Sarah was born to Joseph and Mary (Jones) Templeton. The family lived in the Dunreath/Red Rock area during her youth. She attended Knoxville High School, Central College, and received her B.A. from Drake University.

Throughout her long teaching career, she taught in several one-room country schools in the area, in the Pella school district, and at North Elementary in Knoxville until her retirement.

She was an active volunteer in the Republican Party, serving a term as county co-chairperson. During her years in the Templeton & Harvey family farm partnership, she also served in many volunteer roles supporting 4-H, County Extension work, and Farm Bureau work with her husband Dwight Harvey, who preceded her in death.

In Knoxville and in Eldora where she resided with her second husband Melvin Roetman, she pursued life with joy and vigor.

She was a member of First United Methodist Church, PEO, D.A.R. and other interest groups. She had a quest for learning and enjoyed reading, quilting, the wonders of nature, mushrooming, hiking, and traveling.

Above all, she treasured her friends and family. She was a good friend to all.

She is survived by five daughters, one son, several grandchildren and great grandchildren.
