Sarah Crocker passed away quietly at home surrounded by loved ones on May 22nd after a long and heroic battle with cancer. Sarah was happiest at home on her land with her hands in the dirt, the wind on her face and the sun warming her entire being. She will be remembered for a sense of beauty and style, her philanthropy, commitment to conservation, fondness for practical jokes and unique visual artistry. Her bronze sculptures touched many including a commissioned work in Burlington, VT on permanent display at the Main St. Landing.

Sarah is survived by her sister, Dee Crocker McKown (Keith), her brothers, Jay Crocker (Maria) and Sam Crocker, very special nieces and nephews, Alyssa McKown (Silas Gilbert), Nikki Villarreal (Dustin), Cary Crocker, Brett Crocker, Sam Crocker and Carter Crocker and a great-nephew, Asa Gilbert. She was pre-deceased by her parents, Julian and Edith (Cunningham) Crocker of Dover, MA.

Sarah was born in Boston, attended Winsor School in MA, California College of Arts & Crafts and Goddard College in VT. Sarah's volunteer work included gardening projects for non-profits, support of local efforts to promote visual arts and most recently, Meals on Wheels.

A private memorial service is planned.Contributions may be made to a Cancer Prevention and Recovery project in Sarah's honor, or to the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust,
