Obituary for Sarah Deane Barlow

Sarah Deane (Blair) Barlow was born July 30, 1938, in Glen Dale, WV. She graduated from Bethany College and shared her love of music throughout her career as a junior high school music teacher and choral director. Following her move to Delaware, she continued to bless children as a special education teacher before retiring in 2000 to spend time with her beloved grandchildren and family. She was a member of Asbury United Church in Smyrna where she shared her gifts and talents through the chancel and bell choirs, and served as the chairperson for the scholarship committee. Her greatest gift was the love she had for family and friends. Regardless if she had known you for a lifetime or for a few minutes, she loved everyone as God loved her.
Sarah Deane passed away peacefully surrounded by family at her home on Sunday, September 1, 2019. In addition to her parents, Deane and Dorothy Blair, she was preceded in death by her husband, John Barlow and her sister-in-law, Cathy Blair.
