Great Aunt Sarah was more like our mawmaw (nana). Since our Grandma Beulah Yost her sister passed years ago....We loved her and adored her as often as we could. We soaked up all her wonderful knowledge of our wonderful Yost/Hendrix family history...even to the point she would get aggravated at us and tell us that was enough questions! We just couldn't get enough of her wonderful stories and loved her spunky attitude! We loved and laughed and lined danced with her all the way thru.... She is so missed . Our hearts are heavy with deep sorrow and sadness. We absolutely know she is having a ball in Heaven and enjoying the wonderful reunion with alllll of her family which includes our Grandmother Beulah along with a lot of others who we loved and she loved and have now met her in Heaven.. What a great time they must be having ! We will always remember her, think of her often and Love her till we all see each other again! God Bless you Aunt Sarah.. You were a one of a kind very special lady!

Sarah was a lovely lady , she and Andrew were the sweetest couple , a joy to visit anytime. Sarah was a wonderful example of a Christian woman , also it was a pleasure drive her to the senior center later in life , to tap dance , square dance much better at dancing than i was.
Sarah was an avid Church attender and will be missed by all.
An awesome cook , homemaker , best homemade biscuit.
My Love to all of the Family , Gods Blessing to each of you

Sarah was a spunky woman. I remember many weekend visits with her and Pawpaw. On one particular Sunday afternoon, we pulled up to boxes flying out of the door as Pawpaw ducked =D

I remember that she was a good person to talk to and she had group conversation meeting with certain people and I was one and Pat Kelley was the other employee and my mother helped.
But I am really sorry for what happened just remember not suffering or in pain either and I will keep you all in prayer.(Psalm 23)
