Isabell M. Sarsick


Isabell M. Sarsick, 77, passed away on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 in her daughter’s home in Boynton Beach, FL. She was born on June 26, 1943 in Niskayuna, NY to Anna (Chambers) and Casper Smith.

Isabell was raised on a farm in NY. She was a hardworking farm girl, one of twelve children. Her Daddy always said she was the only hell her mama ever raised. She was one of the most independent, strong women you would ever know.

She loved dancing, playing cards, gardening, and helping others. She always felt the need to cheer people up and put a smile on their face. Her favorite holiday was Christmas, she loved to decorate.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her son Charles Ciccia, sister Ellen Hunt, brothers James and Ralph Smith and her husband Richard Sarsick. She will be in our hearts forever and so deeply missed by her daughters Karen Sims and Theresa Ciccia; sons Gerald Ciccia and Jerome Ciccia, sisters Patricia Ostrander and Emily Filmore; brothers Daniel Smith and George Smith; grandchildren Robert Sims Jr, Pamela Sims, Nicole (Sims) Marano, and Katye Amirzadeh; brother in-law Earl Ostrander, sister in-law Alice Smith, her nieces and nephews, and all her great grandchildren, family, and many friends.

A graveside service will be held 2:30pm Friday, October 2, 2020 at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Hudson Road, Galway where Isabell will be laid to rest. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Isabell’s memory to the Cancer Research Institute (NY City) and Prevent Child Abuse America.

Her name IS-A-BELL says it all. She was the bell of the ball. She was so energetic and full of life. Isabelle would walk into a room and light it up no matter what type of event it was you were going to have fun and be the last to leave because you never wanted it to end with her being there. Our family gathering became fewer over the years but my memories of Aunt Isabelle will always be with me and she will always bring that smile to my face when I think of her.

You will be truly missed by ALL.

To one of the best aunts ever I will miss and love you with all my heart. I will miss seeing you, talking to you, hugging you but I will never miss loving you that will be forever and always I'm not going to say goodbye but only that I'll see you later. Can you please do me a favor and tell my dad that I love him too with all my heart and give him hugs and kisses for my mom and I. I'll always love and miss you forever, never forget that you're one of a kind Aunt Isabell my heart will be forever broken.
