Eda Sahr of Chesterfield, MI passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, at The Village of East Harbor at the age of 95. Eda was born on January 13, 1925, in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, and one of six children born to Michele and Antonina (Petricca) Yamarino. She worked as a secretary at Federal Mogul where she met and later married the late Charles R. Sahr on October 27, 1945. She continued working as a secretary at Ford Motor Company, and later with the State of Michigan, and retired in 1978. Eda and Charles loved to spend time at their Lake James home in northern Michigan with family and friends. She enjoyed reading, crocheting, working crossword puzzles, playing Euchre, solitaire and bingo. Eda is survived by her loving children, Barbara (James) Scarpace, Patricia (William) Colpaert, and Charles (Cynthia) Sahr; dear grandmother of Rachel (Benjamin) Torres, Andrea Kruszyna (Ben Berry), Ryan (Erika) Colpaert, Jessica Sahr, Emily (David) Schmitt, Rebecca (Robert) Giles, Leslie Sahr, and Nathan Sahr. She was adored by her 14 great-grandchildren.

She is also survived by many loved nieces and nephews. Her passing has left a void in the hearts and lives of her family and all who knew her. A private burial has taken place at Resurrection Cemetery. Memorial Services will be held at a later date. Memorial tributes can be made to the St. Bonaventure Capuchin Monastery, 1740 Mt.

On behalf of the Capuchin brothers, I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Eda. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of Eda's life. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire Sahr family during this great time of grief. May perpetual light shine upon Eda.

John and I will always remember her wonderful smile and she always made you feel special. The wonderful times we had at the Petricca picnics. Our thoughts and prayers to her sister Florence and to Eda's family.
