Mrs. Sarah “Salli” H. Sahm, 73, of Deerfield, passed away after a long illness, on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at her home, with her loving family by her side.
Sarah was born in Syracuse, NY, on December 25, 1946, the daughter of George and Ann (Reilly) Lowery. She was raised and educated in Syracuse and attended East Syracuse High School. On May 25, 1963, Salli was united in marriage with Duane “Dewey” T. Sahm, at St. Matthews Church in E. Syracuse. At one time, Salli was employed with NY Telephone Company, later with the Eagles Club in Deerfield and more recently, with Walmart in N. Utica, until her retirement. Salli enjoyed the beauty of sunflowers, hummingbirds and found great peace and relaxation at her camp at the St. Lawrence River. She will be remembered as a family-oriented woman, whose husband, children and especially her cherished grandchildren, were most important in her life. She was a communicant of St. Peter’s Church in N. Utica.
Mrs. Sahm is survived by her loving husband, Dewey; three children, Kristen Sahm of Deerfield, Eric Sahm of NY Mills and Anne Sahm and her fiancée, Mekchone Khiamdavanh of Deerfield; seven cherished grandchildren, Tiffany, Kiara, Mekchone, Maxon, Mekenna, Katie and Eric, Jr.; one brother and sister-in-law, Hugh and Diane Lowery of Syracuse, as well as several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her son, Mark Donald Sahm and sister, Maryann Beckham.
A private family service will be held at a later date.
