Sarah (Sadie) was born October 12, 1932 in Watson, Saskatchewan to Charles and Catherine Gervais. She was one of 12 children.
After high school, Sadie decided to begin her journey to becoming an LPN. Her first nursing job was in Porqupine Planes Saskatchewan, and that is where she met the love of her life, Doug Leepart. They married December 9, 1952.
In 1953, Gloria was born. Followed by Raymond, in 1956, and Diane in 1961. In 1964, the family of 5 moved to the Glencarin area, where they planted their roots on a quaint family farm. Not long after, Sadie began working at the McCreary-Alonsa Health Centre. She continued to work there until her retirement.
Sadie and Doug retired from the farm in 2001 and moved to the Village of McCreary, where she resided until her passing. During her time in McCreary, Sadie became a very active community member by being involved in all sorts of services and boards. Through this community involvement, Sadie created bonds with many people and touched the hearts of each and every one of them. She became very close friends with a small group of women who shared the same interests as her, and they would often find themselves having the time of their lives. In her downtime, Sadie maintained a beautiful yard, which she enjoyed thoroughly. Every year, she had a wonderful display of Christmas lights for everyone in town to enjoy as they drove by. Sadie also very much enjoyed visits from her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Every time you would drive or walk by, you could expect a wave from Sadie. She had a warm smile and beautiful personality, and she will be dearly missed.
Sadie was predeceased by her daughter, Diane, in 1995, and her husband, Doug in 2009. She was also the last living member of her Gervais family. She is survived by her daughter, Gloria (Don), son, Raymond (Anne), grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind many special friends and other family.
In accordance with Sarah's wishes cremation has taken place and private family services will take place.
Should friends so desire, donations in memory of Sarah may be made to Charity of One's Choice.
The moment that you died, my heart was torn in two;
One side filled with heartache, the other died with you.
I often lie awake at night, when the world is fast asleep;
And take a walk down memory lane, with tears upon my cheeks.
Remembering you is easy, I do it every day;
But missing you is heartache, that never goes away.
I hold you tightly within my heart,
And there you will remain
Until the joyous day arrives,
That we will meet again.
