Though small in stature Sara was a courageous woman capable of taking on the hard work required of pioneering in western Canada. Being married to an Ältester added to her responsibilities as his duties frequently called him away from home. In 1919 Sara’s husband died and less then a year later she also lost her mother. Despite such hardships Sara persevered. She raised her children on her own, teaching them to be hardworking, orderly and hospitable. She also sought to nurture their faith through reading the Bible, prayer and personal example. Sara continued farming with the help of her family until retiring in 1931. In 1948 Sara moved to Mexico with four of her married daughters and their families where she lived until her death on 10 February 1951. The legacy of her example was an inspiration.
