Barbara Ellen McCaw Sansone
Barbara Ellen McCaw Sansone passed away peacefully at the age of 74 on March 23, 2018 at her home in Tinley Park, IL. She is survived by her beloved husband of 54 years Leo Sansone; her children Mike (Amy) Sansone, Susie (Jim) Hamilton, Mark (Jen) Sansone and Margie (Bill) Janes; her brothers Gilbert (Randy) McCaw, Bill (Karen) McCaw, Don (Joan) McCaw and Joe (Terese) McCaw. Barb cherished her grandchildren Nick, James, Julia, Haley, Hunter and Arabella. She is preceded in death by her parents Gilbert and Josephine McCaw and her brother Pat McCaw. She treasured all of her brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews and godchildren. Barb had hundreds of friends and neighbors that she cherished, including from St. Gabriel High School, St. Victor's Parish, Calumet City, Bible Study group, intercessory prayer group, St. Mary's Parish and prayer partners. Prayer was very important in her life. She began every morning praying for multitudes of family and friends. Anyone who needed prayers, all they had to do was call Barb and they were put on her prayer list -- once you were on it, you were never off of it. Her passion was cooking and especially baking. She loved baking for any occasion, making everyone their favorites. Her family will receive friends at Kurtz Memorial Chapel, 102 E. Francis Road, New Lenox, IL 60451 on Monday, March 26th, 2018 from 2:00 PM until 9:00 PM.
