Not sure what to say?

One of the best teachers I ever had she talked to her students on their level. Sorry about her passing but she lived a long enjoyable life. RIP Miss Hess

The Hess family and Kline family go way back. I remember visiting the Hess farm with my grandparent when I was a young child. I had Sara in school and loved her as a teacher and a friend of the family. She lived a good long life and touched so many during her time here on earth. Rest in Peace Sara

Visiting Sara on behalf of the Centre County Association of School Retirees, though infrequent, ware always enjoyable experiences. She made others feel comfortable, was free with her opinions and demonstrated a keen sense of humor.

We shall miss her.

I have worked at Foxdale Village for 27 years and have known Sara all of those years. Being a fellow farmer, Sara and I spoke often about her upbringing and my farm life, and the similarities and differences of then-farming and now-farming. It was an honor to know her, and I will miss her. Condolences to her family.
