Obituary of Sarah Blythe
Sarah Joan Blythe (nee Kelley), age 68 of Little Elm, Texas and formerly of Florissant, Missouri, passed peacefully at her home on Saturday, December 12, 2020. She was born on June 28, 1952, in Sikeston, Missouri, the oldest of three children of the late Benny Joe Kelley and the late Sarah Christine Kelley (nee Link). Sarah was the beloved mother of Amanda (Chy'anne) Krugler, Anita (Chuck) Shunk, Andrea Blythe, and Angela Blythe (Jason Hiam); dear grandmother of Jared, Teresa, Damien, Gregory, Thomas, Matthew, Evangeline, Rosalie, Helen, Nathaniel, and Samantha; dear sister of Brenda (Steve) Klingsick and Bennie J. (Judy) Kelley, Jr.; dear sister-in-law, aunt, cousin and friend. Sarah was an avid baseball fan cheering for both the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals, but her favorite teams featured her grandchildren. She attended hundreds of games to cheer them on. Sarah sewed beautiful clothing for her grandchildren and enjoyed crafting and crocheting. She loved to read and remained active up until her death. Sarah defied stereotypes to begin a career in IT in her forties and this year marked her twentieth year at Fiserv.
