She participated proudly in Sweet Adeline’s International, the Houston Horizon Chorus numerous church choirs. She also was an interpreter for the deaf.  While giving her all for singing, she established and maintained numerous friendships with others, especially those close friends with a musical background that Sara considered her Texas Family.
