"OK so anyhow … "
The world lost a strong and independent woman on July 23, 2017, when Sarah E. Gore went to be with our Heavenly Father. Sarah was born on Jan. 22, 1941, in Los Angeles, Calif., where she grew up in Compton with her parents and three older sisters. Sarah moved to Anchorage, Alaska, in 1971, where she fell in love with the lifestyle. She met the love of her life, Robert W. "Bob" Gore (deceased), when he was an Anchorage Police Officer, and together they raised her five children. Sarah and Bob lived in Chickaloon, Alaska, at Castle Mountain, with the three youngest, adding on to an existing cabin and living the rugged life. Eventually they moved back into Anchorage, where Sarah worked many years for the State of Alaska, first in data processing and then for the School District in Facilities. After retirement, she bought a small motor home and enjoyed driving to the Lower 48 to visit children and grandchildren. She made several trips "Outside" to visit Bob's siblings and had many friends. She never met a stranger and could talk your ear off. Sarah also enjoyed oil painting in her retirement and several of us have those permanent reminders of her. She said she couldn't draw but could "move color around" and even became an oil painting instructor. She signed her paintings "G2" for Grandma Gore.
Sarah is survived by four children: Kathie (Ron) Manning of Salt Lake City, Utah, Susan (Mark) Stanley of Broomfield, Colo., Robert (Sheila) Gore of Anchorage and Rebecca Lynn Goreof Anchorage. Her daughter, O. Lorena "Lorie" (Tim) Lammers of Anchorage, predeceased her. Sarah also loved several foster children in her lifetime, including, Elaine (Skip) Wilson of Klamath, Calif., Cynde (Terry) Horan of Clearwater, Fla., and many others whose lives she influenced. She was a giving and caring person.
Sarah leaves behind 12 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, ranging in age from 15 to newborn. They all called her "GGma."
Please join us as we celebrate Sarah's life on Aug. 17, 2017, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Fox Hollow Chalet, 11701 Brayton Drive, Anchorage, AK 99516. There will be a buffet and open mic, where we will reminisce and do what Sarah loved most, telling stories. Interment will follow on Aug. 18, 2017, where the family will lay her to rest at the Fort Richardson National Cemetery with Bob Gore.
