I would love to have known Sarah better. She was always so sweet and caring. From the stories I heard from Dianne, I know how much she loved her family. She was always so active and full of energy and always wanting to be on the go. There is one thing I do want to know, what is Wahoo?

Your sweet message means so much to all of us. Mother always loved hearing that you asked after her. I’m not quite sure that she meant to be so surprised at your two beautiful white Labs bounding over to greet her that one afternoon but she recovered immediately once she knew they were just sweet pups Jake & Harley and she often mentioned them with a smile.
Wahoo Board Game. Well I’ll just say she was a second generation champion at it , loved to play a game well into the night and learned from the best, her own Mother, Anita and all her siblings play ferociously well. It was Mom’s favorite game, maybe Dominos was second, love the memory of seeing her smile at the dining room/ gaming table.

Aunt Sarah had a beautiful laugh and smile and did both often when she was around her loving family. Sarah loved her family deeply and would do anything for them, and would always be the first to lend a helping hand. I had the honor of growing up and loving aunt Sarah and being apart of her world through my loving grandmother Naomi Hunt. My nanny Naomi and Sarah were always so close, and set such a great example of how family treats each other. My mother Cindy Streater grew up so close with Sarah and her siblings, as they were all growing up, getting married and having kids at the same time. My mom and our family always had so much respect for Sarah and brother Bill as they were the senior siblings. Sarah’s love for her family will never be gone, her love will always live on in our hearts.
