Sara Elizabeth Trahey

Sara Elizabeth Trahey known to some in the Toms River community as "Goodie" was a beloved wife and mother, sister, daughter, friend, educator and so much more. A school librarian at Ella G Clarke elementary school in Lakewood, NJ who had an infectious love of reading that inspired her career path. A devoted mother who you would often find on the sidelines or coaching soccer and baseball games, volunteering at school events, or spending time near the water. She was always on the move planning the next fun family activity and as an avid adventurer regularly had her family out kayaking, camping, snowboarding, boating, crabbing, tubing, etc. Her infectious smile was constantly affixed to her face all while being able to razz you with a sarcastic joke. A free and wild spirit that had a powerful love for life, her family and friends. Saying she will be missed is an understatement but we know she is with us whenever we feel the cool breeze coming off the water and the warm sun shining on our face.

Sara is survived by her husband Jeffrey Trahey of Toms River, Daughter Casey 8, Jaxon 7, Riley 2; Parents K.C. Goodwin, Helen Goodwin, Father-in-law Jack Trahey, Mother-in-law Karen Trahey (Heller) Grandmother Lynn Jordan, Grandmothers-in-law Gladys Trahey and Elsie Heller, Sister Crystal Pepkowski (Goodwin), Brother-in-law Luke Pepkowski, Brother Thomas Goodwin, Sister-in-law Jackie Schaffer (Trahey), Brother-in-law Joe Schaffer, Brother-in-Law Shawn Trahey, Sister-in-law Jennifer Trahey and 6 nephews Conner 8, Cameron 6, Dean 6, Tyler 4, Grant 3, Cole 2 and so many other loving relatives.

What a good person. I am very lucky to have been able to grow up in the same neighborhood with her. I am so sad that this has happened. I hope that her family can find some form of peace in this.
