Dear Bill and family, Sarah emulated kindness in a humble spirit. The light of the Lord shone through her. With deepest sympathy as we remember Sarah. God bless. Diane

Sarah was a wonderful woman with a radiating spirit. I knew Sarah from church for many years. She was my Sunday school teacher growing up and always had an active presence in the community. She will be greatly missed and my thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

I met Sarah after joining the Warwick Art League over 10 years ago. I enjoyed watching her paint during our weekly sessions at the Senior Center. She was compassionate, generous, hard working, soft spoken and very knowledgeable about art. Most recently, her work was chosen for the cover of the WVT/Alteva directory, and I photographed the painting of what is now Rabbit Run Farm to send to them for printing. The book should be out shortly - a bit late for Sarah to see, but she’ll be looking on from Heaven. May she rest in peace. My sincerest condolences to you, her loving family.

I am so sorry to hear of Sarah‘s passing. Her gentle soul will live on in our memories. From the day we met in our little neighborhood in 1973 to the recent times we would meet in passing around town, Sarah was truly a friend.
