A longtime resident of Sharpsville, she was born in Struthers, OH November 2nd, 1924 to Mary Ann (Murphy) and Dennis Malone. Phyllis was a graduate of Struthers High School. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and aunt. In 1943 she married her husband Martin “Tino” Lally. Martin, who was an avid golfer, passed away in 1982. Following the death of her husband, Phyllis and her children began the Martin Lally Memorial Golf Outing in his memory which started in 1983.
Phyllis served as the Sharpsville Borough Secretary from 1971 to 1985. She continued her love of golf, working at Birchwood Golf Course following her retirement. In additions to being an avid golfer, Phyllis was also an avid bowler. She always welcomed many to her home on Christmas Eve to enjoy the annual Sharpsville tradition of Santa Claus visiting each home.

The family would like to thank the staff at Garden Way Place for their care and compassion.
Due to the current pandemic, funeral services will be held privately.
Burial will take place in St. Mary’s Cemetery next to her husband.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial contributions be sent to Buhl Park, St. Bartholomew Church, or Three Rivers Hospice.
Arrangements entrusted to the Donaldson-Mohney Funeral Home & Cremation Service 124 W. Main St. Sharpsville, PA.

We are so sad to hear of the passing of one of my favorite golfing partners!! Phyllis and I would do our best to be on the same cart whenever we played with our league at Birchwood. I still remember all the funny stories we would share while I tried so hard to be half as good a golfer as she was. I hope that the many wonderful stories will help to ease the pain you all must be feeling at this time. Dave and I send much love to the entire Lally family for their loss.

My deepest sympathy to the entire Lally Family on the passing of Phyllis. I first knew her when I was very young and my Aunt Ann worked with her at the Borough. Later in life I was so lucky to be in the “Wiggle” Thursday Night Golf League with her at Birchwood, she was an amazing lady. Prayers to you all.
