Madeline “Midge” (Dalton) Malone

February 07, 1963 - February 02, 2021

Visitation: Friday 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. at Devlin Funeral Home Inc. Ross Twp.

Service: Mass of Christian Burial in Our Lady of Mt. Carmel , St. Teresa of Avila church Saturday 11:00 a.m. Everyone please meet at Church.


After exhibiting amazing grace and courage, Midge Malone, 57, of West View, lost her battle to colon cancer on February 2, 2021. Her grit and resilience during the last twenty months were an inspiration to family, friends, and caregivers. Midge was preceded in death by her father, Arthur J. Dalton, and sister, Constance Maggio. She is survived by her loving husband, Paul, and her four children: Margo, Shannon, Mary (Ethan), and Patrick. She is also survived by her mother,Constance, and siblings Ellen Milantoni, Arthur (Ginger) Dalton, Elizabeth Dalton, Susan (Jim)Dickinson, Kathryn (Tim) Dutcher, Christopher (Lisa) Dalton, and Paul (Gabrielle) Dalton. She leaves behind many beloved nieces and nephews.
Midge moved with her family to Pittsburgh in 1975 and attended St. Bede Catholic School. She graduated from Sacred Heart High School in 1981 and was a very proud alumna of the University of Dayton (or as she referred to it, UD!). She lived in Point Breeze as a proud “Breezer” until she and Paul married in 1989 and moved to the North Hills of Pittsburgh. Midge had many jobs over her adult life, but her absolute favorite was being a mom. She always said her brightest accomplishment was her four wonderful children. Her life revolved around family, faith, friends, and fun. She was one of the most inviting people you would ever meet – always making people feel welcomed and comfortable – no matter what the setting.
Midge was the most accomplished Catholic grade school cross country coach of all time. During her eleven-year tenure, her St. Teresa Titans teams won more Diocesan championships than any other school in history (as far as we know). More importantly, she welcomed all runners, and all had fun. Hundreds of children and parents became lifelong runners thanks to the passion she shared for the sport. Midge loved to dance, and people might say she embodied the phrase “dance like nobody is watching”—but it didn’t make a difference to her if they were! Her deep faith in God gave her the strength and fight to enjoy every last moment of her life.
The family would like to thank the team at AHN Cancer Center and her AHN Hospice at Home team for their compassionate care as well as the countless acts of kindness and support from her friends and family. A viewing will be held on Friday, February 5, 2021 from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. at Devlin Funeral Home Inc. 806 Perry Hwy North Hills. A mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, February 6, 2021 11:00am at St. Teresa of Avila Church in Ross Township, 1000 Avila Ct., 15237.Everyone please meet at church.
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Pittsburgh in her name.
