Sarah Verdone, cherished wife of Tucker Viemeister and mother of Josephine and Louisa, died on March 11 at the age of 45.
Surrounded by those who loved her, Sarah died peacefully at home after an extraordinarily brave battle with cancer that ended her all-too-short time with her loved ones. Sarah gave every ounce of herself to living throughout her illness, supported by countless friends and her six loving sisters and brothers. Her absence will not only be felt by those who knew her intimately and cared for her deeply, but also by those who read her pithy reviews and commentaries on art, design, fashion, food and travel. A great beauty, generous, funny and deeply empathetic, Sarah was a writer who kept family at the center of her life. Tucker’s love and commitment, Josephine’s grace and Louisa’s spirit sustained her in life and will continue to bear witness to her memory.
Tucker Viemeister is the son of the late Beverly and Read Viemeister, of Yellow Springs. Sarah will be missed by a large circle of family and friends that encompass the globe.
