Sally Siskavich

Aug. 31, 1939 - April 2, 2014

LYON MOUNTAIN — Sally A. Siskavich, 74, of Standish Road, died Wednesday, April 2, 2014, at CVPH Medical Center, after a life well-lived. Born Aug. 31, 1939, she was the only child born to Shirley Gonyea and Helen Thompson. Sally was married to Robert M. Siskavich Sr. for over 55 years. They celebrated life's joys together and became stronger through life's challenges. Of the many gifts she left this world, the most important was her love of family. Her children, Mike, Mark, Helen, David, and Karen; their respective partners, Mona, Sherrie, John, Liz and George; her grandchildren, Michael and his wife Colby, Mark his partner Heather, Stacy and her fianc^ Paul, Averiel, Brooke, Mackenzie and Noah; her great-grandchildren, Kendel and Easton, were privileged to have her in their lives. She instilled the importance of kindness, caring, and generosity by demonstrating the value in a simple smile or a soft touch.

A consummate civil servant, Sally worked for Clinton County Department of Human Services for over 30 years. She enjoyed her retirement through traveling. She visited several places of her dreams including Hawaii, Colorado, Yellowstone National Park and many warm Caribbean islands. When home, she worked part-time at WIC and the Health Department and was elected to the Town of Dannemora's Board, where she served for eight years and eventually took a job closer to home as administrative assistant and bookkeeper for the priest at St. Bernard's parish in Lyon Mountain.

Route 374, from Lyon Mountain to Plattsburgh, was ingrained in her; having traveled the route over 25,000 times in her lifetime, whether it was for work, shopping or attending the many athletic events her children and grandchildren participated in over the years. She loved the beauty of Chateaugay Lake and spent as much of the summers on or near the lake as possible. She marveled at the unique and beautiful homes located there, always secretly longing to live in an elegant, unique house on the lake instead of the sameness of the houses in our old mining town, she took great pride in the hearth and home she did create. The home she created, however, had little to do with the physical structure and everything to do with the values she instilled in her children.
