Obituary for Claire S. Satta

Claire S. Satta, 75, a devoted wife, respected teacher, and loving Godmother, died on Monday September 17, 2018 at 8:45am at Woodbine Rehabilitation Center. Claire lived in the Hollin Meadows neighborhood in Alexandria for the past 38 years.
Mrs. Satta was born in Elizabeth, NJ on February 12, 1943 and graduated with a Bachelor in English from Holy Family College in 1964. The next day on June 20, 1964, Claire married the love of her life, Frank Satta. In 1977 Claire achieved her Master of Arts in English cum laude from Westfield (Massachusetts) State University.
Claire taught for a total of 46 years. From 1980 until retirement in 2012, Claire was an English and Drama teacher for the Henry E. Lackey High School in Charles County, Maryland.
Mrs. Satta was a dedicated Catholic. She was a devoted parishioner and supporter of St. Louis Catholic Church. She was a Lector, a Eucharistic Minister, an Auxiliary member of the Legion of Mary, a member of the St. Rose of Lima Guild, and the recording secretary for Christian Women in Action (CWIA).

Claire was predeceased by her husband, Frank Satta in 2005, her father, Harold, in 1949, and her mother, Helen St. Clair, in 1951. She was adopted and loved by her Uncle and Aunt, Frank and Marie Fitzpatrick, who also predeceased her. Survivors include her cousin Lisa Panfile of Mendem, NJ; Godchildren Julia and Michael, and their parents Dr. Kenneth and Katharine S. Hrechka. Claire was a treasured friend to many as well as a dedicated and caring teacher who kept in touch with her students through the years.
Claire’s message to all of us is, “No matter what, if you love someone, truly love someone…it never dies!”
