Sarah Louise (Arleth) Kroll was a caring daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend. She left this world suddenly on June 21, 2021 at age 79.
She was born to George C. and Sarah L. (Rayner) Arleth on October 21, 1941in Trenton, NJ and grew up in the family home in Morrisville, PA. After graduating from high school, Sarah (Sally) married her husband (1963), Hank while he was serving in the military on the East Coast. Once married, they moved to the Chicago area where they built their family and business together.
Sarah loved spending time in the kitchen, creating delicious meals for her family and friends or anyone who entered. Family and neighborhood friends would regularly gather around the large kitchen table for her homemade pizza, hoagies and game nights. She was a skilled seamstress and made cherished creations from clothing to doll clothes in addition to many creative costumes.
