Obituary

A funeral service for Mrs. Sara Francis Hall Stevenson, age 97, of Fayetteville, TN will be held at 12pm on Saturday, October 21, 2023, at Higgins Funeral Home with Minister Stan Stevenson officiating. Burial will follow in Shiloh Cemetery. Visitation with the family will be from 11am to 12pm on Saturday at Higgins.

Sara was born October 8, 1926, in Giles County, TN to the late Floyd E. and Mary Bishop Hall and grew up in Dellrose. She was the oldest girl of 12 children and was a tremendous help to her parents. To many of her siblings she was their second mother. Sara supported her husband Bud as the family moved to Georgia for his job with Lockheed. While raising her family she worked as a seamstress and sewing instructor for Singer Sewing Company. She also worked for a time at Rich’s Department Store. Sara was a faithful member of the Church of Christ in Marietta, GA for 52 years, and after moving back to Lincoln County in 2005 she worshipped at the West Fayetteville Church of Christ. She loved camping, sewing, and she definitely had a green thumb when it came to caring for her plants and flowers. Sara loved her family, and family always came first. Books could be filled about who Sara was and all she did, but she will be best remembered as the sunshine of their home and how she was deeply loved by all who knew her. Sara passed away on October 16, 2023, at her home, surrounded by her family.

Survivors include her daughters, Carolyn Carver and Donna (Tom) Blair of Fayetteville; son, Richard (Donna) Stevenson of Cartersville, GA; grandchildren, Shane (Theresa) Stevenson of Rockmart, GA, Slade (Serena) Stevenson of Cartersville, and Tom (Amanda) Blair of Marietta; great-grandchildren, Luke, Sam, and Ben Stevenson of Rockmart, Jessi, Andrew, and Samson Stevenson of Cartersville, and Ashley Blair of Marietta; sisters, Eva Ruth Stevenson and Mary Ann Tackett of Fayetteville; brothers, Dalton (Margaret) Hall and Mike (Darlene) of Dellrose, Paul (Judy) Hall of Anderson, SC; and she was loved by many nieces, nephews, and cousins. In addition to her parents, Sara was preceded in death by her husband, James Brown “Bud” Stevenson; sister, Rebecca Young; and brothers, Joe Hall, Carl Hall, Douglas Hall, and Eugene “Shorty” Hall.

Memorial donations may be made to International Gospel Hour, PO Box 118, Fayetteville, TN 37334.

Higgins Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Mrs. Sara Francis Hall Stevenson.

    I was so surprised and saddened to read in the Marietta Daily Journal that this sweet, loving lady has passed. Even though I haven’t seen her in years, she was never forgotten! My memories of her are sweet and she will be missed by many, especially her loving family. Sara was a devoted Christian and heaven will be much brighter with her presence ❤️

    Sara Was a dear friend and client of mine for many years. Sara and her family treated me like family and always made me feel welcome to her home. Many times she would offer me a honey bun and Dr Pepper with that wonderful smile she was blessed with. I will love her always and miss her so much. My prayers and thoughts are with all her family. May God bless you all with peace and faith that she is in good company with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    With Love and Respect, Don Garrett
