Being the chief cashier at Walgreens in Iowa City for 42 years, she had never met a stranger. She was very much a people person who loved the people she got to meet every day and interact with and getting to hear their stories. Sara loved to read, often reading three or four books a week. She used to love to browse the secondhand shops looking for that perfect item. She would also enjoy trying her luck at the casino.
