Nina Sticker Agolia, formerly of Pleasant Mount, passed away on Aug. 1, 2018, after a lengthy illness.
Born to Gaspar and Josephine Giuliano on March 15, 1936, Nina grew up in Tarrytown, N.Y. She graduated from Washington Irving High School in 1953 and attended Fordham University. Nina married Bob Sticker in 1964. They had two children and lived together in Staten Island, N.Y. and Pleasant Mount, Pa. until Bob’s passing in 2011.
Nina is survived by her second husband, Michael Agolia, of Pleasant Mount, whom she married in 2013. She is also survived by a son, Robert; daughter, Marisa, son-in-law, Rick and two most beloved grandchildren, Reimi and Alex.
In addition, Nina leaves behind loving sisters, Grace and Jackie; brother-in-law, Steve; nephews, Peter, Vinny and Greg; niece, Jackie; and daughter-in-law, Reiko.
Nina will be remembered by family and friends alike for her kind, warm, generous and loving heart, her beautiful mind and strong values.
Nina began her administrative career in Manhattan at a young age. She loved the excitement and energy of the “city” but she was equally successful in the “country” where she worked at Pioneer American Bank and Marian Community Hospital. Nina loved to read, Jane Austen and Dorothy Sayers were her favorite. She loved opera and Bob’s art and flowers. She was the best cook and mother and grandmother and she will be missed terribly.
