Mary Sasson

Mary Catherine (née McDermott) Sasson, a resident of New Rochelle, passed away on October 7, 2020. She was 86.
Mary was born on January 22, 1934 in the Bronx to the late John & Catherine (Cahill) McDermott.
Mary was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Peter, and son, Carl.
Mary met her husband, Peter, at a Church Dance in 1953 and they were married a year later on August 28, 1954 at St. Philip & James Church in the Bronx. They moved to Pelham Manor in Westchester and raised their 5 children – Peter (Kris), Patricia (Patrick McKenna), Carl, John (Patricia), and Robert (Jacqueline).
Mary was a loving Nana to her 8 grandchildren Brittany, Liam, Quincy, Spencer, Bennett, Piper, Dylan and Emma and loved to brag and boast about them to anyone who would listen.
Peter and Mary were married for 65 years. Family and Friends celebrated their 65th Anniversary last year, and “a good time was had by all.”
For the last 4 years, Peter was confined to a nursing home, and our Mom visited him every day, spending all day caring for him and making him laugh with her many funny stories. When anyone asked why she would spend all day there with him she always answered, “What else would I do? He’s my life.” Peter passed away on April 11, 2020.
They lived for each other and we truly believe our Mom died of a broken heart.
A Memorial Mass will be scheduled at a later date.
