She loved her husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and other family members with a love that was abounding. She was always there for them with a prayer, a listening ear, a word of encouragement, a handwritten note, or a delicious dessert. They loved her and will miss her greatly. She was a world class wife, mother, friend and cook. For the better part of her life
she was extremely active. Sadge loved to golf, bowl, bake, sew, knit, and read. She delivered Meals on Wheels and was a volunteer at Clemson Downs for many years.
