She was a lifelong member of Johnson Prairie Baptist Church, and the last original chartered member. She served the Lord in many capacities at the church such as Member and Treasurer of the WMU and Deaconess. She enjoyed quilting with church members and the church always honored her with a birthday dinner. Her husband Eli and herself made sure that all of their children were brought up and a part of the church. She also enjoyed gospel singing and just being with her church family. Sarah touched many lives over the years and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Eli ; stepdaughter Shirley Blossom Wing, grandsons Jimmy Lynn Sounders and Sidney Blossom; sisters Marie Kingfisher, Josephine Rabbit, Sally Osage, Molly Harrington and brothers Robert Williams and Frank Osage.
