After his death Sarah continued to devote herself to caring for others and to her dogs. Always mentally alert, she loved visiting with people and playing games such as Scrabble and the daily Jumble.
Sarah is survived by her brother Charles W. Hall and his wife Anne Harrington Hall of Houston and many fond nieces and nephews.

Hall, Jr. (Virginia "Gin"); Eleanor Hall Etheridge (Clark); Katherine "Kitty" Hall Arbuckle (Ernest); Mary Hall Carter (Robert "Bob"); John H. Hall (Marion), and sister-in-law, Mary Lou Watkins Hall.
