Sara was born May 1st, 1917, to Steven and Mary (Rice) Allen. She grew up on a farm in Spencer Co. and lived there for the first 90 years of her life, mostly in Taylorsville. She attended Berea College in Berea, KY, married W. S. Day in 1940, and had one daughter, Judy, in 1942. Her careers included running a grocery store, serving as a secretary for the county extension office, and working at People's Bank of Taylorsville, starting as a teller in 1941 and serving as president before retiring in 1985.

Sara was an astute investor, steering clear of stocks unless they paid a good dividend and any investment if she had to wonder how she would get her money back. When she took pictures of her grandkids, she didn't shout "cheese!" but rather "money!" She kept meticulous accounts and records relating to her finances, but she was no hoarder. Her house was neat and tidy but also warm and comfortable. 

Sara enjoyed cooking, gardening, travelling, and reading, particularly mysteries of Sue Grafton's Kinsy Millhone Alphabet Series. 

She hosted family Thanksgivings for dozens of family members for many years. But she also cooked, on a regular basis, the best fried chicken, chocolate cake, triffle, and custord. She played with her grandchildren, and later her great-grandchildren, with incredible energy well into her 80's. 

She maintained her garden, independently, until the age of 90. This included mowing the lawn herself. She travelled the US and the world, including many trips to Germany, France, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. She also valued her faith, as a 75 year member of First Baptist Church in Taylorsville, where she served for many years as treasurer. She was the oldest living member of First Baptist. She enjoyed many civic organizations, including the Spencer Co. Chapter of the Business and Professional Women's Club. 

After reaching the age of 90, she moved to Woodlands Creek Retirement Center in Clive, IA, to be near her daugther and her family. 

She is survived by her sister, Jean Ware; grandsons, David (Meg) and Peter (Christine); Son-in-law, Paul; great grandchildren, Joe, Mike, Luke, Hayden, Henry and Ben Bissinger; as well as many nieces, nephews, and other extended family, who remember her fondly. Sara was preceded in death by her parents; siblings, Steven, Billy, Joe, and Matilda; husband, W.S.; daughter, Judy; and grandson, John Paul.
