Sarah was born in St. Lawrence. She attended Littledale College and became a teacher. Her first teaching position was at Little St. Lawrence all grade school.

Later she moved to Lawn, married, and had a family, and continued to pursue the teaching profession. Many remember her from their school days. Some have shared stories of her as a compassionate person who nurtured them in their pursuit of learning.

She was a woman of faith who organized parish activities such as First Communion and Confirmation events. She liked to be in charge and was a dedicated volunteer with any fundraising activities for her church and the GOLDEN AGE Club. For relaxation she enjoyed bingo and card games. In her private time, she liked to read, watch documentary TV, and follow the world news. Her joys were her grandchildren and a nice cup of tea and a chat.

Thanks to the Burin Peninsula Health Care Centre staff who cared for mom from January to April. Also special thanks to staff of the Blue Crest Home, Grand Bank where she spent most of May. And finally thanks to the staff of the U.S.M.H.C. Long Term Care Unit at St. Lawrence, where she spent the last period of her life.

In Sarah’s memory donations may be made to Holy Name of Jesus Roman Catholic Church, Lawn or flowers gratefully accepted.
