    Sarah Lynn Robinson

    Funeral Arranger

    Sarah Robinson has lived in our community since 1989 and began serving families as a funeral arranger in 2015. When her father passed away in 2001, she found herself called to this industry but did not pursue a position with a funeral home until 2013, at which time she took on an administrative role. With a passion for caring for others and a desire to make life easier on each family served, she quickly progressed to the position of funeral arranger. Providing peace for families during a stressful time comes full circle for Sarah, as she finds peace for herself while serving.

    Sarah takes great pride in her talent for photography and her time spent as a stay-at-home parent to her four children.
