I have only know Sara for a few years through work at Oakview but I have grown to respect her and her knowledge of nursing and I could count on her to get things done when I talked to her about a concern about the patient/resident . I will miss you, rest in peace. Thoughts and prayer to her mom and her children through this difficult time.

Sara took care of my daughter before she started school. She loved her like she was her own daughter. She shared her joys and laughter with her children and Cat. She always had a new project or activity to share with them. She was so much fun to be with and watch the kids together at the end of the day.
She moved away for a few years, When they moved back, Danielle and Cat had instantly became friends not knowing that they knew each other in the past. Sara knew Cat right away.
The last few years she has given herself in taking care of so many people in the nursing home. One of those people she has lovingly served? My 102 year old Mother-in-law. I am so grateful for Sara. All her love and laughter she shared with everyone. Sara, you will always be in our hearts and our memories. Sweet peace until we meet again.

Sara was going to be our daughter-in-law. We fell in love with her the first time she came to visit us with Shane. We will miss her so much.
I met Sara at OakView Care when I came to pick up a patient for my work. Sadly I didn't get to know as well as you all did, but she instantly made me feel like we had known each other for years.
Sorry for your loss. Her positive energy with her patients will be missed.
Sending my condolences to her family and friends and the kids. Sarah was a wonderful caring women I remember when I had no where to go or stay she let me stay with her and took me in as if I was one of hers. She will never be forgotten ❤️
