Age 84, of Carnegie, passed away Sunday, December 24, 2017, after a brief battle with cancer. Daughter of the late Enrico "Henry" and Leona (Cardamone) Cimino. She was always generous and kind, always willing to help anyone. She was always recognized for her caring and her leadership qualities. Sarah was a Registered Nurse, dedicated to her profession 100%, and always looking to improve the system to achieve better patient care. It was natural for her that after graduating Schenley High School that she continued her education in the caring services, graduating from Saint Francis Hospital School of Nursing, then UCLA for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, then on to Boston College School of Nursing for 30 years where she also chaired Committees that contributed to nursing progress.
She will also be remembered as a Peace Corp participant in Malaysia where she taught and implemented new, safer procedures in patient care in a different culture. Sarah considered that experience personally, and professionally enriching. After 30 years, she retired from Boston College and spent 3 years taking care of retired priests of the Boston Diocese in a local nursing home. After that time, Sarah returned home to Pittsburgh, residing close to her family and looked after her mother who lived for 103 years.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Leona Cardamone Cimino and Henry Cimino, and her brother Thomas Cimino.
She will be missed by her sister Mary Theresa (Whitey) Burkart, and many nieces, nephews, friends and colleagues. Friends welcome Friday 9-12:00pm, William Slater II Funeral Service (412-563-2800) 1650 Greentree Rd, Scott Twp 15220. Blessing Service at 12:00pm.
