She also worked at Eatons Elementary, retiring in 1995 after 20 years.
Sara was a member of Oral Baptist Church where she served as WMU director, choir member, (she loved to sing), and helped where ever she was needed. She was a prolific writer of poems and stories about childhood and occasions that made the people in them feel special and loved. She was a great cook and her hospitality was well known. Sara lived this last year at LaFollette Health and Rehabilitation and the family greatly appreciates the care they have given. Not enough can be said about Sara, we have suffered a great loss, and Heaven has gained a star.
