DEATHS

HEARN, SARAH (SADIE) LUCILLE
After a courageous battle with cancer, with grace and dignity, mom passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her loving family on November 29th, 2007. Sarah was born in Goddenville, Newfoundland to her parents Annie and Reuben Higgins. She will be remembered for her caring and thoughtful manner, her sense of humour and passion for life, but most of all for her love of her soul mate Larry and her total devotion to her family. Sarah met and married the love of her life Larry and moved to Four Wing Germany where they honeymooned all over Europe while starting their family. They moved back to Canada where they made a few stops before settling their roots in Nova Scotia to raise their four kids. They would spend more than fifty-one happy years together. During that time, she worked many years in the K-Mart Pharmacy and made many friends, both young and old. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother and words cannot express how deeply she will be missed. Sarah is survived by her loving and devoted husband Larry, her daughters Colleen Clendenning (Dana), Fredericton NB; Donna Young (Ben), Hammonds Plains; her sons Derrick Hearn (Dianne), Hammonds Plains and Shawn Hearn (Joanne), Fredericton NB. As well, she has several grandchildren who miss her deeply: Erin, Patrick, Breanna, Chelsea, Mitchell, Ryan and Jason. Sarah and her family would also like to thank all of her close friends and acquaintances for their love and support throughout this difficult time. She is predeceased by her parents, her brother Wallace and sister Mina. Special thanks to the Oncology Unit and Palliative Care team at the QE II with appreciation to Dr. Virik and nurses Jill, Monica and Stephanie for your kindness.
