She worked as a licensed cosmetologist, owned Sally's Beauty Mart and was employed at Shroyer's Dress Company.
After her retirement, she began her career as companion and caregiver to her mother-in-law, Frances Holler, and her aunt, Cecilia Wargo, while caring for her own children. She eventually relocated to Brooksville, Fla., in 2003 to be closer to her children and grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by a brother, Frederick (Fritz) Granzow Jr., in 1996.
Sarah suffered gracefully, loved unconditionally, gave selflessly, believed unwaveringly and accepted her mortality joyfully. May all those she touched receive a fraction of the light of Christ that shines undistorted through her spirit and blesses everyone that ray falls upon.
