Sarah Hochkins, 33, of Marietta, departed her earthly home, bound for her eternal home in glory, Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018.

She was born Jan. 10, 1985, in Lithia Springs, to father, John Thomas Hochkins, and mother, Susan Dragoo Hochkins.

She is preceded in death and welcomed home by grandparents, John and Elizabeth Hochkins, of Northville, Mich.; Aubrey and Bulah Dragoo, of Marietta; uncle, David Hochkins, of Canton; aunt, Connie Kubik, of Plymouth, Mich.; and cousin, Glenn “Sonny” Goetz, of Thrall, Texas.

Sarah attended Tennessee Tech University on a softball scholarship with a strong bat and great speed in left field. She was a gifted vocalist who enjoyed singing hymns with her family. Sarah was a talented cosmetologist who took personal pride in honing her craft and making people look their absolute best.

Everyone will always remember her sunny personality and smile that made her eyes sparkle. Even though Sarah only spent 33 years with us, she lived life to the fullest and made the most of every day. We will always carry Sarah in our hearts and remember what she taught us about being present in every moment and loving the people near and dear to our hearts.
