Eugenia L. Sarratt
August 26, 1921 – June 10, 2018
A mother. A wife. A friend. A neighborly companion. Throughout her life, Eugenia fulfilled all of these roles and more. To me, she is my beloved grandmother. In a world that always seems to move too quickly, Grandma slowed things down. She taught me the importance of appreciating the small things and the importance of hard work. She was undeniably strong and brave. She was the type of woman who would give you the shirt off her back. She loved and cared for her entire family - from her daughter, to her grandkids, and even her great granddaughter. She always found the joy in things, but wouldn’t hesitate to stand up for those she loved. Grandma, who grew up during the Great Depression and sometimes went to bed hungry, never wanted her family to feel empty. She nourished our bellies, our minds, and our hearts – with her home-cooked meals, her wisdom, and her love. For many years, she worked as photo lab technician where she would develop pictures for maps. Some of these maps were made by a handsome young man, Derald Sarratt. These days it’s hard to find the kind of love that would last forever, but to them it came easy. It was love at first sight until the end. They spent their life full of love and laughter. It was my grandmother’s time. Knowing her, she would want us to remember that as people are plucked from this earth, new seeds are planted, and new flowers are forever blossoming. The regenerative cycle of life helps us grow; it keeps us grounded. Our world would be much different if Eugenia hadn’t been here. She was the best gift we could have received, and having surely gone to Heaven, she will continue to bless us with her generous spirit. Loved ones that cleared the path for Eugenia are her parents, Ada and Richard, and her loving husband, Derald Sarratt. Loved ones that will miss her until we meet again include her daughter Carol Sarratt, grandchildren Angelique, Colton, Gabrielle, and her great granddaughter Adrianna.

Jeanie also has a sweet little great granddaughter, Adrianna, who I am sure was the joy of her life. I haven't been with her near as much as the grandchildren but she is a cutie. Since we were friends, it was great that we were neighbors, and could play cards on cold snowy nights, a very short walk. You will always have a place in my heart Jeanie. I love you.

I have been a very good friend with Jeanie for many years. We have had many good times together, many card games, many great meals and we have also cried together. Joe and I attended several fun parties at their home, especially New Years eve. parties. In fact New Years Eve 1992 was the first time I met Jeanie. Our friendship has continued and I will always love her. I have been with her and Derald when Angie was born, Colton, and Gabbie. Also I have had many good times with her daughter , Carol , and her grandchildren.. My heart is hurting and I am sending prayers and love to each of you. Donna
