For the short time I knew her she put a lasting impression on me she was a beautiful soul
Dearest Jodi, Phil, Cory, and Kyle,
Please accept my sincere condolences on Sarah’s passing. She was an awesome mom, and grandma.
Sarah and I were Pool Pals in Sheman Arthritic Waterobics classes. We exercised our mouths just as much as our limbs. Sarah was a friend you could talk to about anything, and just pick up where you left off the next time. Loved her opinions, reflections, responses, and advice.
Sarah, as well as her mother, Frances, were loved and respected by so many of us from Gober. Sarah loved the Gober Cemetery and served on the Gober Cemetery Board for many years. I was so blessed to be a friend of this beloved lady.
