On June 20, 1992 she was united in marriage to Jim Wallace, her only love, and together they raised two wonderful children. As a Mother she never missed an event of her children, nieces, and nephews. Those times will always be remembered. Sara had a heart of gold and always put everyone's needs before her own. She delighted in the simple things in life.
