Sara was born in Temple, Texas on November 28, 1972 to Jerry Hollifield and wife Kathy (Walker). She married Chuck Neagle on January 23, 1993, and was happily married for 25 years. She went on to have two sons, Devin Lee Neagle, and Jeremy Edward Neagle. Her family would continue to grow with Devin’s marriage to Dani Nicole Knight, who went on to give Sara her first grandbaby Ryan August Neagle. Sara also loved arts and crafts with the nieces and nephews, decorating Christmas cookies, in particular, was always a favorite, both to her and the kids. She also found a lot of joy in family gatherings, especially Thanksgiving. The holiday fell close enough to her birthday that she always had a German chocolate cake waiting for her.
After the birth of her grandbaby Ryan, Chuck and Sara moved out of town to a more quiet life in the country, where she began her favorite hobby, raising her chickens. And turkeys. And quail. She had more than one “crazy chicken lady” T-shirt in the closet. She got more joy than I can tell you out of those animals, and loved every one of them, even the ones she didn’t like (Reba). Sara was just that way, she had more love to give than most anybody.
