Sarah Ann Thompson, wife of James Gale, was born in Norfolk England. She had traveled to Snowflake Arizona to see George. Father and Annie went with her---they left April 26th. George met them in Rice with team and wagon and took them on from there. Sarah had made a point of taking her burial clothing with her. Her daughter, Carrie Mae Gale Wilkins recorded that she had helped her mother finish her apron before she left. Upon leaving Sarah made a point of kissing everyone and saying "goodbye". Her children adored her and the lasting tribute at the base of her head stone reads as follows: "A mother thou has been to us, All honor to thy name. The Gospel Plan thou taught us, that salvation we may gain." On August 21, 1931, seventeen years after her mother passed away, Carrie recorded her first visit to the grave site, saying. "It was such a consolation to me, she always seemed so far away, and now to be near the spot where she was lying I surely appreciated it."

George Gale met them in Rice with team and wagon and took them on from there. Sarah had made a point of taking her burial clothing with her. Her daughter, Carrie Mae Gale Wilkins recorded that she had helped her mother finish her apron before she left.

Upon leaving Sarah made a point of kissing everyone and saying "goodbye". Her children adored her and the lasting tribute at the base of her head stone reads as follows:

"A mother thou has been to us, All honor to thy name. The Gospel Plan thou taught us, that salvation we may gain."
