Masluk, Irma "Sally"
Irma "Sally" Masluk, 85, of Northampton passed away peacefully Thursday, September 17, 2015. Surrounded by her loving family, Sally passed away peacefully in the same home in which she was born. She was the wife of the late Russell "Russ" Masluk who died April 2, 2008. Born April 7, 1930 in Northampton, she was the daughter of the late Vincent J. and Rosalie (Ver) Szelthoffer Sr. Sally spent 45 years at Western Electric and in 1992 retired as a supervisor in the Clean Room and a proud member of the Telephone Pioneers of America. She was a member of Queenship of Mary Church and the former St. Michael the Archangel Church. Sally had been very active with the Altar and Rosary Society and continued to be a passionate supporter and benefactor of the cloistered Carmelite Sisters of Lanark, PA. Sally, like her beloved Russ, was an avid sports fan who genuinely loved her family and friends. Their house was always a center of activity and the place to be. Known to many as "Sally Jagermeister", the door was always open, a game was always on TV and everyone was always welcomed. Day or night, you never knew who you'd find at her kitchen table. Friends and neighbors would stop for something to eat, share a story, or simply drop in to catch a few minutes of whatever game was on TV and have an ice cold shot of "Jäger". Sally's home was always full and never closed. Survivors: Sons, Tim Masluk, of Bethlehem, Dr. Todd J. Masluk, of Northampton, and daughter, Patrice, wife of Dr. Daniel Schwartzman, of Easton, grandson, Dr. Nicholas Masluk, of New York, granddaughters, Stephanie, Emily and Robin. Sally was predeceased by 9 brothers and sisters.

Family and friends may call Sunday 5 - 8:00 p.m. and Monday 9 - 10:00 a.m. in the Reichel Funeral Home, 326 E. 21st St., Northampton.
