“Evelyn, I will never forget, how you could get into your neighbor's voices when I came up there. Netty and the whole gang. ”

Margaret Evelyn Sartori, 92, passed away at St. Joseph of the Pines on August 20.

Evelyn, as she was known, was born in New York City on September 11, 1917, to William and Mary Fogarty, of Ireland. She was one of five children and spent her life in New York City until 2006 when she moved to Southern Pines. She was married to John Sartori for 63 years, until his death in 2004. Her career included working at Macy’s Department Store as a comparison shopper and photographic model. As a young woman, she was queen of the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade. She worked for many years at the Hunter College Library, where she had a devoted following of students whom she supervised and mentored. She was an exemplary wife to her husband and a wonderful mother to her two children.

She is survived by her children, John Sartori, Jr. and Jane Deaton and son-in-law Brian, sister-in-law Louise Herman and many nieces and nephews.

A funeral Mass will be held next week at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, and she will be buried in New York with her husband John at a later date.

The family would like to thank the staff at St. Joseph of the Pines Health Center for their loving care over the past five years. They were like family to her and to her children. They would also like to thank the staff at Community Home Care and Hospice.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to St. Joseph of the Pines, 103 Gossman Drive, Southern Pines, or to Pope John Paul 11 Catholic School, 320 N. Ashe St., Southern Pines. Powell Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
