Sarah - Mama Sarah - as we knew her at Heritage Woods - was loved by everyone who knew her. In her role as Business Office Manager, Sarah was selfless in her service to residents and staff, helping sometimes without our even knowing. She was meticulous, dependable, loyal, and funny. Her work was always done on time and done to standard and above. She had an incredible sense of humor and loved playing a friendly prank on her co-workers. She was invested in her job, but especially in her family. Her sons and grandsons were her reason for living - that and camping. And her dream to one-day swim with dolphins. To know Sarah, was to treasure her. Yes, you knew you had to “toe the line,” but you also knew she had your back. We love you Sarah. We will miss you forever. Heritage Woods Residents & Staff
