1939-2019

Sara Jane Giovannelli, age 79, was sur­rounded by those who loved her when she en­tered God’s pres­ence on Satur­day, Jan­uary 5, 2019.

Sara was born in Great Bend, Kansas on De­cem­ber 24,1939 to Na­dine and Ed Han­non. She was one of four girls and through­out Sara’s life her sis­ters meant the world to her. Sara had a long ca­reer in mar­ket­ing and in the later years of her ca­reer she en­joyed work­ing for the Texas School of Busi­ness, coun­sel­ing and plac­ing young grad­u­ates. She was ex­cep­tion­ally gifted with young peo­ple and they loved her. Sara was also ex­cep­tion­ally re­silient. In 1981, she was se­verely in­jured in a near-fa­tal car ac­ci­dent. The pain and phys­i­cal dif­fi­cul­ties that fol­lowed the ac­ci­dent would be with her for the rest of her life and yet Sara never let this pre­vent her from her work and en­joy­ing oth­ers.

In 1995 Sara lost her son Phil Gio­vanelli. She missed him and was ea­ger to be with him again.

Sara is sur­vived by her sons John (Tana) and Ed­die Giovannelli (Alyce),

by her grand­chil­dren Sasha, Rose, Erica, Les­lie, Michael and Ni­cholas, by her great grand­chil­dren Claire, CeCe, Sir MichaelT, Adri­anna, and Michael T. Jr. Her loss is also felt by her sis­ter Cathy El­liott (John), her twin sis­ter San­dra Har­rell (Ed­die) and her sis­ter Pat Han­non. Sara adored her grand­chil­dren and great grand­chil­dren. She was a lov­ing and de­voted mother and grand­mother. She will be deeply missed by her sis­ters, friends, fam­ily, and dear friend Jim Wil­liams.

A ser­vice will be held on Thurs­day, Jan­uary 17th at 11:00 a.m. at Cy­press Creek Chris­tian Church.
