Sarah pursued a career in her passion: cosmetology. She went on not only to teach others at Valley Beauty School, but also to manage several local salons, including her own. Many people remember Sally as the first person to give them a haircut. In her free time, Sarah enjoyed an ice cold Pepsi, and enjoyed her Days of Our Lives on television. More than anything, she loved spending time with her grandchildren, who were her world. Sarah was affectionately known as Nana to many. She enjoyed carousels and carousel horses of all kinds. Sarah was a wonderful, kind woman who was loved by many and will be deeply missed.
