Sarah was a lifelong member of the Immaculate Conception Church in Fairmont and was involved with youth groups and guilds to support her church and community.

She was the last surviving member of the SMC social club of Fairmont, a group which shared life’s journeys for more than 50 years as extended family members. Sarah supported the Fairmont Elks Lodge and the Knights of Columbus organizations as a member of the woman’s auxiliary.

She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, Richard and Jo Ann Campione of Greenacres, Fla., and Robert “Bob” and Andrea Campione of Morgantown.

Sarah is also survived by brothers, Sam (Maxine) Reppy of Niles, Ohio, and Henry (Helen) Reppy of Pittsburgh, Pa.; a sister, Nellie Squarcette of Morgantown; and a sister-in-law, Louise Reppy of Morgantown.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Angelo Campione in 1984, and a brother, Phillip Reppy.

The family would like to thank the Evergreen Assisted Living Home staff for their compassionate care over the past several years. They became her surrogate family providing her with kind-hearted care and support. Hospice of Morgantown for assisting with her care and their dedication to preserving her personal pride and dignity during her final years was very appreciated.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Hospice of Morgantown or the West Virginia University State of Minds campaign for continued research in finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
