She graduated from Wiley High School and married the love of her life, Robert Austin Slover, on August 6, 1948. They were a devoted couple for 40 years until the death of Robert on November 19, 1988. Sara Lou and Bob loved to dance and socialize with their friends. They were a past president couple of Sycamore Country Club and were active members for several years.
Sara Lou was a loving and proud mother to the couple's three children, Allen, Sally and Jill. Even up to her last dying words, she still had to know if her children were safe and well. She was also very proud of her ten grand and great grand-children and loved to get to see them.
