Family owned & family focused since 1952

Marsha Mae Cravener (née Sallade)

Marsha Mae Cravener (née Sallade), 69, of Chandler, AZ peacefully passed away of natural causes on September 10th, 2020 at her home in Chandler where she resided with her daughter. 

She was born on August 7th, 1951 in Sharon, PA to Harold and Donna Sallade, and attended Sharon High School in Sharon, PA, class of 1970.

 In the 1980s, Marsha married Robert Cravener in Las Vegas, Nevada. Marsha was a joy to be with, always laughing and joking, bringing a smile to everyone’s face. An avid animal lover, her house was always full of life. The kindest soul, she would do anything in her power to help another, and her empathy was limitless. She is survived by her daughter Carrie Cravener (along with her cherished grand-pups), her siblings Gary Sallade, Sandra Cravener, Sharie Wheat, Brad Sallade, and many nieces, nephews and stepchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Robert Cravener, her parents Harold and Donna Sallade, and her sister Linda Lyons.

    So sorry for your loss. Every time I think of the Sallade family my memories go back to how much fun I had playing card games or board games. (Risk) Was with all of them in the dining room on Elm st. . Being an only child I felt part of something bigger hanging out with all of you

    I love you mom. I miss you so much already. There’s so many people that love you; you touched more lives than you ever realized. I’m the lucky one, getting to have you as my mom. I’m so, so proud of you. I’m so sorry I couldn’t do more for you.

    I couldn’t ask for a better friend than Marsha. She was so much fun to be with. She even put up with me talking her legs off at times. Then she found her voice. We always had a good time even when things got bad. I’m going to miss her.
    She was a wonderful person who cared about everyone. Her greatest joy was her daughter Carrie. She fought so hard not to leave her. She was very proud of her daughter.

    How do you say goodbye to someone who has been a part of you for over 60 years? Impossible, so I’ll say see you later. Carrie, you were her whole world. You couldn’t have done more. There is an empty corner of my heart she took with her. I’m at peace knowing my best friend in the world is now pain free and at rest. I will miss you always until we meet again. I love you. I love you, Carrie.

    The Sharon High School Class of 1970 sends its deepest sympathy. May Marsha Rest in Peace.

    Marsha was a very kind lady, opening her home to my ex-husband and I for a short stay. She had the best laugh and kind heart. I’m sorry for the families loss
