She started her career at Brian’s Store moving onto Canada Car and then retiring from Sears Canada after 20+ years of dedicated service. Sara took great pride in welcoming everyone into her home and delighted in hosting and entertaining. Her love of family and friends shone through her cooking. Her many passions over the years included searching for good recipes, cooking, gardening and vacationing with family and friends. Blessed with many longtime friends, she enjoyed their weekend excursions away with them, getting together for game nights and celebrating many milestones over the years. Foremost Sara was a devoted and loving wife, mother, Nona, sister and aunt. Her boys and grandsons meant the world to her and their well-being was always a priority, she took comfort in their happiness.
