Sarah Louise (Stovall) Baisden of Hartford, Connecticut was born on November 24th, 1914, in Augusta, Georgia to Marion Stovall and Harriet Dell (Crawford). She made her final journey home on April 3rd, 2018. She is survived by her son Elbe Baisden Jr., grandsons Shawn M. Sims, Esq. (wife Jessica) and Steven M. Sims; three great-grandchildren Jordan M. Sims, Austin M. Sims and Sarah J. Sims. She is also survived by her sisters Helen C. Dixon and Ella P. Smith. She was predeceased by her daughter Arlene Loretta Baisden, R.N. and her sister Lottie D. Proffitt. Sarah had a host of nieces and nephews, most notably Denise, Marsha, Lynette, Marlene, Doreen, Deborah, Maurice, Cheryl, Pamela, Robin, Wendy, Darryl, Conrad Sr., James, Brandon Sr., and a multitude of great nieces and nephews and a large extended family of the Baisden, Stovall, Sims and Crawford clans. As the matriarch of our family, she was a gentle, warm-loving, soft-spoken woman that lived to the amazing age of 103. No one will ever forget the amount of love that she has shown throughout her life. In her younger days we would witness her dancing the night away. Even in her later days we would witness her rocking in her wheelchair to some imagined beat. In the 1960's, she was employed with The Hartford Electric Light Company (now CL&P). She also proudly worked on a television cooking show, alongside her mother Harriet. Over the years she worked in several homes with families that became part of her own extended family. The family wishes to thank the administration and staff at Sterling Manor and Manchester Manor who allowed her to spend her later years with dignity. Your attention to her wellbeing has been a comfort to all of us. Her funeral service will be held at Immanuel Congregational Church, 10 Woodland Street, Hartford, Connecticut on Friday, April 6th, 2018. There will be a viewing from 10 a.m. -11 a.m., followed by a service at 11 a.m. Burial will be held immediately following the service at Spring Grove Cemetery, 2035 Main Street, Hartford, Connecticut. Carmon Funeral Home of Windsor, CT has care of her arrangements.
