Sandra Sue (Bork) Sernicola

August 4, 1943 ~ July 20, 2021 (age 77)


Sandra Sue Sernicola (Bork) of Canal Fulton, Ohio was welcomed through the gates to a beautiful celebration guided by those who loved her both past and present. There’s no more pain, there’s no more sorrow, and there’s joy to be had. She’s greeted by the true friends and family of her soul who departed before her including her father and mother, Edward and Violet Rose Bork, brothers Danny and David Bork, and sister Connie Bork.

Sue was a creative who expressed her love for family and home though home improvement projects, arts, crafts, sewing, and so much more. She could be found in the kitchen singing as she made one of her beloved soups or comfort foods. She also relished the time in her gardens surrounded by carefully chosen and placed flowers and shrubs. Her true pride and joy was found in her backyard oasis where she enjoyed quiet evenings on her swing with the love of her life for over 54 years, Joe Sernicola, who survives her.

Her life is honored and celebrated by her loving children; Rosemary Sue Cromley and her husband Scott of Canal Fulton, OH; Tony Sernicola of Canal Fulton, OH; and Daniel Sernicola of Columbus, OH. Sue was the devoted mammaw and best friend to two granddaughters who evoked a lot of joy in her life and provided loving care to her, Jackie Yannayon and Mandi Jessep. Grandchildren include Summer, Joey, and Zach Sernicola along with five great-grandchildren whom she adored and delighted in. Surviving siblings include Debbie (don) Gabbert of Clarksburg, WV; Patty Jackovitch of Akron, OH; Nancy Harden of Bridgeport, WV; John (Evelyn) Bork of Clarksburg, WV; and Mike (Mary) Bork of Clarksburg, WV.

While she will be missed deeply, Sue left us with words written inside her personal Bible, “When you do all that you can, God will do what you cannot.” Her faith and love of life sustained her through her courageous battle with lung cancer. She continued to show her hallmark of contemplative grace and strength until her last full and deep breath.

A private service will honor her life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Danja Yoga Community Fund (1125 Oak Street, Columbus, OH 43205 / Venmo @danjayoga) to help provide holistic healing and movement to underserved and special populations or Crossroads Hospice Services.
