AUBURN – Sarah Deletetsky, a vibrant, energetic 88-year young Sarah died peacefully Wednesday, July 11, with her family by her side.

Daughter of the late Israel and Rebecca Feinstein, she was born on Feb. 14, 1919, in Tewksbury, Mass. She was the youngest of five children. She married the late Abraham Deletetsky of Auburn on Feb. 22, 1947 in Boston, Mass.

She was employed as a buyer at the former Peck’s Department Store for several years, until its closing. She was later employed at the Maine Job Service in Lewiston.

She was a member of Congregation Beth Abraham Synagogue and was a lifetime member of the Beth Abraham Sisterhood. She spent time as a Sunday school and Hebrew school teacher at the Lewiston/Auburn Jewish Community Center.

In recent years, she spent her time as a volunteer at Sisters of Charity Health Systems and Central Maine Medical Center.

She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend to all she knew. She is remembered mostly for her avid love of life and also her passion for baking and cooking – known best for her “bubka, latkes and brisket!” She lived an active and independent life until the day she died, including surviving cancer twice – L’Chaim! (To Life!)

She is survived by two sons, Bruce Deletetsky, and companion, Wanda Hammock, of West Warwick, R.I., and Philip, and his wife, Jeanie Twaddle Deletetsky, of Auburn; three grandsons, Jason Deletetsky of Warwick, R.I., Adam Deletetsky of West Warwick, R.I., and Gard, and wife, Deneka Fortier Deletetsky, of Lewiston; many nieces and nephews; and numerous close friends.
