Sarah Emma Blake

September 12, 1933 ~ October 14, 2021 (age 88)


Sarah Emma Blake left this earth on October 14, 2021 to spend eternity with Jesus. Sally was the oldest of 10 children born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she lived for most of her life. She was preceded in death by her parents, James and Helen Blake, and sisters Audrey, Patty, Arlene, Judy, and Ginger. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Harold & Scarlett Temple, grandchildren Dalton (Christina), Lincoln, Blake, and Bailey Temple, siblings Jim Blake (Bobbie) of New York, Betty Ann Novak (Bob), Linda Enciso (Rhonda), and Ed Blake all of Pittsburgh, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Sally attended Elizabeth Seaton High School, worked several grocery stores jobs as a cashier and butcher, and raised Harold as a single mom with the help of her loving family. After Harold moved to Georgia in 1984, Sally went back to school to earn her CNA and worked for the Eldercrest Nursing Home in Munhall, Pennsylvania before moving south to be closer to her beloved son. She loved Family Feud, a #4 Checkers’ meal, chocolate ice cream, and was known for her amazing deviled eggs. She was definitely an original and will be dearly missed. A celebration of life will be held in Pittsburgh on a date to be determined.
