Sarah Sebastiano Luposello, 84, widow of Anthony (Sonny) Richard Luposello, peacefully passed the morning of May 30th, 2019 in the comfort and presence of family. Sarah was born to John Sebastiano and Jennie (Orsini) Sebastiano on December 4th, 1934 in Yonkers, New York. She graduated from Yonkers High School in 1952 and the State University of New York at New Paltz in 1956 with a Bachelors of Science in Education. Sarah later on received her Master of Arts in Education from the University of Bridgeport in 1980. On April 24th, 1960, she married the love of her life, Sonny, at St. Anthony’s Church in Yonkers. They were married 31 years before Sonny passed away in 1991. She had two wonderful children, Toni Anne and Anthony J. Luposello (deceased). Sarah retired from a 35-year career as a well-loved teacher in the Lakeland Central School District in Westchester County. Although she had not taught in a classroom since 1991, her students remained a powerful presence in her life, making it known what an indelible mark she left on them.

Mrs. Luposello was the greatest! I had her for 2nd grade in 1985-1986. At first my mom didn't want me to have that "loud teacher in the corner" but realized quickly what a blessing it was! She shaped who I am. My writing, manners, etiquette, and love for the Nutcracker, are all a testament to what a great educator she was. I proudly shared my love for the Nutcracker with my children and thought of Mrs. Luposello every time my daughter performed the classic. I was in her class for the Space Shuttle Challenger lift off. She wheeled in a TV cart and we watched. Once the disaster happened, she ran and shut it off, then consoled all of us. She hugged us tight and didn't let go. Mrs. Luposello, you are the brightest star in the sky. I am forever grateful for you love and compassion. I will miss you forever. #Vitamins #Nutcracker #OnlyPersonAllowedToCallMeBecky

Sarah was my second grade teacher at Van Cortland elementary school.
I was in awe of her, her clothes, her hair, the joy and excitement she brought to the classroom stayed with me forever.
She always had a big bowl of M&Ms on her desk and called them vitamins.
She often spoke of her children, she was so proud of them.
My childhood was a little more special because she was part of it.

Sarah was my second grade teacher in 1970 at Van Cort Elementary school. She was one to be remembered. Demanding, yet tender at times. The fact I still remember her 50 years later is a testament to her excellence as a teacher. Thank you Mrs Luposello.

Toni Anne,
Your mom was such a lovely woman. I often think about all the times we spent together the fun we had when we were kids and all the amazing meals your mom cooked. She was such a pleasure to have around, with that infectious smile of hers. I have learned so much from her and will remember her always. All my love to you and I am truly sorry for your loss.

Mrs. Luposello was my 2nd grade teacher in the early 80’s. She most certainly had an impact on me and I’ve never forgotten her. My deepest thoughts, prayers and hope for her family.

If you look in a dictionary for what it means to be a great teacher, you will find Sarah's picture. She exemplified kindness and obvious love for all her students. She was thoughtful and creative. I lament that it was only our daughter who got to experience Mrs.Luposello and her Nutcracker each year(something we all looked forward to seeing), our son did not get the privilege. She was tireless. I hope she can rest now.
