Sarah E. Jones

Sarah E. Jones, AKA “Sally” or “O’Toole,” formerly of Ridgecrest, passed away peacefully on Dec. 16, 2016, in her home in Carson City, Nev., at the age of 80.

She wanted a party, and a party is what she will get. Please help us celbrate her life and share a funny story. Services are Friday, May 4, 11 a.m., Fort Rosecrans Cemetery, San Diego. A reception will follow immediately. Please call her family for the details at 619-917-1722.

Born to Charles August and Celeste Carlson in 1936, the youngest of five, she grew up in Vista, Calif.

Sarah had an infectious laugh and the ability to command the room when she entered. She gave birth to three children, and raised 11 because she was mom to many.

Sarah loved the theater and was an accomplished actor and director as well as a mentor to many over five decades in Ridgecrest.

Sarah touched many lives and will be remembered for her generosity, her big heartedness and her contagious laugh! Pobody’s Nerfect was her motto — she always looked for the good in everybody.

She is survived by her children Mike Hetrick, Nicole Johnson and Kari Hetrick, plus five grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
