Sarah was a dear friend and neighbor to our family for
Over 50 years. She and Ruth have always been the dearest, kindest friends to us. Sarah taught me piano lessons as a child. Ruth taught me golf and tennis when I was in college. These two ladies are the last of
Original neighbors to have built and lived in our
Neighborhood In the mid 1950s. Our family has been blessed to have shared their friendship and kindness
these many years. Sarah will be missed and remembered as a gentle, kind, lady.
