Sarah Lillie Horne, age 86, died Sunday, June 5, 2011 at Hospice of Wake County after declining health. Born on November 14, 1924 in Anson County to the late Inez Hudson Horne and Eugene Horne. Sarah is survived by sisters Emma Wiesel and husband Norman of Raleigh, NC; Frances Boisson of Reading, PA; Ruth Burnette of Smithfield, NC; sister in law Mattie Lou Horne of Peachland, NC; brother in law Lynn Funderburk of Lexington, SC. She was preceded in death by the late Herman and Agnes Horne, Edith and Barnes Williams, Houston and Lilly Horne, J.D. and Ruth Horne, Roy and Madge Horne, Hudson and Frances Horne, William C. Horne, Mary Ellen Funderburk, Bill Burnette, and Bill Boisson. She leaves behind many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.

Sarah spent most of her career working for Union Carbide in Knoxville, TN. She retired from there and returned to Charlotte to be closer to family until her health began to decline. A niece brought her to Raleigh a year ago to care for her and for her to be closer to family.

Sarah can most be remembered for her gift of story telling and entertaining others with her sense of humor. Her generosity to everyone she met was unmatched. She was a very private person and very devoted to her siblings and extended family. She loved to come home for the Hudson and Horne reunions and enjoyed the fellowship more than the food. She had two sayings that she will most be remembered for and they are "Oh Boy" and "Bye for Now".

She was an animal lover and took great care of her many dogs and cats over the years. Most remembered are Ling Ling, Pekay and Zsa Zsa. Sarah also enjoyed the theatre/arts, gardening, birds and flowers in her retirement.
