Sara attended Santa Ana High School and later moved to Vernal, Utah where she attended school and became a pharmacy tech. She was blessed with 5 beautiful children, Arley, Timmy, Natalie, Joey, and Melody. Along with her children she had two special young men she adopted, Carl Carter and Theron Denson. One of the brightest highlights of Sara's life was being Nana and spending time with each one of her grandchildren. Sara had a contagious laugh, vivacious personality, and a kind heart that saw the best in everyone and never placed judgment upon anyone.
