Your Funeral



Desert Sunset Staff


Although not all are licensed funeral directors, they are all vitally important toward the operation of our firm.  These individuals make it possible for us to professionally coordinate funerals with the quality of service our community has come to expect from us.

Sarah was born and raised in rural Kansas.  She moved to Tucson from Kansas City in 2011 after accepting a job with Adair Funeral Homes. She felt called to serve her community and joined the funeral profession in 2005. In 2007 she graduated Cum Laude from Kansas City Kansas Community College, earning her Mortuary Science Degree. As a Licensed Funeral Director/Embalmer Sarah is available to assist families with planning tributes for their loved ones that are most meaningful and appropriate for their individual needs.  
Sarah spends most of her time away from work with the two great loves of her life- her husband, Mark, and grown son, Gage. As a family they have always enjoyed hiking, lifting weights, painting, attending concerts and rescuing cats and dogs. She also likes working on music with her son, although they have yet to perform together outside of their living room. Sarah has also recently developed a deep love for running and hopes to participate in marathons in the future.
