Birth: Apr. 1, 1919
Delaware County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 5, 2010
Delaware County
Pennsylvania, USA

Born to the late Jordan and Alberta Butler Bean. Lovingly called "Sally" by her family, she was the last of eleven children and the longest survivor. She was predeceased by her sisters, Julia, Mary, Alberta, Frances, Marguerite and Anna Bean; her brothers, Jordan, John, Joseph and James Bean. Sarah was a lifetime resident of Media, Pennsylvania, where she attended Nativity B.V.M. School and graduated from Media High School in 1938. Sarah was a talented seamstress and taught handicapped adults to operate power sewing machines at the Philadelphia
Vocational Training Center for ten years. She was later employed as a PostalClerk at Philadelphia's General Post Office at 30th Street until her retirement in 1988. Sarah and James L. Smith were married in 1939 and to that union were born three children, Marguerite (Peggy), Sarah Jane (Sue) and James (Jimmy). Sarah was an extraordinary mother; loving, devoted, and a great role model. She was committed to family and faith. Her favorite activities included The Suburbanites which brought lots of Media ladies together for memorable social activities. She was also devoted to the Legion of Mary, where she visited the hospitalized and home-bound members of her church. She was also a member of Nativity B.V.M. Seniors Club. Sarah was blessed to enjoy 91 years of family life and friendly relationships until her precious Lord led her home. Sarah Jane entered into eternal rest on Sunday, September 5, 2010. We give thanks and praise for the blessings of having had her in our lives.
Sarah is survived by her daughters Peggy and Sue; a daughter-in-law, Betty; twelve grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
