Sara Conrow

Sara Jessie Conrow, 89, of Mirror Lake, died Tuesday, January 14th.

Sara was born to Ruth and Archibald Crosbie on February 29th, 1924.

Sara moved from Southern California to Argenta and later Kaslo with her family of three children in 1964 to join her sister’s family, her parents and the Quaker community in Argenta.

Sara is well known and loved for the many years that she taught elementary school in Kaslo and for her volunteer work at the hospice in Kaslo.
