Sara A. Arment

Sara A. Arment, 76, of Muddy Creek Township, passed away at the VNA Inpatient Hospice in Butler Township on Tuesday, December 4, 2018.

Born in Muddy Creek Township on September 3, 1942, Sara was the daughter of the late Norman and Doris Scheidemantle Workley.  Sara moved to Morrisville, Pennsylvania in her teens and later she raised her own family there before they moved to Lancaster County.  Sara worked as a secretary at several different trucking companies over the years.  A loving mother and grandmother, Sara enjoyed spending her free time with family.  She enjoyed baking, cooking, gardening and had an affinity for watching the cardinals outside in the yard.  In 2000, Sara moved back to Muddy Creek Township from Lancaster County, but she still kept in touch with all of her Lancaster friends.  Sara will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Sara is survived by her children, Elizabeth McMullen and Harry Harkins, both of Muddy Creek Township, three grandchildren; Thompson “Tom” Harkins of Muddy Creek Township, Traci Harkins of Mt. Joy, PA and Mary “Rosie” McMullen of Muddy Creek Township and a sister, Norma Jean Weidner of Coatesville, PA.

Words will never be able to express how much you mean to me. Throughout my entire life you have been not only my grandmother, but one of my closet and dearest friends. You taught me so much about life that I treause just a little bit more now. Thank you for not only being my Grammy, but my second parent. I wasn't ready to let you go, none of us were, but knowing that you are no longer in pain gives my heart some relief. One of the last things you told me was that you would be shinning down on me and I know you are because I see you now in everything I do. Thank you for teaching me the value of life, the concept of caring, compassion, humbleness, forgiveness, and every other quality that shined through your bright smile. I hope that one day, I can be just a fraction of the person you were. I can't wait until we can be together again. I love you.
Your Sunshine

You were a true saint. In this world there was no better mother than you. To me you were more than just a mom you were my best friend and I’m going to miss you. To me and Beth , And to Tom, Traci, and Rose you taught us what it is to be a loving ,caring Mother and grandmother. I have truly been blessed in my life to you have you for my mother. The only comfort I have is to know you are in heaven with the Lord Jesus Christ and that I will be with you again one day. I love you mom One of the last things you told me what this is not goodbye this is just until we meet again love your son

No better Mother or grandmother. No better friend. For Sara everything was about family. A life lesson for those who loved her.

Ed, Beth & Rosie,
Sara was by far one of my best friends. She was the most kind, generous and considerate person that I have had the privilege of knowing. I will forever miss our weekly phone conversations, and the many good times we had together. She will always be in my thoughts, especially when I am watching the Weather Channel, her very favorite channel. Both Harold and I extend our deepest sympathy to you. May she rest in peace. Love you all.
