As a military wife, Sara traveled overseas to Germany, France and back to the USA to settle in Olar, SC.

She was an avid gardener, who loved flowers, canning, preserving, and sharing the bounty of her “green thumb.” She was a lifelong member of Memorial Baptist Church in Olar where she served as WMU Director, Junior Sunday School Teacher, the Church Social & Bereavement Committee, and a faithful Choir member. She was known for making Christmas fruit baskets for Homebound members. “A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies” (Proverbs 31:10).
