Sarajane Weisberg passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her children and grandchildren on Sept. 10, 2019.
Sarajane was born in Louisville, Ky. just five minutes ahead of her identical twin sister, Shirley Jean, on June 25th, 1928, and had just celebrated her 91st birthday. Sarajane was very industrious and artistic, starting a cake decorating company and then painted skirts for a dry goods store, which both she and her sister modeled. Suffice to say they sold everything they made.
Sarajane made her own clothes as a teenager and continued while she was married. Sarajane met Malcolm Weisberg while he was stationed at Fort Knox then transferred to Fort Meade in Maryland. After his service, they moved to Cleveland and were married in 1952.
Sarajane had many accomplishments. She was president of the PTA in Beachwood and president of the Willowick chapter of ORT. She worked for Hilltop Realty for years and was a top agent. Sarajane was a consummate host and welcomed everyone into her house with her southern charm, making sure everyone ate well and was safe. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother. With each new grandchild, she stayed with them for at least the first 10 days of their lives.
Sarajane is survived by her four children, Linda Shepard, Jeffrey (Patricia) Weisberg, Ricky (Sheryl) Weisberg and Lindsey “Susan” (Darko) Luketic; nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren; and her twin sister, Shirley Jean.
Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Sept. 12 at the Mayfield Cemetery Mausoleum, 2749 Mayfield Road in Cleveland Heights.
The family will receive friends following services on Sept. 12 only at the residence of Jeff and Patti Weisberg, 24503 Letchworth Road in Beachwood.
Arrangements under the direction of Berkowitz-Kumin-Bookatz Memorial Chapel, 216-932-7900.
