Sara Magoon

A beloved daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend, Sara Katheryn Magoon left this world unexpectedly, at 28, on Feb. 11, 2018. 

Born in Chandler, Arizona on Nov. 19, 1989 to Jeff and Monica (Sanchez) Magoon, Sara grew up in Globe, just east of metro Phoenix, where she attended Holy Angels Elementary School and Globe High School before relocating to Phoenix in 2008.  

Sara was a lover of the arts and fashion and enjoyed dancing and listening to music. 

She was funny, outgoing and vivacious, but she was also introverted and introspective.  Appropriately self-nicknamed “Panther,” a symbol of power, beauty and grace, she was fiercely loyal to her friends and family. We will always remember her infectious smile, piercing blue eyes and caring personality. Her presence in our lives will be sorely missed. 

When you think of Sara, celebrate the good memories you have of her. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest.  

Sara was preceded in death by her grandparents Ron and Sue Magoon.  She leaves behind her parents, brother Andrew; sister Ashley and her husband, James, and their daughter, Eva; grandparents, Dick and Dora Buckley and Jim Sanchez; aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. 

A Celebration of Life was held at 2 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 24 at Meldrum Mortuary, located at 52 N. Macdonald in Mesa.  The ceremony was followed by a potluck dinner at the Shalimar Country Club from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. located at 2032 E. Golf Avenue in Tempe. 

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that a donation be made in Sara’s name to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) 

We love and will never forget you, Sare Bear!
