June 26, 1941 — July 18, 2021 (age 80)

GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Three weeks after her 80th birthday, Sandra Fetsko passed away Sunday (July 18).

Sandra was born in Warren June 26, 1941, the only child of Paul and Yolanda Dabelko.

She attended St. Mary's High School and graduated in 1959.

She served as the 1958 homecoming queen.

After graduation, Sandra worked for Youngstown Kitchens and Thomas Steel in Warren as secretary.

In 1964, she married Richard Fetsko of Warren and the couple moved to Detroit where she worked for Honeywell Corp.

In 1969, the couple moved to Atlanta where she worked for Amp Corp. as a regional secretary until 1982 when she helped her husband get a “basement startup company” in the emerging data communications field off the ground.

She served as Secretary Treasurer and with her warm and inviting personality, soon became the spirit of the company.

As the company grew for the next 30-plus years, so did Sandra's responsibilities which she ate up and handled very competently. This also presented her the opportunity to travel extensively by tagging along on the companies’ trade show circuit.

She made new friends wherever she went.

In 2012, health issues necessitated the sale of the company and Sandra retired. Although health issues somewhat restricted travel after retirement, she managed to spend some time at the couple’s winter home in Florida.

She also enjoyed entertaining family and friends at her lake home.

She served on the board of directors of the Fetsko Family Charitable Foundation.

Sandra was preceded in death by her parents, several aunts and her dog, Martin.

She is survived by her husband of 56 years and many cousins.

In spite of her exposure to various places and cultures, Sandra always considered Warren as her home. She will be buried at All Souls Cemetery in Bazetta.

Family and friends may pay their respects Tuesday (July 27) from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Peter Rossi & Son Memorial Chapel, 1884 North Road NE, Warren. A Funeral Mass will begin at 11:30 a.m. at Blessed Sacrament Church in Warren with Rev. Christopher Cicero officiating. A graveside service will follow at All Souls Cemetery in Bazetta.

Family and friends may visit to sign the guestbook and send condolences to the family.
