Sarah Louise Randall, 57, of Burlington, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Sunday, September 16, 2018. She was born December 23, 1960, in Lakewood, CA, the daughter of Joseph and Camille (Mottet) Beason. Sarah spent her younger years in Garden Grove, CA. She was the eldest of four siblings, and she treasured her time with family and friends.
In her twenties, Sarah attended a nursing program and graduated with an Associate Degree in Nursing. She began her nursing career at St. Joseph Hospital in San Fernando Valley, CA. She married Keith Randall in October, 1984, in Sunland, CA. She then was employed as a Physician Laboratory Liaison at Quest Laboratory. After the Northridge Earthquake in 1994, Sarah moved to Sedro-Woolley to live near her mother, whom she deeply loved. She worked for several years in the laboratory at Skagit Valley Hospital. Sarah realized how much she enjoyed her previous part time restaurant experience, so she applied and became the manager of Ivar’s Seafood Bar at the new Burlington Cascade Mall. This was the love of her life job for twelve years. Sarah served the community and made many friends there, and became known as the “Ivar’s Lady.” She was invited to assist with many special events at Safeco Field for Ivar’s concessions, and was even asked to help at Safeco Field’s opening day.
Following in her mother’s footsteps, Sarah was a wonderful cook. She delighted in baking treats for friends and family. Sarah enjoyed watching Seahawk and Mariner games, but her favorite activity was quilting. Her beloved grandmother taught her how to quilt when she was young, and this became her passion. She made many quilts for people in Skagit Valley. As her quilting talent developed, she realized she could use this talent to comfort hospitalized children so she began making children’s quilts from kits sent to her by Quilts For Kids. In 2015, Sarah wanted to help local hospitalized children, so she began the Quilts With Love ministry at His Place Community Church. She was very proud of all the members’ quilts that were donated to the Melodic Caring Project’s “rockSTARS,” children with life threatening illnesses. Sarah loved serving at His Place Community Church and called all the members there her “family.”
As a child, Sarah wrote letters to budding actors and musicians, as well as current presidents, who often returned letters to her. She was a humble and loving person who enjoyed connecting with people, and she had hundreds of Facebook friends. Her smile and laughter will always be remembered.
Sarah is survived by her mother, Camille Mottet in Burlington; father, Joseph Beason in Long Beach, CA; brother, Joseph Beason (MyHun) in Berkley, CA; sister, Catherine Beason in Sedona, AZ; sister-in-law, Nancy Van Rooy; aunts, Joanne Trujillo in Riverside, CA, Mary McConnell in Buckeye, AZ and Cecile Tipton in Sedro-Woolley; uncle John Neiberger in Riverside, CA, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
