Obituary of Sallyann Feyen Colistra

With heaven in view, Sallyann Feyen Colistra left this life on November 15th, 2023. Her dear husband Anthony and daughter Christina were by her side with her supporting family all nearby. 

Sally was a lifelong Rockland County resident, born in Nanuet and living most of her adult life in Stony Point a few blocks from her beloved twin Suzann Feyen Sullivan. She was a devout Catholic and her beliefs informed every area of her life. From the time she was a young woman Sally valiantly battled cancer on three separate occasions and those who knew her admired her heroic resolve to fight the disease and also to help those who similarly struggled. 

Sally had a successful career in retail before giving up that pursuit to spend more time with her family. She was a talented crafter, a great dancer and a lover of country music. 

She was beloved and leaves behind, in addition to Anthony and Christina, her siblings William Feyen, Victoria Saunders and Suzann Sullivan (Dan), sister in law Maria Rosada (Jerry) and nieces and nephews who would all assure you that they were her favorite (and they would be right). Her family and precious friends stood by her in her last battle and looked forward to her complete healing in heaven.
