public Schools.
Please pray for her soul and may God bless her.
You can see a copy of her obituary and eulogy here.

Tomorrow marks the end of the Mayan calendar. What shall happen? We will be one day closer to Christmas and I will be one day further behind in my quest for gifts.
From all of us in the O'Malley Family, we wish you a very blessed Christmas and an amazing new year.
Each year, the O'Malley Foundation selects a deserving college bound, senior from Mound-Westonka High School to receive the Thomas and Phyllis O'Malley Sholarship. We would like to congratulate Connor Hanson as the 2012 winner!
This last December, we celebrated my Mother's 90th birthday with a party in Chicago. The event reminded of why we founded the O'Malley Foundation. My Mother, Phyllis O'Malley, dedicated a big part of her life to supporting education in our community (Mound, MN), offering her smarts to worthy causes and helping those in need. Her inspiration was the genesis of the O'Malley Foundation and I felt compelled to do a better job of documenting the good work that has been done in her honor. As such, we've created this website to create greater awareness.
I hope that all the recipients of the Thomas and Phyllis O'Malley Scholarship are either doing well in college or onto successful careers. Time passes so fast. Just seems like yesterday that we awarded our first scholarship to Michael Younes. I extend my congratulations to all of you and wish you and your families the very best. I'm sure your life achievements would all make my mother very proud.
