Obituary of Sarah Sorrentino

Sarah Sorrentino (nee Ipri), of West Deptford, New Jersey, passed away on Thursday, December 15, 2022 at the age of 100 and a half.



Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, Sarah has lived with her daughter Annette in West Deptford for the past 36 years.  


Sarah was devoted to her family and had a loving and strong relationship with each of them.  Many fond memories were made with family gatherings, playing cards, or at the many trips to the casinos.  They attended the opening of the first casino in Atlantic City and spent many weekend trips trying their luck.  Another pastime was the competitive games of Scrabble between Salvatore and Sarah; once Salvatore passed away, Annette and Valerie joined the game.


Sarah was loving, strong willed and was not afraid to let you know her opinion...whether you liked it or not.  In saying that, Sarah had enormous faith and family and friends were comforted knowing that if Sarah said she would pray for you, the prayer was said.



Beloved wife of the late Salvatore Sorrentino: devoted mother of Annette Guzzo and her husband Anthony and Valerie Lizzio and her late husband Alfred; cherished grandmother of Mark (Susan) Guzzo, Stephanie (Paul ) Pallen, Robert (Stacia) Guzzo, Matthew Guzzo (Laura) and Laura Guzzo; loving great grandmother of Sabrina and Melissa Pallen, Adam and Lucas Guzzo, Mya, Gio, Rose and Danny Guzzo, Eli and Isaac Guzzo.  Sarah is survived by many loving nieces and nephews and predeceased by her 10 siblings.
