Born in Ashland, Jan. 14, 1942, she attended Butler Elementary and High School and Empire Beauty School in Sunbury.
On July 9, 1960, she married her beloved husband and best friend, Ronald Melvin Feese, of Ranshaw, and together they had two children, Rhonda and Heather.
Sara worked as a seamstress at Shroyer's Dress Factory until returning to school for her cosmetology license. She opened her modest beauty salon, Hair Haven, where she not only made people look and feel beautiful, but opened her heart and home to them as well.
As a beautiful, loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend, Sara was a shining example of a woman who possessed amazing faith and perseverance. Her strong faith and unselfish love for her family and friends shined through her eyes and heart every moment of each day. She never complained, even though she faced many difficult times, and remained positive until her last breath. Sara is our "princess," our beautiful mom and wife, our best friend and hero in our eyes.
She enjoyed gardening and beautifying her home, making it her own little piece of paradise for all to enjoy. She also enjoyed the simple things in life such as attending local fairs, craft shows and firehouse dinners and found much pleasure in caring for her beloved Maltese dogs. She loved spending time with her family and enjoyed the activities of being a faithful servant of her God Jehovah.
Sara is survived by her husband of 53 years, Ronald Melvin Feese; daughters, Rhonda Quici and her husband, Terry, and Heather Kreider and her husband, Nathan; three sisters, Rosemary Dilliplane, Julia Stout and Byrdy Snyder, and two brothers, Jonathan Fedako Jr. and Phillip Fedako.
Sara was preceded in death by her father, Jonathan Fedako Sr., and mother, Ida Heim.
She will be dearly missed by all.
