I am so honored to have had many wonderful moments with her and I will cherish those. I pray God embraces her loved ones as He welcomes another angel home. Thank you for sharing her with me.

I am very saddened to hear of Sarah’s passing. I was the receptionist at one of her doctors offices. She was always so sweet, happy and kind. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. To her son Kurt, thank you for always be kind. I know you loved your mother with all of your heart. She was a very special lady.

Sarah has been a good friend for many years. We met when we were both teaching at Johnson Elem. School. I was a new teacher and I was in awe of her. She loved to teach children to read and did an outstanding job. When I asked her "How" she gave me a simple but wonderful answer: Find where the children are-not where they are supposed to be-and start there. I am so thankful that I met her. She was so Kind. I know that she will be missed. May God comfort you. Janice Greco

My deepest sympathy to the McKee family. My Mom, Lydia Johnson Ritter and Sarah were close friends for much of their lives. Mom loved Sarah and we so appreciated the stories Sarah recounted of their younger days at Mom’s burial in 2017. Sarah was a special lady, she was so positive and such delight to be around. It was not long ago that Hugh went to be with the Lord-I am sure Sarah received a wonderful reception from Hugh and my Mom and Dad.
