Sara Marlow Vallini

February 20, 1931 ~ April 11, 2017 (age 86)

Sara Marlow Vallini, age 86, of Marion, passed away peacefully during the evening of Tuesday, April 11, 2017.  She was at her home when she passed.  A daughter of the late Lant Marlow and Mina Frazee Marlow of Marion, Sara was born on February 20, 1931.  Following graduation from Glenwood High, Sara married the love of her life, Bart Vallini.  Their union was short lived as he passed away at a young age on July 4, 1968.  Sara worked at Marion Manufacturing for 20 years before deciding that she would take her life in another direction.  She went to beauty school and before long had the Merle Norman franchise in Marion which she kept for the next 36 years.  Her time there made her many friends over the years which continued to be a blessing to her even after she retired in 2009.  Sara loved to travel and enjoyed the company of her family and friends.  Although she and Bart never had children, Sara had a wonderful group of close friends who were like a family to her.

 

She leaves behind a niece, Mary Ann Vallini Gallen of Marion; many cousins, Katherine Gallion and husband Roger of Marion, Glenn “Shorty” Robbins and wife Barbara of Montford Cove, Hazel Busbin and husband Jack of Ft. Mills, SC, Keith Frazee and wife Sharon, Brooks Frazee and wife Glenda, Wallace Frazee and wife Melinda, and Brian Frazee, all of Fayetteville, and Allen Frazee and wife Linda of Albemarle; special friends, Bobby and Alma McPeters of Marion and many others who she held very close to her heart.

 

A service to celebrate her life and homegoing will be held on Friday, April 14, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel of Westmoreland Funeral Home in Marion with Rev. Michael Robinson officiating.  The family will receive friends from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. prior to the service at the funeral home.  Following the services Sara will be laid to rest beside her beloved Bart in McDowell Memorial Park.  Flowers are appreciated, however, those desiring to make a memorial contribution in her memory are encouraged to consider CarePartners Hospice and Palliative Care McDowell at 575 Airport Road, Marion, NC 28752.
