Sarah Jane (Elliott) Davis, 92, of Cresaptown, on her beloved Brant Road, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2019.
Born on Oct. 15, 1926, in Cresaptown, she was the daughter of the late Robert E. and Estella Esther (Duckworth) Elliott.

Sarah Jane never met a stranger, constantly had a smile on her face, always had something nice or funny to say, and had a very generous heart. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend.
