Sarah Lee Copeland, of Akron, Ohio, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Sunday, March 16, 2014, at the Lorantffy Care Center.

Sarah was born on September 28, 1926, in Greenwood, South Carolina to Rufus and Lottie Davis. Sarah was the loving wife of Rev. Alvin Copeland, Sr., and mother of twins, Alvin Copeland Jr., and Welvin Copeland.

Her life was highlighted by a lifestyle as a business entrepreneur, and public speaker. She had a flare for gardening and was a life-long learner of personal improvement, career development strategies and biblical studies. She exemplified the love of God as she became the long term care-giver to her husband, Rev. Alvin Copeland, Sr. She accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior early in her life. In addition, and along with her husband, was fully engaged for many years in the spreading of the gospel message through direct mailings, newsletters, and cassette tapes.
