In memory of
Serafina "Sara" Cicala
Serafina (Sara) Cicala passed away peacefully at her home in Bellefonte, DE, on October 17, 2014 at the age of 95. She was a lifelong resident of Delaware. Sara was born in May of 1919 in Bellevue, Delaware, and lived on the estate of Joseph S. Keen with her parents, Isidoro and Venera Finocchiaro, step-mother, Maria, and seven brothers. While her brothers took care of the property, Sara tended to the residence of Mr. Keen. Mr. Keen was so impressed with Sara, he offered her an opportunity to move to France and be educated formally, but Sara remained in Delaware to be with her family and to help raise her brothers after Venera's early death. Sara met her future husband, Francis (Frank), while they were both infants. They were friends for many years and married in 1953, enjoying 48 years together until Frank's death in 2001. Sara was predeceased by her seven brothers, Ray, Joe, Ben, Marty, Sam, Mike and John, and her husband, Frank. She is survived by two sisters-in-law, Lucy and Josephine Finocchiaro, and many nieces and nephews. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:30am on Thursday, October 23rd, at St. Helena's Church, 602 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, DE, where family and friends may visit from 10:30 to 11:30 am. Entombment will be in Cathedral Cemetery. Contributions may be made in memory of Sara to St. Helena's Church, 602 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, DE 19809.
