Obituary of Mary K. Sack

MARY K. SACK Niskayuna-Mary K. Sack, 98 of Niskayuna, beloved wife of the late Herman O. Sack., entered into eternal life on Friday, November 13, 2020 with her loving family at her side. Born in Watervliet, on February 7, 1922, she was the daughter of the late Axenty and Eva (Spiak) Karafanda. She was married to Herman O. Sack for over 62 year prior to his passing on February 7, 2006. She was a graduate of Mildren Elley Business School. Mary worked for General Electric in Schenectady and then she was a Real Estate Broker with Moffat-Hollis Real Estate in Latham for over 20 years. Her greatest joy in life was her family and her friends. She loved golfing, crocheting as well as playing bridge and scrabble. Mary was fashioned minded and took great pride in her appearance. Wearing a scarf was her signature trademark. Even when she was hospitalized you would find her with an armful of pretty bracelets. For those of you unable to be with us, Mary would love nothing more than if you celebrated her life with a game of Scrabble, a glass of wine, and some quiet conversation with someone you love. Survivors include her loving children Carolyn (Keith) Sack-Christiansen, Sharon (Jim) Sack-Waldbillig and Barbara (John) Sack-Ruocco, her cherished grandchildren Kevin Weishaar, Lauren Weishaar, Brian (Allison) Hynes, Stacey (Christopher) Pagliaro, Jennifer (Mason) Peralta and Rebecca Ruocco, her great-grandchildren Lillian Hynes, Noelle Hynes, Katie Pagliaro, Samantha Pagliaro, Matthew Pagliaro and Isla Peralta, her sister-in-law Mary Karafanda. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews.
