August 19, 1931 – April 21, 2019
On Easter Sunday morning, April 21, 2019, Sarah went to be with Jesus! What a triumphant day to enter into heaven!
Sarah was born on August 19, 1931 in Alavus, Finland. She immigrated to Montreal, Canada in the early 1960’s and married Patrick Showers in 1962; they loved each other so much. After a brief stay in Calgary, they moved to Ladysmith, B.C. Sarah’s kindness and loveliness permeated to everyone she met. Everyone loved Sarah. Her smile and joyful attitude was infectious. She was a faithful and heavily involved congregant of Oceanview Community Church. Sarah loved the church and the church loved her. She loved Jesus more than anything and prayed diligently for everyone.
She will be missed. Sarah was predeceased by her husband in 2014. She is survived by her niece Tuija Hakola (Raimo) in Finland and her brother-in-law Joe Showers (Barbara).
A graveside service will be held at the Ladysmith Cemetery on Friday May 3rd at 11 am. A memorial service will be held at the Oceanview Community Church in Ladysmith on Saturday May 4th at 10:30 am. All are welcome.
