Silvia Ann “Sas” McMurray Gasser, age 86, of New Philadelphia died peacefully, Wednesday, July 14, 2021, in her residence.

Born on June 30, 1935, in her family’s Tuscarawas County home, Sas was a daughter of the late Charles McMurray, Silvia (Strimbu) McMurray Reymond and Edgar Reymond.

She was a graduate of the former Midvale High School and once she had raised her three sons, returned to the workforce and worked for many years at ECO SERRC prior to her retirement. Sas was an avid fan of the Cleveland Indians and Browns and could often be heard offering her coaching tips to the television. Additionally, Sas enjoyed cooking for her family and keeping the landscaping around her home in top shape. She was also very involved in the lives of her family and rarely missed an opportunity to support not only her own sons while they were in school, but later her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to be with her family and share time with them.

Sas will be missed by her sons, Larry (Pat) Gasser and Bob (Deb) Gasser both of New Philadelphia; a sister, Sidney Shaw Hardman of Florida; her grandchildren, Matthew Gasser, Brian Gasser, Jesse Gasser, Randy (Kim Levinson) Gasser, Trent (Kenzie) Thompson, Natalie Scott, Erica Gasser, and Michele (Brett) Warner; her great-grandchildren, Mackenna Gasser, Austin Adams Gasser, Brooklyn Gasser, Griffin Gasser, Maddox Thompson, Jack Thompson, Brynley McVickers, Bryson McVickers, Braxten McVickers, Payne Wagner, Rylie Warner and Mason Warner, and her nieces and nephews.

In addition to her father, mother and step-father, Sas was preceded in death by a son, Mike Gasser; a brother, Dave Reymond, and her former husband, Dean Gasser.

A memorial visitation will be held on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, from 4-7 PM in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia.

The family requests instead of flowers, contributions be directed to the Midvale High School Alumni, c/o Mallory Holmes Hutchison, 146 York Drive SE, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.

I only met Sas once and I wish that I could have gotten to know her more than I did. Her father Charles Mc Murray who passed away as a young man was my Great Uncle. He passed away long before I was born but if he was as kind as my Great Uncles, Lee and John Mc Murray or my Grandma Gail and Great Aunt Bernice Mc Murray. ( Charles Brothers and Sisters.) I would have loved to have known him. My thoughts are with Sas's family and friends.

So sorry to hear about SAS, as neighbors & friends we will miss her. Prayers go out to the entire family. We loved her like family and would have done anything for her over the years. Glad she got a vacation in with family at 86 in SC a week or so before passing. Doug, Ulla, Julia, & Kaylee Ress

I am sad to hear the passing of my beautiful friend ‘Sas’. My heart goes out to her wonderful family. May your memories surround you with love and healing. You all meant everything to her. Sas was a kind loving woman. Her laughter was contagious and you would always have a good time. We shared a lot of fun times and trips together. I will miss my friend forever. I love you Sas and am truly blessed that you were in my life.

My sincere condolences to the family. GG was a very sweet and kindhearted lady, with a perfect touch of ornery. I’m glad I got to meet her and truly enjoyed the times I got to be around her. I’m sure she’ll be missed dearly by many, but also open-arm welcomed and embraced by the Lord. I can only imagine what this new chapter is like for her now. Praying God’s peace and comfort to all.
