Sarah Kane Stevens
September 5, 1987-February 14, 2019
CHARLTON - Sarah Kane Stevens, 31, the most kind-hearted generous loyal person with an amazing sense of humor has passed away at the age of 31. Our lord tapped her on the shoulder and said it was her time to go. Sarah said “Lord, give me a few days to say my goodbyes and I’ll be more than happy to not be in pain anymore and come help you out in Heaven.” The lord said, “Sarah, does everything have to go your way?” Her reply was, “well, I know best.” He didn’t argue with her, it wouldn’t have done him any good anyway.
Sarah chose to pass on Valentine’s Day Thursday February 14, 2019, at St Vincent Hospital in Worcester, MA, due to complications from her life long battle with Arthritis and Lupus. Sarah never complained about her intense pain and never wanted anyone to feel bad for her. She always opened her door to anyone that needed a home and made sure that any child she knew had birthday and Christmas gifts, even when she had nothing for herself. Sarah loved a great road trip with loud music. Sarah had a passion for writing and drawing. Her family and friends are so thankful for the words of wisdom she has left behind for us all to learn from in her journals.
Sarah leaves behind her two young children. Izzabelle Rose Stevens and Isaiah Raymond Stevens whom she loved “to the moon and back.” They were the loves of her life. She was a protective Mother who made sure that her children’s security, safety and happiness were in place for their future.
Sarah leaves behind her mirror reflection, the most overprotective in your face mother anyone ever had, Ellen Stevens. Her father Cheyenne Stevens, AKA Chief Half Foot, who was, as Sarah said, “the only man she ever trusted and that never let her down.” Her sisters, Dorothy Stevens and Jill Stevens who she was incredibly proud of and took comfort knowing they were the best role models for her children. Also, her two nieces, Abigail and Amelia that brought her so much joy and happiness.
Sarah said she was blessed with the best God Parents in the world, her Auntie & Uncle: Richard and Dorothy Dixon. They showered her with love, kindness and inspiration her entire life. Sarah was so thankful for them. Sarah took great pride in her extended family of many aunts, uncles and cousins. She cherished every memory that was made with them. Sarah held an extra special spot in her heart for Sue Putis, Robin Carroll and their families.
Sarah was incredibly excited knowing she would be reunited with her Grandparents in Heaven. The late Henry Earl Stevens and Dorothy Kane Breckenridge, whom she was named after.
Through her unimaginable pain, Sarah always found time to wish us all a Blessed day. So, in that spirit Sarah’s family asks that in lieu of flowers or donations to a charity that you simply do something kind for someone today in her memory.
Sarah’s burial will be private with her family. A celebration of life will be held at a later time. Paradis-Givner Funeral Home in Oxford is directing the arrangements.
