Sally A. Siskavich

Aug. 31, 1939 - April 2, 2014

PLATTSBURGH — LYON MOUNTAIN - Sally A. Siskavich, 74, of the Standish Road, Lyon Mountain died Wednesday, April 2, 2014, at CVPH Medical Center, Plattsburgh after a life well-lived. Born on Aug. 31, 1939, Sally was the only child born of Shirley Gonyea and Helen Thompson.

She 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 Siskavich and his wife, Mona, Mark Siskavich and his wife, Sherrie, Helen Hossley and her husband, John, David Siskavich and his wife, Elizabeth, and Karen Siskavich and her fianc, George Oehler; her grandchildren, Michael and his wife, Colby, Mark and his partner, Heather, Stacy and her fiance, 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 the 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.
