Print
SPRINGFIELD- Sally (Takeljian) Jermakian, 88, of Springfield passed away October 14, 2018 at her home surrounded by her loving family. Sally, daughter of the late Merger and Aghavni Takeljian, was born in Indian Orchard on February 23, 1930. She was a graduate of Commerce High School Class of 1947 where she attained straight A’s during her high school years and went on to work for the City of Springfield as a school crossing guard for 35 years. Sally also worked for Milton Bradley for 8 years. She loved her church family at St. Mark’s Armenian Church and was known for her sense of humor, kindness, and for her cooking that included traditional Armenian delicacies that will be sorely missed in her community. Anyone lucky enough to know Sally was treated to a person that was so loving, caring, giving, funny, and a genius in her own way. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Armen Jermakian; her sisters, Rose Gasparian and Vicky Belezarian; her brother, Avak Takeljian; and her nephew, Michael Belezarian. She will be missed by all who knew her, including her sons, Ronald A. Jermakian of Springfield, and David A. Jermakian and his wife Brenda of Wilbraham; her granddaughters, Talene and Ani Jermakian; her sister in law, Armena Vahradian; her nieces, Sonya Janigian, Karen Tesini, Michele Vahradian, and Susan Vahradian; her nephew, Kevin Belezarian; and many extended family members and friends. Visiting Hours for Sally will be held Thursday, October 18, 2018 from 9:30AM to 11AM at St. Mark Armenian Church, 2427 Wilbraham Road, Springfield. Funeral Services will follow beginning at 11AM. Burial will follow in Hillcrest Park Cemetery, 895 Parker Street, Springfield. Sampson’s Family Chapels have been entrusted with her arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Sally’s memory may be made to St. Mark Armenian Church, 2427 Wilbraham Road, Springfield, MA 01129.
