Born to the late Leroy and Ila Smith Jonas, she was a member of Bethlehem Baptist Church and was considered a great cook. She enjoyed sewing for her family and loved to travel, especially to the mountains. Working in her flowers was one of her favorite things to do. During her working career, Sadie was an inspector in the furniture industry.

Those left to cherish the memories of Sadie include a daughter, Annette Williams (David) of Bethlehem; two granddaughters, Tamara Bryant (Steven) of Bethlehem, and Cristal McKinney (Buddy) of Ellendale; a great-granddaughter, Sadie Lynn Bryant; a sister, Peggy Bumgarner of King; along with a number of nieces and nephews. Also remaining is a “special friend” and neighbor, Johnson L. Ritchie of Bethlehem.

The family would like to express a special heartfelt thank you to the caregivers at Trinity Village Nursing Home in Hickory.
