Obituary

Sarah Jane Reardon of Norristown, PA passed away Monday, October 15, 2018.

She was 67 years old. Born in Philadelphia, PA to John Joseph and Sarah Rita McKenna Reardon. Beloved sister of Dennis Francis Reardon (Kathy), Vincent Reardon, Maureen Anne Smith (late Ronald), Michael Reardon (Helene), Anne Marie Reardon (Suzanne Brady), the late Martin Reardon (Linda), Joseph Reardon and John Reardon (late Barbara). Also survived by her many cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.

After being raised in a household with eight siblings, Sarah Jane treasured her quiet apartment in Norristown with her brother Vincent. There she tended the family "archives", keeping detailed records of the births, deaths, comings and goings of her large family. Her memory was legendary. All anyone had to do was ask her when something happened, and she was ready with the answer. Most of the time, she didn't even have to consult her records.

She followed current events and kept up with celebrities. She was gifted with good common sense and a great sense of humor, which often came to the fore when she was watching political news or sporting events. Thursday night family pizza dinners were a special favorite. Attending family gatherings was one of the activities she enjoyed most. They gave her a chance to see the newest additions to the family and to be part of the happy and sad moments that bring families together. She loved seeing pictures and videos of the babies and children as they grew up and delighted in telling everyone how many great nieces and nephews she had.

She was a beloved part of our family and will be greatly missed by all of us.
