Sarah worked most of her life, from Sous Chef to Machine Operator. She would tell you though that her greatest job was that of being a nana to all of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a devoted Wife, Mother and Grandmother and friend to many in our community. She was a baseball fan, especially of the Yankees. She shared her passion for motorcycles with her husband, though gardening is where she found solace. Reading and gardening were a favorite pastime of hers. Her hobbies ranged from baking, gardening, reading, crocheting and she enjoyed spending as much time as possible with her grandchildren, Sarah devoted much of her time to the church and Ladies Auxiliary, where she volunteered when it was needed. She was an avid supporter of Wounded Warriors, Law enforcement as well as our active Military and all Military Vets. She often donated to the ASPCA.
