Sara was born premature on November 25, 1979, in Syracuse, to Douglas Jandreau Sr. & Donna (Birdou) Hendershot. With a strong will to be alive, Sara overcame many obstacles in her life and graduated from Riverview High School in Florida.

As she matured, Sara’s drive for perfection, although difficult at times, allowed her to become employed at the local Pizza Hut, where she worked for 6 years. She loved being around others and was a good friend to all that knew her.

In her spare time, Sara enjoyed playing cards, bingo, creating crafts with beads, talking on the phone and spending time with her family, especially her mother, who she loved so dearly.
