Sarah M. Jones was born on June 18, 1932 to the union of Jimmie L. and Arlevia (Nelson) Reynolds. Sarah told her family she was tired of being sick and in pain. On Tuesday morning November 26, 2019, the Lord answered Sarah’s prayers and took her home to be with him. For this we are ever so thankful and grateful, for she is resting in the arms of our Heavenly Father, rejoicing.
