CALIG, ANITA SALLY: Age 89, of Pittsburgh, passed on Thursday, June 28 with her son and daughter by her side. Born in Bridgeton, NJ, Sally née Serata was the beloved daughter of Benjamin and Molly Serata. She shared a deep bond with her dear brother Isaac “Buddy”  Serata, his wife Lorraine and aunt, Becky Blumenfield. As a young woman, Sally was married to Leonard Schrank and became mother of Victor, Amy and Ira. Sally was married for many years to Harold Calig, with whom she enjoyed many trips and shared wonderful friends. Late in life Sally found special companionships with Edward Sable and Jerry Ostrow. Sally, an independent woman, was kind, caring and generous to all. She had great intelligence, sharp wit (funny in a fantastic way) played a wicked game of cards, welded a great golf swing, and always had style. Along with her surviving children, she will be lovingly remembered by her granddaughter, Sophia Schrank, daughter-in-law Valerie Reichert; nephew Dan, wife Vivian and their daughters; nephew, Bobby; niece, Joy Serata and her sons; and Sally’s many, many dear friends. A special thanks to Frankie, Mary and the staff of UPMC for helping Sally through her last days. Services at RALPH SCHUGAR CHAPEL, Inc., 5509 Centre Avenue, Shadyside on Thursday, July 5, 2018, at 1 PM. Visitation one hour prior to services, (12 Noon - 1 PM). Interment Beth Shalom Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to National Council of Jewish Women Pittsburgh, 1620 Murray Avenue, Pittsburgh PA 15217 (412) 421-6118.
