Sarah was a retired school teacher having taught 31 years in Leland, NC. Her compassion toward others and a desire to make a difference in the lives of children led her to teach. Even after retirement she became involved in several volunteer groups whose mission was to help families build stronger relationships between the parents, grandparents and children.
Sarah loved life and being around people. She enjoyed working out with her many loving friends at the YMCA, her Thursday night meetings with the Grandparents Group, keeping her friends and family well informed of money-saving deals and spending special time with her beloved Anthony and Brendon.
Sarah is dearly loved. Her infectious laugh and sunny personality will be missed by many.

    Mrs. Lee was my 5th grade teacher at Leland Middle School. I'm 44 now, and I have nothing but fond memories of her. She was a truly caring person and the world was a better place because of her.
