Sara Johnson, age 59, entered eternal rest on Saturday, November 27, 2021, at the Harlan Appalachian Regional Hospital following a long illness. Sara had been a resident of the Tri-Cities Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Cumberland, KY.
Sara was a retired Security Officer for Security Unlimited in Las Vegas, Nevada. She believed in the Baptist faith and loved the television show, “The Golden Girls.” Sara was a joyful person with a big heart, after she became a resident, she thought of the staff as her family. She spoke how wonderful all the nurses, cna’s, and administrative staff were to her, always looking for ways to make her stay even better. Sara had a smile that would light up the dark and genuinely cared about the people in her life. She may have left this world to early but, her memories will be carried on forever.
