On August 9 in her home, surrounded by family, the Lord called Suanne O'Hara Savino to be with her original family. She was born to John and Esther (Marriott) O'Hara in Utica, NY on November 2, 1937 and enjoyed a beautiful life with her husband Anthony, her four children and three grandchildren. She was a devout Catholic and a communicant of All Saints Parish.
She and her husband enjoyed their almost 60 years of marriage, mostly, in Upstate and Western NY. In the 1970s they lived in Jeffersonville, NY where her husband was Principal of Jeffersonville-Youngsville School and they resided across the street. There they were members of St. George's Catholic Church and enjoyed the outdoor life of swimming, boating, skating, skiing, tennis, apple picking and picnicking.
Suanne's spirit was the sunshine that engaged all who crossed her path, emitting from her ever present smile, it would brighten any space she occupied. We are confident it continues today in heaven and warmly blessing here.
In addition to Anthony, Suanne is survived by her four children and three grandchildren: Michael (Michelle), Darien, CT; Thomas of Corning; Kathleen (Kevin), Colts Neck, NJ; and Mary Jo; grandchildren Katie, Lauren and Piper of Darien. Besides her children and grandchildren, she is survived by cousins in the Rochester, NY area and several dozen nieces and nephews.
