Sarah James Obituary

   Sarah Elizabeth (Sneed) James, age 84 of Mocksville, North Carolina passed away on Monday, October 16, 2023.

   Sarah was born in Yadkin County, North Carolina on February 26, 1939.  She was the daughter of the late Andrew Jackson Sneed and Liza Jane (Branock) Sneed.  In addition to her mother and father, Sarah was preceded in death by a son Richard James, three brothers Paul, Arthur, and Howard Sneed, and two sisters Mary Vanhoy and Karrie Mae Reece.

   In life, Sarah graduated from Yadkin High School with the class of 1958.  She chose a career in the upholstery industry where she was a professional seamstress for over 50 years, until she finally retired from working with her daughters at Twins Upholstery.  She had a four-year commercial art degree and throughout her life made landscapes, portraits, and more come alive in multiple mediums.  She loved to read, cook, tend to her animals, and took care to make sure her family never needed for anything.

   Sarah leaves behind to cherish her memory, a son Jimmy Ray James of Mocksville, two daughters Michelle Lynn Brown (Andrew) of Mocksville, and Lichelle Diana Boose of Mocksville, two brothers Floyd (Jane) of Cleveland, NC, and James of Mt. Airy, NC, plus three sisters Linda of Yadkinville, NC, Pam of Mocksville, and Debbie of Mocksville.  Also surviving Sarah are her six grandchildren Samantha, Jessica, Abigail, Brittany, Beau, and Eric, and ten great-grandchildren Preston, Bennett, Henry, Hazel, Addison, Oliver, Theodore, Avery, Audrey, and Adeline.

   On Thursday, October 19, a visitation and memorial service was held at Davie Funeral Service of Mocksville.   Andrew Brown officiated the service.
