Life of Sara
Sara was born to John and Sara Kyle. She was a lifelong resident of Philadelphia until her sudden death at the age of 71. Sara attended St. Clements School and was a graduate of West Catholic High School for Girls. She was raised and lived in the Southwest section of the city where she also worked at the Eastwick Project Area Committee Inc. as a bookkeeper/accountant for 35 years until she retired. Sara loved spending time with her family, grandchildren and her great niece and nephew. She loved taking trips to Lancaster, Pa. and spending summer in Wildwood, NJ. Sara is survived by her brother John Kyle Jr. her sister Kathleen Albrecht, her sons Albert Saunders Jr. and John Saunders Sr. Her grandchildren, Gary Gottschall, Briana Saunders and John Saunders Jr. as well as her nieces and nephews.


Sara’s life with us will always be remembered. She has been the perfect mother, aunt, sister and friend to everyone she came across since she was born. She will always be remembered for the different things she was to one and all. To all of us here today, she was the person who loved her family, loved helping others and the simple things in life. To her children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces she was a good mother, grandmother and aunt. She gave them the very best in life. Every single one of them got the very best from her. Her role in their lives will forever remain exemplary. To her brother, John J. Kyle Jr., she remained a caring and loving sister. Always there to contribute positively to peace and togetherness.
To her sister, Kathleen Kyle Albrecht, she kept in very close contact with. With their daily evening phone calls either to discuss their days or just to talk about the show or movie they had just watched.  To her late mother and late father who she loved and cared for all their lives; even through difficult times.
To her co-workers and colleagues, friends and neighbors, she was always there to help, advise and to give to everyone that she crossed paths with. She remained gentle and humble up to her death. We are so proud to call her ours. It is painful to lose her, but God needed a special angel and he took the best.
We wish her farewell as she joins her family and friends in the bosom of God Almighty and our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ. May St. Peter and all the saints open wide the gates of heaven as the angels welcome you with great trumpet and open hands! Farewell to a very special lady!
