On Friday March 8, 2019, Sharon Hepp departed this life after years of courageously battling kidney disease and ultimately succumbing to Ocular Melanoma. Born on 12/04/1955 as Leslie Sharon Elden, Sharon always strived to set the best example she could. She spent most of her life as a homemaker, caring for her three children and beloved husband. She also made time to complete a GED while caring for her family, and completed her certificate as a Certified Nurse's Assistant, which was a career choice she greatly enjoyed. In her free time, she supported her husband's devotion to sports, created art, excelled at Scrabble and other word games, and sang as she danced with what her "mama gave her". Her family, nuclear and extended, meant the world to her. In her later years, she cherished being a Nana to her three grandchildren who were the lights of her life.

Sharon is survived by her one & only, Thomas P. Hepp (married 10/26/1974) and her children Patricia (Kyle) Hepp-Miller, Leslie Hepp, & Timothy (Samantha) Hepp. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Hannah Hepp, Alex Hepp, and Jacob Hepp. In addition, she is survived by her mother, Mary Mantello Elden, her eight remaining siblings; Francis (Raymond) Maceda, Marybeth (Arthur) Durivage, Deborah (Peter) Dziamba, Leslie C. Elden, David (Heather) Elden, Darlene (Phil) Bubb, Paul (Cathy) Elden, and Carol (Joseph) Landy, and her brother-in-law, Donald Leonard Sr. She is further survived by numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, uncles and aunts, and cousins.

Sharon was pre-deceased by her father, Leslie Elden; her in-laws, Valentine Patrick and Helen Hepp; her brother, Robert Elden; her sisters-in-law, Geraldine (Mauro) Hepp Mamawal, Patricia (Leo) Hepp Bouchard, Charlene Hepp, Sister Mary Lou Hepp, CSJ, and Helen Hepp Leonard, and her nephews Stephen Durivage, Donald Leonard, and Ray Scott Maceda.


Friends and family are welcome to gather for the wake at the John J. Sanvidge Funeral Home, Inc., cor. of 115th. Street & 4th Avenue in Lansingburgh (565-4th. Ave. Troy, NY 12182) on Friday from 4-7 pm.


A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday at 9:30 am at St. Jude the Apostle Church, 42 Dana Ave. Wynantskill, NY 12198.


Sharon requested that memorial contributions be made to her grandchildren's college-education fund, made payable to: "Thomas P. Hepp and mail to SEFCU 700 Patroon Creek Blvd Albany NY 12206".  Entombment will be in St. Mary's Cemetery, Troy, NY.



Daily Announcements

Good morning St. Patrick's Alumni, Family and Friends,

             We hope this message finds everyone well.  It is hard to believe that we are going on nine years that our church doors were closed.   What is amazing is how strong our St. Patrick's Family bonds have been.   A huge thank you goes out to so many people from our group for all their contribution. We have had a lot of losses since the closing of our church which has been so sad. Please let's take a minute to remember all our St. Patrick's Alumni who have passed away and the 36 Alumni listed below who have passed away since the closing of our church in 2010.  They are all deeply missed.


James F. Baker, Marie Davey, Diane Spinelli, Rev Brian Cronin, John Campbell, John Mahar, Joseph Stasack, Joseph Ienco, William Ahearn, Norine Murray, Joseph Connors, Helen Corrigan Wright, Roger Ayotte, Carol Purtell, Joyce Gordon, Dolores Finn, Michael Horan, Sister Elizabeth Ann OBryan, Margaret Hayner, Marvin Hayner. SR., Thomas J Cooley, Sister Carol Anne Porter, Veronica (Ronnie) Norton, Robert Murray, Francis Murray, Dorothy Bartoski.   Robert (Bob) Zellweg, James A Risley, Glenn Liney, William Wells, Robert Gordon, Thomas M. Riley, Patricia Simmons Mitola, Janet Wells, Robert Elden, and John P Norton.


First off we would like to thank all the Alumni and Family and Friends. If it was not for you and attendance to all our events we would not be as strong as we are.  A special thank you goes out to Father David Jones he really is an inspiration to us all.  Special thank you to Anthony Perniciaro from McLoughlin & Mason if not for his generosity for letting us use his facility to hold our mass every day and every special event we could not have stayed so strong.  To all the committee members that make all the arrangements, and for all the mass services thank you.   


The committee met, and we are finalizing the 2019 calendar. It will be up shortly on the website  As our group gets smaller and smaller it is harder and harder to get venues that we can afford last year we were able to secure the Lansingburgh Boys and Girls Club. We would like to thank Michael Manupella and his staff for their continued support.    This year our St. Patrick's Day Celebration will again take place at the Lansingburgh Boys & Girls Club, 501 4th Ave, Troy NY 12182. It will be a mass followed by a bring your own Irish dish to share. The Alumni will be providing the Corn Beef, Potatoes, Cabbage, Carrots, Beverages, Paper Products.  We will still need to have RSVP only to make sure we have enough Corn Beef, beverages, and supplies.  The flyer for the event is also attached to this email.    The facility is handicap accessible.  We are hoping for a great turn out and have a lot of fun.  We will have 3 other major events this year.  Our Easter Celebration, Summer Picnic, and Christmas Party.  Please check the website for details on the events. 

             Just a reminder we be having a Mass Service for Ash Wednesday please see details below. God Bless and Have an Enjoyable Day!


St. Patrick's Alumni Committee and Father David Jones.
