Nicassio, Sandra




Sandra "Sandy" Nicassio age 69 of Plum Boro passed away on Sunday May 3, 2020 after a 3 year battle with Ovarian Cancer. She is survived by her children, Anthony (Christy) of Gibsonia, Mark (Chrissy) of Pittsburgh, Christina of Plum Boro and her grandchildren, Tony and Joey. She was preceded in death by her husband, Dr. Anthony J. Nicassio M.D. Sandy worked as a Realtor with Northwood Realty, but her reputation went far beyond just her occupation. Sandy’s zest for life was readily apparent as she seized every opportunity to live life to its fullest! Sandy had an appreciation for fashion, home decor and travel. Her enthusiasm for shopping (especially at Chico’s and Home Goods) and keen sense of style were her trademarks. She loved to travel to the beach and feel the warm sun on her face while enjoying the company of her dear friends and loved ones. She was a fantastic cook who technically did not like to cook; however, she did love bringing her family together and no one could resist her food. Sandy went above and beyond to provide the most elaborate holidays for her family, filled with beautiful decorations (five Christmas trees!!), delicious meals and most importantly unmeasurable love. Providing amazing memories for her kids and grandsons meant everything. To say she will be missed as a loving mother, nana, aunt, cousin, friend, etc. is an understatement to just how amazing she was. The biggest gift she left behind was to demonstrate love through her actions rather than just words. Generous, loving and selfless are just a few of the traits that made countless friends feel like family. Her circle of loved ones created an army of support to help her fight cancer, and her children will be forever grateful. Sandy was the strongest woman her family and friends ever knew. Her resilience, both mentally and physically left her family and friends in awe. She will forever be missed but we’ll be comforted by the fond memories she left behind. May she rest in peace with her husband Tony at the beach. The family held a private viewing and funeral service, followed by entombment in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Penn Hills. Memorial contributions may be made in her name to Hillman Cancer Center, 5320 Centre Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15232.
