Usually alert and ready

When my friend Sara started working at the Dallas Times Herald in 1976 as a copy editor, she woke up early and left her home in Richardson by 3 a.m. to travel to the newspaper’s office in downtown Dallas. By 4 a.m., she was sitting at her desk, usually alert and ready to edit the day’s news.

For years, she worked from early in the morning to the middle of the afternoon and then rushed home to care for her children. And, for years, Sara told me, she was sleep deprived.

Sara was a single mother. “It took me a long time to realize how hard mother worked to keep our family together,” Elizabeth, Sara’s daughter, told me recently.

Sara, who died on February 6, was a Resolute Woman.
