He was a famous news commentator on television”— her uncle wanted her to go to Huntington, West Virginia, and go to college. “But when I got there, school had already started,” Sarah said. “I didn’t want to sit around and wait until it started again. I wanted to work.”The industrious young Sarah went to secretarial school and got a job with GMAC. “But everywhere I went, I wanted family so I transferred back to Alabama, to Birmingham,” she said. “That’s where I met my husband, Wilber Jones.”Sarah Jones had two sons and a daughter. She lost both of her sons at a young age.“Life is sometimes hard,” she said. Hard work is often the way through sad and trying times. Sarah said she always worked hard. Work was often her refuge.“I enjoyed work,” she said. “It was good for me. I always worked, wanted to work.”Sarah worked at First Methodist Church in Birmingham until she was 70 years old.“I wasn’t ready to quit work but they told me I had to quit,” she said. “They said when you got to be 70, it was time to go home and sit down. I didn’t want to sit.”So, Sarah bought a computer and took a computer course. She entered the job market with a new set of skills. She was hired at Shades Mountain Baptist Church and worked there until she was 86 years old.“I was there on time and I did my job and I did it right,” she said with a smile.After retirement at age 86, Sarah remained active, going here and there with family and friends. She got her daily exercise going up and down stairs to her bedroom. “Then, I fell and broke my hip so I don’t go up the stairs anymore,” she said. “Now I sit.”Sarah may sit but she keeps an intense interest in her family and friends. She keeps active mentally and physically. “My body is God’s temple,” she said. “I’m not going to let my body get torn down so that I can’t serve my Lord.” Published 3:00 am Tuesday, September 27, 2016 You Might Like Morgan: Ruling should bring end to landfill litigation Coffee County Administrator Rod Morgan said the commission is gratified by a recent Alabama Supreme Court ruling and hopeful it… read more Book Nook to reopen Around the WebIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterHave an Enlarged Prostate?
