In Memoriam
Sarah  Vann
Sequoyah student  1960s

Edited from an e-mail from a reliable source. If you have information or a copy of Sarah's obituary, please send me a copy. 


March 29, 2004 ~  Sarah didn't graduate from Sequoyah. She left after her Freshman (1969) year, I think it was; so her picture wouldn't be in the annual book for that class.

     I knew Sarah for a long time. Not only did she attend Sequoyah, but she also attended Seneca Indian School where I met her. Several of her family members also attended Sequoyah. Her brother Thomas Vann was a sophomore in 1969, brother Jimmy Ray Vann was a junior in 1968. Sister Barbara Vann and another brother Steve Vann also attended Sequoyah, but I'm not really sure of the years.

       Sarah was diabetic and on disability for complications related to her diabetes. She was recently placed in a nursing home due to injuries that she suffered in a fall at home.

      Sarah was a friend of mine and I only wished that I had known she was having problems. This is such a sad way for a person to die. I do know that she had been saved and was living a Christian life. I doubt whether there will be an obituary in the Tahlequah paper.
