Sarah August 29, 1929 - March 14, 2001

Sarah was born on August 29, 1929 and had four children, James, Jr., Mary Edna, Karen and Nannette. She had 11 grandchildren, 27 great grandchildren and 17 great great grandchildren who she loved very dearly. She lived in Logan Station, NC where she attended New Hope School and completed up to an 8 grade education but that never deterred her from being a life learner and a teacher to the children and adults in the community. She was a very caring and giving woman to all who were in need and found time to care for the elderly and those persons in the community with all types of needs regardless of who they were or what situation they found themselves in. She truly believed that it took a village to raise a child and would take the time to speak to any child she came in contact with and was admired by all who knew her. Her passion for life and the lives of young women was exhibited in her calling to mentor young girls and women on those essential areas of their lives that would help them become a quintessential woman, not only in the community but in the world.
