For those of you who knew my mom, she was known for her HOT stuffed cherry peppers that she called Sarah's Cherry Bombs! She loved get togethers and parties!
Sarah S. Parenti, age 93, of Barnegat, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family, on Friday, August 13, 2021. Born in Newark, she raised her family in Monmouth County, working at the Shadowbrook of Shrewsbury for many years.
Sarah loved the beach, enjoying nature and its serenity. She was a loving wife and mother and cherished grandmother. She loved the Lord her God, and prayed for her family.
