Sarah M. Wycoff, 61, of Delaware, died early Friday morning (Oct. 7, 2011) at Grady Memorial Hospital.
She was born March 25, 1950 in Delaware to the late Arvin and Iva (Morris) Thomas. She was a lifelong Delaware resident and homemaker. She was an auxiliary member of AMVets Post 104 and Delaware Moose Lodge. She married her childhood sweetheart and beloved husband of 40 years, Dallas Wycoff, who was her world and best friend. Together they raised a loving family and experienced both the joys and tribulations of life. Dallas passed away in 2006, when her world forever changed. She was always caring and thoughtful. She was also very compassionate and strong-willed. She loved all children, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed being surrounded by her family and watching game shows. Simply put, her family described her as “awesome.”
