Sarah (Sadie) Hudson Jarvis passed away peacefully at her home December 5, 2011 surrounded by the love of her family.
Sadie was born December 18, 1920 in Santaquin to William, Jr. and Prudence Harriet Coombs Hudson. She married Glen R. Jarvis March 29, 1941. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple.
Glen and Sadie were blessed with five children; Robert (Sandy) Jarvis, Wheeling, West Virginia, Sherrie (Joe) Wood, Salt Lake, Bart (Brenda) Jarvis, Mona, Judy (Robert Jr.) Gonzales, Santaquin, Coy (Howard) Morgan, Goshen. The blessings continued with 15 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren. Her family will be blessed soon with the arrival of a great great grandson. Sadie is also survived by her sister, Mary Roberts. She was preceded in death by her husband, grandsons Sheldon Morgan and Tyler Jarvis, 5 brothers and 3 sisters.
Sadie attended school in Santaquin and graduated from Payson High. She was a member of the high school marching band and loved playing the trumpet. Her musical talents included the piano, singing and chorister.
Sadie was a devoted and dedicated member of the LDS church. She served as Relief Society President, Temple Worker and served with Glen on a mission to So. Carolina. Her greatest calling was being a homemaker.
Her family was the love of her life. Her home was always filled with friendship and love. Sadie was a great cook. Her homemade bread and rolls were the best. She will always be remembered for her beautiful yard, flowers and garden. We all remember her riding her lawn mower around her yard, wearing one of Glen R.'s hats to cover up her hair. Her kitchen was the best place to set up the quilting frames. Sadie loved to make quilts and give them to her family friends.
We can't forget the sign hanging from the telephone pole in front of her house - Nite Crawlers $.75 doz. Sadie was a fisherman and many family memories and many friends have been made because of her love to fish.
Sweet little Sadie, you are so loved and will be missed each and every day. But the love and friendship you shared with all and the wonderful memories we have will surround us and comfort us, just like your specially made quilts.
Sadie was so appreciative of the love and tender care she received during her time of need. A special thanks goes to all family and friends who love and cared for her.
Family and friends are invited to gather at the Holladay-Brown Funeral Home, 66 South 300 East, Santaquin, on Monday, Dec. 12th from 11:30 to 12:30. Graveside services will follow at the Santaquin City Cemetery at 1:00 pm.
