  5. I cannot believe such a sweet lady is gone. My last visit with you was in a garden gazebo, watching our little ones play and sharing the joys of motherhood at a young man’s birthday…you were glowing with the joys of motherhood, the sunlight shining through your hair. I chose to remember you this way, in those moments with a smile in your heart and a look of pride as you watched Gavin play. My heart goes out to your son and your whole family, your friends and all who knew you. Rest in peace Sarah, gone too soon.

    Sarah was not just an employee, but a member of the Phoenix family for the past 14 years. Sarah started with us as a young women answering calls in dispatch in 2002. She became an integral part of dispatch until she left for a much more important job, being a mom. Lucky for us, after several years away, Sarah made the decision to come back to Phoenix in 2014, and we are so glad she did! Our long time employees welcomed her back, and the new ones got the chance to meet and work with this incredible woman.
    There is big hole in our company and our hearts without Sarah. She will be truly missed by all of her Phoenix ‘family’.

    Our deepest condolences,
    From all of us at Phoenix

  10. I want to express my deepest of condolences to Sarah’s entire family.
    My son and Gavin have been friends since Kindergarten, and I will always remember that smile and the chats we had by the playground.
    A beautiful soul taken way too early.
    May you all find peace with each other and in her memory.
    God bless you all.

    Having known the Schell family in the early 90s whilst living in Fairfield, I remember Sarah and her youngest brother Nathan so very well. Decades have passed, but I will always remember the beautiful, blonde girl with piercing blue eyes as she played with my sister. My thoughts and prayers are with the Schell family in this darkest of times.

    Dear Schell Family,

    Sarah and I danced together as little girls and then attended high school together. I remember the joy she expressed while dancing. Sarah was a natural talent, expressive and fun. I am so deeply saddened by her loss and am thinking of you during this time and the times ahead.

    My condolence goes to the families, friends and the co-worker who had have been with Late, Sarah the time she was in this world. Which indeed I did met her for sometimes along the lunch’s room or the office. As new worker who have join the teams this year/2016. I did get time to know not only her that much but including the rest of the company’s employer which I trying to know them.
    God gives and God takes. And this is the only way all of us shall leave the world. She has been call by the her creator as He promises, that;” I Will Go To Prepare A Place For You Then I will Come To Take You There To Be With Me”. Praise Him.
    May The Almighty Put Her Soul Into Eternity. AMEN!!!!

  22. There are no words to take away the pain that everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Sarah is feeling now. I had the pleasure of meeting Sarah when I was looking for a home to move into with my son. Justin and I were welcomed into the basement suite and we had the absolute joy of being their tenants on Blossom St. for almost 2 years. Years passed and met her again in Silverdale. Exchanged phone numbers and reconnected. I give you (her family, friends) my strength and the love that I always had for Sarah. I would love to attend her celebration of life on Thursday. ♥️♥️♥️. Love and good thoughts, white light and laughter being sent to all. Melanie Weber and Justin

  23. Sarah was a wonderful person to be around, she brought smiles everywhere she went. my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

  24. Sarah is one of Zita’s closest friends and I always felt she is like a daughter to me.
    To have an angel-smile ripped out of our life is almost more than one can bear so I pray that all of you, parents, siblings, relatives and friends would dig deep into the love of God in order to gain strength and sanity to continue this life.

    Sarah is now is comforted and surrounded with immeasurable love in a place where ………….”God will wipe away every tear, where there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

    I don’t know any other effective remedy for the pains and sorrows of this world other than relying on the One who willingly died for us and who said:

    “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”

    ““I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.”

    “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”

    I love you and bless you all.
    I will miss sweet Lillebit till I see her again!

  25. My sincerest condolences to Schell family. Losing a loved one is one of the painful things in this world, no one wants this even our loving Father. It is comforting to know that God deeply cares about us and would soon act to eliminate death. (1 Peter 5:7; Revelation 21:4) May you find comfort from these scriptures and be encouraged that we will soon meet Sarah again.

  26. Scott and Tracy

    We only met Sarah on a few occasions. We immediately felt comfortable when she welcomed us with her beautiful smile. Dave, Erin and Schell family, we are truly sorry to hear of your loss. Scott & Tracy
