Sara Louise (Shaffer) Dishong, 72, passed away Wednesday, April 13, 2016, at her home surrounded by her family.
She was born Dec. 28, 1943, a daughter of the late Howard and Beryl Shaffer. Sara was a 1961 graduate of Brockway Area High School.
Sara was married to the late Donald Dishong for 48 years. During the course of their marriage, they raised six children and opened their home to 34 foster children. Sara dedicated her life to serving God and caring for those less fortunate. She traveled to Honduras with her husband through the World Gospel Mission where they contributed to rebuilding places of worship and sharing the word of Christ. Her gentle spirit and giving nature made her a natural mother figure for all who knew her. Sara enjoyed spending time with family and friends, attending church and working in her yard.
