Sarah Conn Obituary

On Wednesday afternoon, September 27, 2023 at the Liberty Health and Rehabilitation Center in Liberty, Kentucky, God Spoke and called Minister Sarah Lee Conn to her heavenly home. Saying," Well done, thou good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over few things, I will make you ruler over many things... You have fought a good fight, you have finished the course, and you have kept the FAITH!

Minister Sarah L. Conn, affectionately known by everyone as " Sarah " was born on Saturday, November 27, 1932 in Simpsonville, Kentucky to the late Joseph and Eliza Ann Conn.

She moved to Shelbyville, Kentucky along with her mom, brothers and sisters when their father retired from farming. It was during this time that she would use her deep, profound voice to form a Blues group and also managed a small restaurant. But, God saw a different calling on her life. In the late 60s, she was saved/baptized under the leadership of the late Elder James W. Chambers at Bethel Temple church. A few years later she started to fellowship at the Born Again Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith under the leadership of the late Bishop John W. Barber and the late Mother Anna C.

Mobley where she received the calling from God to become a minister. God spoke to her again, moving her spirit to unite with the Church of God of America, Inc. under the leadership of the late Assistant Bishop Clay Beasley where she was a good and faithful servant.

Sarah's life was an epitome of service to God, her family/friends and a testimony to a strong work ethic. Throughout her life, ensuring that family would not be separated, she offered them a warm bed, love, a hot meal and words of encouragement. She just wasn't just Aunt Sarah to her nieces/nephews and friends, she was: Momma Sarah & Grandma Sarah.She helped guide, shape and give advice when needed to anyone whom came into her presence.

Sarah never shyed away from work, she retired from Logan Dry Cleaners after devoting 26 years to the company. Not content with setting at home, after about 6 months she was back in the workforce. She retired from F.B. Purnell Sausage Company after 21 years of service. " I work for what I got; I get what I want because I work " she would often say.

Sarah had a host of family members and friends that she loved and that loved Her. Which is shown by outpouring of love on this sad, but joyous occasion.

If she said she " loved you " you felt that love in your soul, and that is something everyone will miss along with that affectionate smile. Besides the love she had for her only daughter, First Lady Eliza Napier, she had a special place reserved in her heart for: Paulette Trowell ( niece), Gloria Taylor ( great niece ), Edith Wilkinson (niece) , Tiandra Taylor (great great niece ) Mary Moore ( neice) and Jai' Ona Thorton ( great great niece ).

Minister Sarah L. Conn leaves to cherish her memory: son in law, Rev. Timothy A. Napier; grandson, Jaharvas J. Napier; great grandson, Jeconiah J. Luttrel; soon to be great great son, Keenan J'ace Luttrel; a host of nephews, nieces and friends.

She was preceded in death by her only daughter, First Lady Eliza Napier; her parents, Joseph and Eliza Ann; four brother: James Walter Conn, Jessie James Conn, Logan Conn and Joseph Conn, Jr; four sisters: Frances Washington, Margaret Patterson, Mary Elizabeth Moore, and Ella Conn; and some neices and nephews.

Ephesians 4:32 - " And be kind and compassionate ( tender-hearted) to one another, forgiving one another ( readily and freely ), just as God also forgave you in Christ."
