Sara was born on October 19, 1982 in Danville to Charles and Debra (Warren) Mack Sr. She worked at Walgreens Help Center for many years as a Customer Service Representative. Sara liked reading, cooking and baking new recipes, and doing crafts including painting and drawing. She enjoyed the outdoors- hiking, taking walks, and doing trails. She has a huge heart and a love for animals, as well as making time for girly dates with her nieces. Her biggest joy however was her children and spending time with them at their sporting events and PTO events, watching TV together, singing in the car, playing, hosting cookouts and get togethers, and taking vacations to new places. Sara married Nick Holycross on August 3, 2002 and the two have shared over twenty wonderful years together. She leaves behind her husband Nick; three children: Lars, Layne, and Harlon Holycross; a brother: Charles “CJ” Mack Jr; her mother and father in law: Debbie (Jerry) Holycross; stepfather: Terry Mills; her lifelong friends: Deborah Hesse and Amanda Acker Osborne; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents.
