Kathleen T. Sanger

January 6, 1954 ~ April 27, 2020 (age 66)


Kathleen T. Sanger of Upper Darby, PA, passed away on April 27, 2020 at the age of 66 years. Loving mother of Marc Sanger and Marisa McKeown(Thomas) and doting Gran of Viviana Valerie McKeown who was the shining light of her life. Devoted daughter to the late John and Theresa Sanger. Caring sister to John Sanger (Mary), Theresa V. Colace (Filindo), Kenneth Sanger (Jhaye), Kevin Sanger(Roxanne) and the late Michael and Valerie Sanger. Affectionate aunt to Tiffany Stancil, Theresa J. Colace, Candace Keenan(Dave), Filindo M. Colace, Alexa Sanger, Madison Sanger and great aunt to Leighton and Colette Keenan.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Kathy graduated from Hallahan High School in 1971. She worked at the Philadelphia DA office as an assistant for Arlen Specter's office. After a period of time, she left to pursue a college education on her own. She graduated from Mansfield State College with a degree in Special Ed. She had two children, Marc and Marisa, that she raised completely on her own.  Through the years she worked with Special Needs children then finally settled at the USPS in the Public Relations department. She retired from there and then devoted her time fully to her children. In addition, during her employment years, she helped with our parents who both had health issues over the years in various capacities.
Kathy's loyalty, kindness and sense of humor will be sorely missed. She has left behind many broken hearts. However, we will do as she requested and not cry for her but instead reminisce about good times while viewing photos with Simon and Garfunkel, Marvin Gaye or John Denver are playing in the background. In honoring Kathy's wishes, there will be no formal services.
