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. Services: A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, September 21st at 10:30 a.m. in the Queenship of Mary Church, 1324 Newport Ave., Northampton. 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.

To Sally's family....Sally was a kind, confident, and adept coworker. She always helped create a comfortable working environment. She was blest with a long life but kept a youthful attitude. It was nice having known and worked beside her at each version of "Western Electric" that came down the pike. REQUIESCAT IN PACE, Sally, may you rest in peace.

Tim, Todd and Patrice, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I smiled and cried when I read what you wrote. I always looked forward to having the chance to 'bum around' with Aunt Sally and my Aunt Liz on my days with my dad and spending time in your house was a huge treat. After football games, and other times, getting to hang around.... so many special memories of your mom and Uncle Russ.

Sending prayers of love and healing - God Bless you all.

Dear Patrice,
I was sorry to read of your mother's passing in this morning's paper. I'm sure that dying in her home was her wish. She sounds like quite a character. I think you might be a little bit like her.
Please accept my sympathy.
