Sarah Viola Wansack
Heaven welcomed another angel. Sarah passed peacefully surrounded by family on March 14th, 2023 at St. John XXIII Nursing Home. Sarah was a blessing to her family and all who knew her. She lived a beautiful life alongside her husband Joe, whom she was with for 62 years before his passing.
She was an excellent baker and was renowned for her pies. She would sometimes bake up to 15 pies a day for the annual church bazaars. In addition to baking Sarah was a devoted member of St. Michael’s Byzantine Catholic Church. Her strong faith followed her to St. John XXIII Nursing Home where she could be seen attending daily mass. She also loved tending to her flower beds and gardens, feeding the wild birds off her porch, taking Sunday drives to the mountains, and spending time with her family and loved ones. Sarah also took great joy in her dog companion Abby, but most of all Sarah was a homemaker who took great pride in her family.
She is survived by her children, Kathy (Don) Schmidt of Hermitage, PA; Dave (Ellen) Wansack of West Middlesex, PA; sister, Sherry (Tony) Vaccaro of Greenville, PA; brother, Robert (Mae) Caldwell of Hubbard, OH; grandchildren, David (Katelyn) Wansack, Tammy (Larry) Schuller, Jackie (Charles) Jurenovich, Jessica (Adam) Hoover; great-grandchildren, Jesse Barris and his fiancé Jessica McCreary, Cheyenne Barris, Rudy Schuller, Savannah Schuller, Wyatt Schuller, Joey (Emmy) Wansack, Ashlie Wansack, Liam Wansack, Maisy, Sadie, and Charlie Rose Hoover.
Sarah was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph; daughter, Mari-Jo Moon; sister, Mildred Stabile; and brother, Gene Sutton.
