The following is a note written today by Sarah Stevenson’s younger sister Elloree. Elloree said she had not been able to speak by phone with Sarah for about two weeks until a nurse put her through this morning. Sarah is in quarantine at a care facility in Charlotte. The nurse did not say how long the coronavirus quarantine would last. At the time she entered quarantine, Sarah reportedly tested negative for the coronavirus. Further updates from Elloree Erwin will be shared as they are available.

I had a video chat with my sister, Sarah, this morning. She is feeling that the end is nearing for her and she feels her work on this earth is done.
She asked me to share with you all, her church members, Prince of Peace Lutheran, the Tuesday Morning Breakfast Club and NANBPW members, (National Association of Negro Business & Professional Women) that she loves all of you and that she hopes to see you all in heaven.
She said she’d like to go back to her home for one last night and she’s ready to meet Jesus. She said she’d reach 94 1/2. I advised her that she’s close to 95. This is September and her birthday is in October, so she’s closer to 95 that 94.
Her voice is strong, stronger than it’d been in awhile. She sang her favorite song, “To God be the Glory”, completely through. Of course, we cried a lot and I pleaded with her to hold on and not leave me during this virus.
Thanks to all of you for your love and support for my sister throughout her many years, and I’m praying that she’ll recover and have some more.
