Obituaries » Sandy Schalk

God called Sandy Schalk, 53, Orlean — one of his Angels — home to be with Him on Wednesday, October 10, 2018.

She was born September 24, 1965, in Scranton, Pennsylvania, to Della-Ann Schalk and the late. Rev. Donald J. Schalk.

Sandy was loved and adored by her family. While she was not able to speak words, the sparkle in her eyes revealed the love she felt for her devoted mother. She attended Broome County ARC/ACHIEVE day program in New York state for 28 years and was known as “Dolly.” There, she stole the hearts of her peers and staff and was well known for the elaborate Halloween costumes her mother made. Sandy was loved by those who cared for her at the Loder Avenue home in Endicott, New York, where she resided for 17 years before moving to Virginia in October 2015. Once in Virginia, she brought joy to those who cared for her at Culpeper and Brookside Rehabilitation and Nursing Care facilities the past three years. Sandy will be sorely missed, but all who knew her realize that she has been welcomed to her eternal home in heaven and is at peace.

In addition to her mother, Della-Ann, Sandy’s survivors include two siblings, Donald J. Schalk Jr. and his wife Tammy of Dover, Pennsylvania, Eloise A. Casterline and her husband Darryl of Orlean; her nephew, Terry Cromer; three nieces and their spouses, Nikki Myers and husband John, Elizabeth Casterline and husband David and Eileen Casterline, and six grandnieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday, October 19, when the service will begin Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. Interment will follow at Hillcrest Memory Gardens near Jeffersonton.

Memorial contributions may be made to International Rett Syndrome Foundation, 4600 Devitt Drive, Cincinnati, Ohio 45246.
