Sara was born August 17, 1984 to Terry and Helen Nemitz. She graduated from Cornell High School in 2002. Sara married Steven Budtke on June 12, 2004. They were blessed with two children Anna, 13 and Hunter, 6. Sara made a career in the banking industry working most recently for Prevail Bank as a Deposit Operations Specialist. Sara's love for her family was transparent, easily letting them know they came first. She never did anything halfway. Her zest for life was always present in everything she did. Sara enjoyed reading, doing puzzles, and games of all kinds. If there was a pinochle game Sara would gladly jump in and give you a run for your money. Those closest to her knew of her "obsession" with the Golden Girls. She collected frogs of all shapes and sizes which was fitting because she truly lived the meaning of the word F.R.O.G. (Fully Rely On God). Sara's light will continue to shine through her loved ones.
Sara was welcomed into Heaven by her father Terry Nemitz, Grandparents Robert and Judy Nemitz, father-in-law Donny Budtke, brother-in-law David Budtke, sister-in-law Gloria Ann Budtke, Grandparents-in-law Ray and Mary Kloos, and Grandmother-in-law Verna Kroening. Sara is survived by her husband Steven, daughter Anna, and son Hunter (Milladore), mother Helen Nemitz (Medford), brother Matthew (Genny) Nemitz (Medford), sister Kimberly Nemitz (Dorchester), Grandparents Arnold and Rosalee Diamond (Hannibal), mother-in-law Kathy Budtke (Marshfield), brother-in-law Donald (Judy) Budtke (Rozellville), sister-in-law Sarah Budtke (Auburndale), several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and special people she held near and dear to her heart.
