Sara graduated from Indiana University and loved the Hoosiers. She was a devoted 4th grade teacher at St. Stanislaus School and adored her students that she affectionately called "her babies." She loved a pool day with her cousins, spending time with her Nonny and Poppy, and anything related to the TV show Friends.
Sara's brave journey with cancer will be remembered with fearlessness and her incredibly mighty demeanor. Her parents, sister, family, friends, and pets meant the world to her. She constantly thought of their feelings and went above and beyond to make others smile. Sara is known for her strength, courage, and selflessness. Her grace is admirable.
A special thank you to Loyola University Medical Center, especially the lung transplant and pulmonary teams, for their continued dedication and true love they showed for Sara and her family.
