Aleksandra Renata Wolak, 46, of Exton, PA, passed away December 23, 2022. Born December 9, 1976 in Mielec, Poland, she was a daughter of Stanislaw and Maria (nee Maj) Wolak. Known as Ola, she was the loving partner of David Moore since 2015. Their daughter, Valentina Inga Wolak-Moore, was the light of her life. She was sister to Agata Pietrykowska, Paulina Bal, Sabina Wolak, and Piotr Wolak.
Ola attended college in Krakow Poland and obtained a Master's degree. However, she chose to live an athlete’s life. Having an athletic youth, inspired by her dad, she started playing professional volleyball in Europe. She came to the USA to continue playing professionally, and was a very successful beach volleyball player. Her sport allowed her to travel the world and see different cultures, which was a great passion for her. Her travel contributed to her most focused interest, which was health and wellness. She took aspects from many cultures and created her own personal system of health. A product of this was her many certifications for health and exercise teaching.
Her life's work became not just beating her disease, but curing it for all who would come after her. She was an inspiration and will be missed as an athlete, true friend, sister, daughter, life partner, and very much, as a mother.
Relatives and friends are invited to her Visitation 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, Wednesday, January 4, 2023 at The Donohue Funeral Home, 1627 West Chester Pike, West Chester, PA 19382, followed by her Memorial Service at 12:00 PM. Interment following, at Birmingham Lafayette Cemetery.
