Sarah Reynolds Sullivan
February 22, 1958 - June 18, 2015
Sarah Reynolds Sullivan reunited with her father Jim Reynolds and grandson Trevor Sandoval up in heaven Thursday June18th. She died due to complications of a heart attack at Dominican Hospital. She was a 57 year old Watsonville native, where she attended Pajaro School and Watsonville High. She was a Real Estate Agent and an Office Manager of several geotechnical engineering firms including Reynolds Associates, Rock Solid Engineering and Tharp & Associates.
She leaves behind a devastated family, including her husband, Rick Sullivan, her daughters and their spouses, Lisa & Ralph Sandoval, Amy & Justin Kraemer, and, Haley Sullivan. She is survived by her mother, Sharon Reynolds and three sisters Rebecca (Mike) Procter, Deborah (Rick) White and Esther (Rick) Davis. Sarah will be missed on the baseball field,& horse shows, by her six remaining grandchildren, where she could be seen every weekend cheering for them, Victoria & Savannah Kraemer, Monique, James, Madelyn & Zackary Sandoval. She was very close to her army of nieces and nephews and even her great nieces and nephews who lovingly referred to her as "Grandma Sarah".
Her vast network of friends are equally devastated by the loss of such a fun and loyal friend. Sarah loved to host poker game nights at her home with her husband and good friends. She even taught her grandkids "to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em" around her poker table. You never wanted her owl to look at you. She also loved to play Bunco. She was the absolute master of deviled eggs and stuffed mushrooms and served them up for many events. She loved to be outside playing golf or down at the harbor with Rick and their F/V Wet and Wild.
Sarah will be remembered most for her sense of humor, her love to laugh (and snort) and her very protective mother bear attitude. She had a great contagious laugh. It was deep and from the belly, and it would cause her green eyes to sparkle and dance. You can probably hear her laughing now, laughing all the way to heaven.
The services will be held at Ave Maria Memorial Chapel at 2pm this coming Saturday June 27th, 2015.
