a faithful servant of the Lord, has peacefully passed away. She joins her husband Francis, son David and her parents and brothers. She leaves behind a treasured brother, James (Mark) and a loving family including children: Debbie (Roger), Francis, Cathy (Jeff), Lisa (Jayne), Julie and four grandsons and two great-grandsons. Sarah also leaves behind many gracious relatives and friends, including her cousin, Betty. Her sweet dogs Max and Mowgli, will also miss Sarah.

She loved Mass, Theresian meetings, Coca-Cola and watching news.
