She will be deeply missed by her loving husband of 62 years, Les Bresge, her children Lee & Mike Rand, Paul & Roseanne Bresge, Kim & Eric Simmons, as well as her 10 grandchildren, Sasha, Adina, Nikki, Tamar, Jared, Jenna, Bailey, Tyler, Elle, and Brooke, and her sister Essie Sher. She also leaves behind her in-law siblings, Hazel Wolpert, Barney Sher, Marcia and Benny Shtang, her aunt Gertie, and many more dear friends and family.

Sarah’s family is her legacy. She cultivated such a close-knit family, while also nurturing unique relationships with every person in her life. Through weekly shabbat dinners and other regular gatherings, she always found ways to bring everyone together. It is because of Sarah that each of her kids and grandkids felt so close with her, and feel so close with one another.. While Sarah leaves an irreplaceable void, the strong bonds that she fostered amongst the family will continue.
