Sarah loved to travel with her family and photographed everything from A to Z wherever she went. She loved to read books and to keep a very detailed journal. Sarah was a very sweet and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and an endearing friend to all she met. She was gracious, warm and a joy to be with. She loved the color purple, flowers, and piecing together puzzles on the back porch. Although her health had been declining over the past few years, she still fought to her last breath to continue life. With her love of Jesus, she lives on, but will be deeply missed.
