Sara Waddell

Sara R Waddell (Zanotti), 77, of Hopkinton and formerly of Union, Connecticut, entered eternal rest on June 11 at the Rose Monahan Hospice Home with her loving family. She was born May 1, 1947, in Italy and raised in Framingham. She was a graduate of Framingham High School.

Sara enjoyed spending time with family and friends (new and old). She loved Italian food, especially gnocchi and cannoli. She had a sweet tooth and indulged in desserts all the time, even for breakfast. She was a UConn basketball fan and had fond memories of the games she attended in person. She looked forward to “The Bachelor” TV series and always had fun chatting about it with her friends. Her true love was her dog, Buddy, who was by her side and provided comfort.

She is survived by her two children, Kim VanDerscoff-Eisen and husband John of Melbourne, Florida, and son Derek VanDerscoff of Indialantic, Florida, and fiancee Jessica Davis, as well as her sister, Maria Hanchett, and nieces Staci Hanchett and Chrissy Hanchett and their families.

In accordance with her wishes, a cremation will take place. There will be no service or visiting hours. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Sara’s memory to VNA Care, Attn: Fund Development, 199 Rosewood Drive, Suite 180, Danvers, MA 01923. Please designate Rose Monahan Hospice Home or Hospice Care for the donation.
