YARMOUTH – Sarah, who was born in Portland on January 29, 1968 and raised in Yarmouth, died on August 16, 2021.
She moved to western New York State where she obtained her Associate’s Degree in Performing Arts from Genesee Community College. She then ventured out to Southern California, where she started her family before returning to New York. From there she returned to Yarmouth, where she had always said her heart was.
Predeceased by her parents Catherine Johns and Richard Johns, Sarah leaves behind many friends and family who remember her remarkable creativity. She was well known for her whimsical knitted creatures and was often seen wearing a sweater she had made for herself. Sarah could light up a room with her infectious laughter and quick wit. To know her was to love her and to be loved by her. She had a surprisingly comprehensive vocabulary and was generally the smartest person in the room. She was always considerate of others and her kindness was limitless. She loved to collect shoes and was a fan of Star Wars.
Sarah is survived by her children Maggie Woodman (Abdo Abdelkarim) of Cheektowaga, NY and Will Woodman of Griswold Conn .; her sister, Liz vonFelten (Ken) of Rockport; her brother, Rick Johns of Nikiski, Alaska; a very special Aunt Margaret and Uncle Buzz from Manchester, NH; partner, Erik Weagle of Cumberland; and his beloved Beagle, Daisy. Sarah had a host of friends, too many to mention, whom she also considered family. These friends have been very helpful during this difficult time, especially Vinny Zink.
Sarah’s remembrance rally will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 28 at Lindquist Funeral Home, 1 Mayberry Lane, Yarmouth, followed by a reception at her place of work, Romeo’s Pizza in Yarmouth. Purple was Sarah’s favorite color, so feel free to wear purple for the occasion.
