After a courageous battle with cancer, Sarah Evelynn Jeffords, 26, went to be with The Lord on Wednesday (September 12, 2018) at her in-laws’ residence in Waycross.

Sarah was born on May 24, 1992 in Tampa, FL. She graduated from Brantley County High School in 2010. She was an employee of Southeast Georgia Health System working in the office of Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-Obstetrics & Gynecology. Sarah loved her job and she thought of her co-workers as a second family.

Giving up was never an option for Sarah, until her last breath, she chose to face each battle with courage and faith in The Lord. Sarah’s positive attitude was evident in posts she wrote over the past several months, “I know I’m going to beat this one way or another- I have The Lord, my wonderful husband and a wonderful family who support me even when I feel I have reached rock bottom... I am so blessed in so many ways...I am stronger and braver than I ever thought I would ever have to be, but most importantly it has brought me so much closer to The Lord. We have a bond that can't be broken and that is what I'm really thankful for.”

Sarah is survived by her devoted husband, Jacob Jeffords of Waycross; her in-laws, Will and Mary Beth Jeffords; father, Steve Kilgore; mother, Krista Kilgore; brother, Stevie Kilgore (Amy); maternal grandmother, Joanne Aguero (Jesse); paternal grandmother, Barbara Kilgore; close cousins, Stacia Butler and Jason Gaglione; two nephews, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Also left to cherish her memories are numerous friends and her beloved dogs Trigger, Arnold, and Kimber.

Sarah is preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, John Gaglione.

A service to celebrate her life will be held 2:00 p.m. Saturday (September 15, 2018) at the Music Funeral Home Chapel in Waycross. The family will receive friends 12:30 until 1:30 pm Saturday at the funeral home.
