Mom worked at Levi Strauss, Furr’s Cafeteria and Tastee Freeze for eighteen years. Sarah enjoyed working in her yard, sewing, crocheting, working on puzzles, watching documentaries on monkeys, and she especially loved to read books.

The family would like to give a special “Thank You” to Agape Homecare, Roswell Lincare and Dr. Dake and Anderson Bethany Funeral Home for their help with our mom.
