Sarah was born in Peterborough, Ontario and grew up in a loving family that had to overcome many challenges after the premature death of her father. After graduating high school and working in Toronto for two years Sarah travelled to Saskatchewan to attend Canadian Bible College. Sarah graduated four years later with a (BRE), bachelor degree in religious education and with a (MRS), a marriage certificate as she joined her heart with Kim in marriage. Sarah served faithfully at her husband's side in churches in Toronto and Mississauga. She travelled abroad with three preschool boys in tow to serve as a missionary in the country of Pakistan for seven years. While in Pakistan she gave birth to her daughter Mary. Upon returning to Canada Sarah took up pastor wife duties once again as Kim pastored the Evangelical Free Church in Erskine, Alberta for nine years. Sarah became involved in her children's many activities which led her to volunteer many hours at the school and in the community. In 2005 Sarah followed her husband's career one more time to the Evangelical Free Church in Wainwright. Only three months after arriving to take up duties in Wainwright Sarah began her journey with cancer. She faced it like she faced all challenges in her life by putting her faith in God. From surgery to chemo treatments to the end Sarah was a testimony of contentment with her lot in life, peace with God and an inspiration to her family and all who walked with her in this journey. Sarah loved much and was loved much. Sarah's journey continues apart from us but present with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
