  1. We are very saddened to learn of Sarah’s death. She was a wonderful lady. She was a best friend of my Mother, Lorraine Brown. Mother and Sarah played golf together until Mother was in her 80s. They so enjoyed each other’s company. Whenever Mother got out of the hospital and needed special care, she stayed with Sarah who provided great care and friendship. Also, Sarah was always more than willing to go to my parent’s home whenever they were not feeling well to provide her nursing expertise, give shots or do whatever they needed. We thought it was wonderful that her nephew and his wife invited Sarah to live with them when she was no longer able to live alone. All of the family remains in our thoughts and prayers; we pray that God will fill your hearts with all the special memories you shared and help to heal the sorrow you feel. Love, John and Beverly (Brown) Warner
