Searight, Sara 1858-1911

Obituary – Mrs. Sara Searight
East Liverpool Tribune

Mrs. Sara Searight, aged 53 years, wife of Samuel Searight and one of East End’s most prominent and highly esteemed ladies, answered to the summons of death at her late home on St. George street, at 2:45 o’clock yesterday morning (July 30, 1911), following an illness of several weeks.

Deceased was born at Lacross, Nebraska, February 3, 1858, and was married in that city to Edward Riley in 1882. A year later the couple removed to this city. Several years following the death of Mr. Riley, deceased married Samuel Searight, who survives her. Mrs. Searight was a member and faithful worker of the Second Presbyterian church, and found one of her greatest pleasures in life in looking after the sick and needy. Her kind and pleasing way won for her friends on all sides and her death will bring sorrow into many a home where her presence has brought sunshine and happiness.

Besides her husband, deceased is survived by two brothers, one in Oregon and the other in Wisconsin, and two sisters, one in Washington state and the other, Mrs. F. F. Desmud of Wisconsin, who with her husband arrived in time to be at the bedside of Mrs. Searight when death came.

Funeral services over the remains will be held from the Second Presbyterian church at 10 o’clock Tuesday morning, the pastor, Rev. L. B. Lewellyn, officiating. Interment will be made in the Riverview cemetery.

Friends may view the remains between the hours of 7 and 10 this evening.
