Sarah started life in a loving home with two older brothers. Her education included graduation from Henderson High School in 1955 and an education in nursing with her Licensed Vocational Nursing or LVN degree in 1956. She was blessed with the love and marriage of her high school sweetheart, William Hays Fears and enjoyed 57 years of matrimony. God blessed her with a son and a daughter. As much as she loved her children her heart was full to bursting over the joys she expressed as she became a grandmother to the three busy, loud and loving grandchildren. And then an amazing thing happened as her heart grew again with the joy of a great grandson, Luke James Miller. She was also blessed with more than just a brother, Robert Irvin was her best friend, confidant and guardian angel.
