She loved being a mother. She cherished being a wife to Art.
She enjoyed being a good friend to many. Sarah was a "Firecracker" when it came to issues close to her heart. She was a longtime member of the Bethel CT Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses and leaves behind many friends there.
Sarah recently resided at Newtown Rehab and Healthcare Center with her husband until his death. We thank them immensely for the care they showed them both. Being as we weren't allowed to visit our mom because of Covid19, it helped knowing she was cared for by our friends there.
Because of the current health concerns, a memorial service will be held at the convenience of her family.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice.

Sarah was always so friendly and kind to me. When I first met her I was a young girl coming to the meetings and studying the Bible. I had severe anxiety in crowds. She and Art made me feel so comfortable and welcome. I will always remember her for that.
Later when I had Megan her loving suggestions really helped me. She was a terrific mother and I really appreciated her kindness and humor.
Her amazing laugh and beautiful smile are what I will remember most! I feel privileged to have known her and will rejoice when she is reunited with Art and enjoying life forever in a world with no sickness, suffering or death.

Sarah, my best friend. We met on Willow Street in 1974 and developed a unique and warm friendship that lasted over 46 years! We shared great conversations over Mr. Donut coffee and watched together as our kids grew up before our eyes. You were the sister I always wanted and my heart is broken that I never got a chance to hug you or say goodbye (due to covid 19 lockdown). Sarah, I will miss you and Art (the love of your life) forever! Rest In Peace. Love, Sandy

My earliest memories are of Art, Sarah and their family. The thing that stood out in my mind was their hospitality and their love of children. I still remember how much fun I would have and how special they made me feel as a small child when our family would join them for cookouts and other gatherings at their house. Sarah and all of the Crowells hold a special place in my heart and I look forward to seeing her again soon together with Art.
