Sarah was a homemaker, who took pride in keeping a house so clean that you could “eat off the floor.” Her favorite thing to do was to take care of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, known to them as Granny Rie. She liked to sew, watch the Atlanta Braves, and was a big Alabama football fan. She had a giving heart and loved to help when she could. One of the things she liked to do was take up money when there was a death in the neighborhood, going to Ferguson’s, and picking out flowers for the funeral from the neighbors. She will be missed by all.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Almous A. Elliott, Jr.; son, Donny Mack Elliott; parents, Raymond R Simmons and Louise Simmons; sister, Dorothy Ward; and brother, Jerry Simmons. She is survived by her daughters, Cindy Hulsey (Hoyt) and Julie Gaskins (Dean); grandchildren, Lauren Gaskins and Chris Gaskins (RyAnne); great-grandchildren, Daniel Gaskins and Jett Gaskins; sister, Janie Chapman; and sister-in-law, Barbara Swader.
Pallbearers will be Tony Skala, Hoyt Hulsey, Dean Gaskins, and Chris Gaskins. Honorary pallbearers will be Daniel and Jett Gaskins.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Reiland and to the amazing team from Encompass Healthcare, especially Brandon, Jamie, Kelly, Tanya, and Chaplain Dave.
