Sharyn V. Konte, 73 of Manlius passed away peacefully on Thursday January 24. She was born on November 15, 1945 in Little Rock, AR, the daughter of the late Howard and Irene Vellella. Sharyn spent much of her childhood travelling both in the United States and overseas. Sharyn graduated from Garfield Heights High School. She later earned her Bachelor's degree from Cleveland State University and her Masters from the University of Pittsburgh. She worked many years with the deaf. Sharyn worked at the Rochester School for the Deaf, National Technical Institute for the Deaf, and Pressley Ridge.

Sharyn enjoyed spending time with her family especially her beloved grandchildren. She always loved reading a good book. Sharyn also had special gift for gardening, which brought beauty to the world around her. She was very generous; sharing love and compassion with everyone she met.

Sharyn spent many years in Pittsburgh, PA. In 2007, she moved to Central New York to be closer to her daughter and grandchildren and share priceless love, experiences and family events. We are honored to have her spirit live on with us through her cat Sonni who brought her much love and comfort through these past few years.

Surviving are her daughter; Stacey (Keith) Thomas (nee Konte); grandchildren; Emily and Alex Thomas; cat Sonni brothers, James (Cindy) and Steve (Debbie) Vellella.

Calling hours will be on Wednesday January 30th from 5-7 p.m. at the Newell-Fay Manlius Chapel, 8171 Cazenovia Rd. Manlius. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Thursday January 31th at 11:00 a.m. at St. Ann’s Church, 104 Academy St. Manlius.

I am so sorry to learn that Sharyn has passed away... I worked with Sharyn when she was employed at the Center On Deafness at the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf here in Pittsburgh. We became close friends, and remained in touch after she moved to New York state. I had not talked with her in quite a while, and noticed that there was no recent activity on her Facebook page, so I did an Internet search and found the obituary... Rest in peace, my dear, dear friend...

Stacey and family,
I am so saddened by Sharyn passing. She was a special lady. I got to know when I used to take her to her Drs. appts, Dr. Durgin and our costs when she was in the nursing home. I had planned to come to calling hours tonight but the extreme cold prevents me from going out (.COPD). Test in peace, MY friend.
