Sarah Reed was born March 26, 1928, the 2nd child of 3 sisters born to William Henry Brown and Sarah Thomas Brown (both deceased). Lillie Brown, her oldest sister preceded her in death in May 2017 at the age of 91. Her baby sister Inez Lister also preceded her in death at the age of 79 in March of 2009. Her step-brother, Benjamin L. Brown also preceded her in death at the age of 86 in October of 1994. Sarah Married Eli Reed on December 21, 1950 in San Antonio, Texas. Their union created 3 beautiful children; Quinton E. Reed, Darryl Reed, and Marsha A. Reed. They resided in San Antonio for many years afterwards. She was employed by the Hargis Family for quite a few years which developed into a lifelong friendship. The family moved to Dallas, where the children completed high school. Sarah was later employed as a Unit Secretary at Methodist Hospital in Dallas until her retirement in 1991. Her husband Eli Reed passed away on November 2, 1998 and was buried at Fort Sam National Cemetery with honors. Sarah’s hobbies consisted of cooking, in which PIES were her specialty. She could also make a scrumptious brisket in the oven. She would often travel to San Antonio from Dallas to visit her Sister Lilliewho later was moved to a skilled nursing facility due to her failing health. Sarah would spend numerous holidays with Quinton and his family during her time in San Antonio. Friends would make visits with her as well on her trips. Over time, the care she would give to her beloved sister Lillie took a toll on her health as well. Sarah unfortunately could no longer stay in Dallas and made the difficult decision to relocate to San Antonio to reside in same facility as her sister Lillie. Upon notice of the closing of Chandler Estates, she was moved to Brookdale Senior Living on Fredericksburg Road. Sarah had a yearning to lean more about the Lord with her son and family and on November 22, 2015 became a member of Grace First Baptist Church, pastored by Allen M. Ford. She was present each Sunday the Lord provided her with the strength to attend. Sarah was a devoted church member, and was very proud of her constant growth in her walk with the Lord. Those who knew Sarah could see her continued walk with God, which was evident by her church attendance. She will be missed and remembered with happiness. Sarah Leaves to mourn her 3 children, daughter-in-law (Anitra), 6 grandchildren Renalda (husband Torian), Quinson (wife Danielle), Brandon, Jasmine, Xavier and Avery) 5 great grandchildren ( Georgia, Francesca, Elizabeth, Christian and Isaac; with a host of nieces, nephews and In- laws.

  1. I wish each of you the comfort of loving memories of your wonderful Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother. She has meant so much to me throughout my life. Of course there were pies, her smiles, but even more hugs and love. Perhaps what stands out for me most as a child was talking to her after school. I also got to hear how proud she was of all her children. I know she has given much to each of you. Janet H. Simpson

  2. Grandma Reed, thank you so much for being my Grandmother, although, both of my Grandmothers have went on to be with the Lord. Thank you for always sharing your wisdom with Quinson and I. I remember the day you cried with tears of joy, when we told you that Isaac’s middle name would be Eli. I pray that you felt the love and appreciation that we had for you. I am so happy that Isaac got a chance to get to know you, spend time with you, and give you plenty of kisses. I love you so much Grandma Reed, and I will forever give glory to God for allowing me to have spent time with you one last time before you transitioned. Love you always, Danielle, Quinson & Baby Isaac

  3. My condolences to my oldest sister Anitra and her husband Quinton Eli Reed on the death of his mother, Mrs. Sarah Reed. I pray for my niece and nephews on the loss of their grandmother. May the Lord be with you and keep you through this trying time. Just remember that weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Sarah Reed is no longer having to endure the trials and tribulations of this world; she is now at peace in the bosom of our heavenly father, awaiting his return. When we are absent from the body, we are present with the Lord! Peace be with you Sarah Reed and we pray that we will see you again in that “great gettin’ up day.” Respectfully, the Kates family- Barry, Christal, Courtney and Stephen.

  4. Thank you for being a part of my life. As a Mother in Law, I have grown to know what it means to find my place in a family. I will miss your smile and laughter. You have seen my children grow and have families of their own, I praise God for you having a part in their lives as well. As your only Daughter in Law, you have enriched my life in a very unique way. You may be gone but never will be forgotten. I am so proud to see you grow spiritually closer with Jesus Christ. We all know you are in the Master’s hand. So it is not good bye, but see you Later. We loved you dearly. I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress. Psalms 59:16. Love you always….Anitra
