After raising her children, Sara began to work in retail. Sara arrived in Newnan in the 1970's as manager of the Diana Shop. She was a natural at retail and her wide open personality made her excellent for the job. If a young lady was looking for a dress or a man looking to surprise his wife, she could pick out the perfect outfit. She was known by a lot of customers as "Ms Diana."
