Many happy years were spent raising their two children, cultivating lifelong friendships, and devoting time to their family, especially their two precious granddaughters. They were avid fans of the Arkansas Razorback football team, where George served as co-captain of the team in 1951. Sara loved all of the dear ladies in her Bunko group and enjoyed playing with them for over 35 years.
She is survived by her son: Michael (Terri); granddaughters: Laura Williams Toney (Bryan) and Lee Anne Williams Bellamy (Derrick); great-grandchildren: Amanda and Breanna Toney, Mason, Luke and Keegan Bellamy; step-grandson: Chris Dorsett (Kellie); and son-in-law: Jim Dorsett; along with many nieces and nephews.
