Sarah Frances Fowler (Adams) Timberlake (90), a devoted Christian and member of Dixie Valley Church of God, returned to her heavenly Father on March 28, 2018. She was born on January 1, 1928, at home on a farm in Hopkins County, KY, and attended a one-room school house until she began high school. Sarah and her first husband, Edward Franklin Adams, married in 1946 and had their beloved daughter, Jane Ellen, in 1957. After Edward died in 1965, Sarah moved with Jane to Louisville where she met Everett Paul Timberlake and married him 1968. Sarah originally worked as an office manager for a chiropractor, Dr. Hart, and then spent the rest of career working at Sears as a head cashier. In 2003, sometime after the death of Everett, Sarah moved to Taylorsville to be near her daughter. Jane and Sarah loved spending time together, and when Sarah was diagnosed with dementia, Jane lovingly cared for her mother until Jane died unexpectedly in 2015.
She was preceded in death by her daughter and both husbands. Also, preceding her in death were her parents, Gus and Helen Raines Fowler of Madisonville, her only brother Berl Fowler, and her sisters Thella Jackson, Mae Daley, Edith Thomas, and Jean Arnold Prow. Also, preceding Sarah in death were two of step-children, Donita Martine Jeffries, and Michael LeRoy Timberlake.
