Sarah was a professional homemaker that loved her family and friends. She loved life, and was always amazed by the living of it. She loved cooking(best potato salad,clam chowder, and cornbread sticks in the world); entertaining; gardening(both flowers and vegetables); music(from classical to beach music); art; collecting antiques and furniture; travel(she prayed over her geography book in 4th grade that God would let her see all those places and He did); Sunset Harbor and family there; boats and fishing; picnics; Florida (living in Orange Park on the Saint Johns River, fishing in Sarasota during Christmas Holidays, tenting at Key West, or sleeping in the car at Cape Canaveral with grandchildren to watch the space ship launch); the Lord and Her Church,( Advent Moravian Church in Winston-Salem, Grace Moravian Church in Mt Airy, and Home Moravian Church in Salem( and her family’s history there)). She and Lee were sojourners of the world, and loved and enjoyed everyone they met; but Winston-Salem was always home. We will miss Sarah’s strength, her determination, and laughter.
