Sarah Rosalind Lamb Isaak, 76, passed away peacefully on August 26, 2018. She was born on April 29, 1942, the youngest child of Emmett and Margaret (Kluger) Lamb's four daughters. She grew up in Golden Hill in Indianapolis and was a member of First Friends Meeting (Quaker) for many years. Sarah attended Shortridge High School and graduated from Tudor Hall in 1959. She was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority at Southern Methodist University before transferring to Northwestern University and graduating in 1963 with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology.

She was a Registered Nurse at St. Francis Hospital for 14 years.

Sarah was high spirited, and her enthusiasm and infectious laugh were contagious. Her black eyes sparkled whenever she smiled. Her love for her dogs was the center of her life, but she was also passionate about traveling with her sister, Emilie, fishing at her home on Paradise Lake and working in her garden with her beautiful flowers, especially roses. Sarah had a deep faith and lived life her way to the very end.

Survivors include: sisters; Suzanne Holder(George) of Menlo Park, CA, Judith Doninger(Clarence) of Indianapolis, IN; nieces, Sylvia Hood (Michael) of Dallas, TX, Victoria Ubben (Joe) of Wanatah, IN, and Gretchen Doninger(David Victorson) of Evanston, IL; nephews Eric Doninger(former wife Michelle Staggs) of Louisville, KY and Samuel Massette (Melinda) of Porter IN. She is also survived by 5 great-nieces and 4 great-nephews.

Miss Judy, sending prayers for peace, lots of love, and hopes for memories that leave you with a chuckle and a smile. Oh, I will always remember the magic of "Judy" ....regardless of the day, just the mention of your name brought a feeling of tranquility to the room (--even if only briefly!), the sweetest smile, and a look of pure adoration to Sarah's face and now, memories of the two of you will always bring the same to mine.
