Sara was from the beautiful island paradise of Puerto Rico, where she met her husband, Elicier. The Army took them to many places. Together, they had three children, Erika, Michel, and Nicol, and eventually settled in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Sara loved spending time in the kitchen, creating delicious meals for her family, and baking and decorating cakes. She enjoyed volleyball, softball, bowling, solitaire, watching her favorite TV shows, and listening to Latin music. She devoted much of her time to volunteering at her daughters’ schools, teaching Sunday school, and coaching softball and bowling. Her pleasant personality and beautiful smile were contagious to everyone she met.
Sara is survived by her husband, Elicier; her daughters, Erika and Michel; her five grandchildren, Eric Antonio, Omar, Mia, Jaxson, and Michael; a sister, Luz Celenia; a brother, Juan Jose; her mother, Justina; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
