OWASCO — Ida G. (Dagnesi) Sedor, 83, of Owasco, passed away peacefully early Tuesday morning, Oct. 10, 2017 at the Finger Lakes Center For Living.
She was born in Auburn, the daughter of the late Vincenzo and Lucia Carangelo Dagnesi and had been an area resident for most of her life. Together with her best friend and husband, Paul, they enjoyed wintering in their Naples, Fla. home. Ida was a very devout Catholic and longtime communicant of both Sacred Heart Church and St. Ann’s in Naples.
Ida was a longtime beautician and served as hostess for the family owned Sunset Restaurant on North Division Street for many years. Besides spending time with her husband, Paul, Ida cherished all the times she was fortunate enough to spend with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She also enjoyed an occasional purchase or two on her favorite channel, QVC. Ida’s gentle smile, charismatic ways and golden heart will continue to keep beating through the souls of those she touched.
She is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, Paul Sedor, of Owasco; three sons, Gregory M. (Jacque) Sedor, PA, CAA, of Atlanta, Ga., Dennis P. (Michele) Sedor, Esq., of Auburn, and Dr. Jeffery A. (Dr. Donna) Sedor, of Upper Saddle River, N.J.; eight grandchildren, Jessica (Edward) Mueller, Paul F. Sedor, Alisha Sedor, Esq. (Derek) Aman, Dustin P. Sedor, Dr. Alanna Sedor, Alexandra Sedor, Gabrielle Sedor, and Jacob Sedor; two great-grandchildren, Landon and Nolan Mueller; two sisters, Theresa Odrzywolski, and Ann Caruana, both of Auburn; a brother, Michael (Barbara) Dagnesi, of Owasco; two brothers-in-law, Peter (Mary) Sedor, of Auburn, and Captain Gerald Sedor, of New Hampshire; as well as several nieces, nephews, and friends both here and in Florida.
In addition to her parents, Ida was predeceased by a sister, Mary Recckio, and brother, Clementine “Clem” Dagnesi.
Friends and relatives are invited to join the family at 10:30 a.m. Monday in Sacred Heart Church for Ida’s Mass of Christian burial. Ida will be taken to her final resting place in St. Joseph’s Mausoleum, by a horse drawn carriage. Calling hours are from 2 to 5 p.m. this Sunday afternoon at the Pettigrass Funeral Home, 196 Genesee St., Auburn.
The family would like express their most sincere thanks to the staff at both Finger Lakes Center For Living and Auburn Community Hospital, especially Third Memorial Staff and Dr. John Ryan for their loving care and compassion that was shown to Ida during her stay.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like any contributions to be made in Ida’s memory, due to that exceptional care to Auburn Community Hospital, c/o Finance Department, 17 Lansing St., Auburn, NY 13021.
