Sally A. "Sara" Danihel (nee Zappa), 64, a longtime resident of North Riverside, died suddenly on March 9, 2020.

Ms. Danihel was a devoted employee of the village of North Riverside, serving as administrative clerk, as well as taking on several other duties at the Village Commons. 

She enjoyed cooking and dancing, loved her family and sometimes took her chances at the slots. Sally was a familiar face at the village hall and her absence is already being noticed. She'll be missed by the residents of North Riverside.

Ms. Danihel was the wife and beloved 'Honey" to Edward Danihel; "Mama" to Kelly (Michael) Doerr and Kristine (Patrick) Sheridan; "Nonnie" to Macy Jane Sheridan; and the sister of Anna Marie (the late Robert) Fischer.

Family and friends will be received at the Conboy-Westchester Funeral Home 10501 W. Cermak Rd. (2 blocks west of Mannheim Road) in Westchester on Friday, March 13 from 2 to 8 p.m. A chapel service is planned for Saturday, March 14 at 10 a.m., followed by entombment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery, Christ The King Mausoleum, Hillside.

Arrangements were handled by The Original Kuratko Family, Kenneth D. and Brian D. Kuratko, directors.
