Obituary For Sarah Elizabeth Taylor

Sarah Taylor passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 19th, 2022 in Harrisonville, MO at the age of 42.

Sarah was born January 28,1980 in Kansas City, MO. A 1998 Grandview High School graduate, she had an excitement for life and experienced life with wide-eyed wonder. Everything would take her breath away, from the butterflies at Powell Gardens, to the wild cats at Cedar Cove and the hummingbirds in our backyard.

The first thing you’d notice about Sarah was her huge smile! She’d greet everyone with a smile and tell you what she had just done or what she was about to do…she always had a story to share. No matter who you were, Sarah would immediately treat you like she had known you forever. And oh what an infectious laugh she had! She’d have you laughing right along with her in no time.

Sarah’s love for Jesus was reflected in how she lived her life. She cared about people, no matter who you were. She had a generous spirit and took great joy and delight in creating things so she could give them away.

Sarah’s journey through life left footprints of kindness, love, joy, and faith. Her bright smile and giving heart will be greatly missed. Even though she is gone, her memories and legacy shall continue to inspire us to live the full life Jesus promised to give His followers.

Sarah is survived by her parents Sharon and Jamie Arwick of Harrisonville, MO; grandmother Phyllis Alves and Uncle Bill Alves of Peculiar, MO; brothers Christopher Neale & fiance Tanika Davila of Lawson, MO, Ryan Neale of Waldorf, MD, Hans (and Danielle) Arwick of Stacy, MN, Monte (and Lynette) Arwick of Pleasant Hill, MO, and Jeff Arwick; sisters Tracy (and Brandon) Hannon of Belton, MO, Jubilee Arwick of Peculiar, MO, Rosanna (and Aaron) Harbin of Grain Valley, MO, and Callie Arwick of Kansas City, MO; and many much loved nieces and nephews.

All are welcome to attend Sarah’s Celebration of Life memorial on her birthday, Saturday January 28th at 11:00 am at Heart of Life Church, 800 SW State Route 150 Hwy, Lee’s Summit, MO.

    I will always miss my sweet friend. I didn't get to meet her in person but we were good online friends. She gave me bath bombs, CDs and LulaRoe Pants. We had lots in common with each other.

    Dearest sister, I can remember when I was young and you got your first apartment across the way from mom. I knew you where thrilled! I remember Chris and I stopping by one day and we all decided to walk down to K-Mart! Ha! How time flies! Not sure why that memory really stuck with me, maybe because it was just a good day... Sarah, you were always so kind, caring, gentle, and fun. I can only imagine how much more you are now?! ...and I know you are probably already playing auntie with Lynette and I's little ones up there! No doubt about that!!! I know mom would wish you back, but she knows just how much better it is where you are! You are truly free! -Monte

    Sarah will always have a place in my heart. She was so sweet and always put her family and God first. I will never forget her smile that would warm your heart or her hand made gifts. She always made me feel welcome and I love visiting with her and listing to her stories. -

    Sarah, you are a delight to all who meet you here on earth, and I'm sure in heaven as well. Thank you for your friendship so freely given. Thank you for sharing your gifts with all so generously. You're a treasure. You'll be missed down here, but what a celebration you must be having up there!

My favorite was when you would play outside with me, and I love all the things you makeded for me." -Adah, Age 5 "I wish you were still here and we could eat those popsicles that you gave to us together again." -Lena Age 7 "Miss Sarah, I miss you. I miss you being next door and playing outside with me. I know you're in heaven, and I hope next time there's fireworks you watch them with me from heaven." -Freya Age 4

    Sarah's personality lit up the room. Her smile kindled instant acceptance and welcoming in the heart of those who met her! I will always remember her uninhibited love for Jesus! She sought Him with a persistent fervor! Sarah's kind, caring heart has left a bright mark on us all and will continue to illuminate each of us as we keep her memory! Praying still for her family who misses her very much and who know without a doubt they will one day be reunited in their heavenly home!

    Sarah unknowingly spent her last day giving my youngest daughter her most Special Christmas memory. Going on her first shopping trip without a parent. She had a special bond with my youngest, and Sarah was the one she wanted when the fireworks scared her on the Fourth of July. Sarah was one of my kids' favorite people, and we still can't believe she's gone. Thank you for being such an amazing example of Christ's love. Rest easy in Heaven, Dear Friend. We'll carry you with us in our hearts every day until we see you again.
