Sara Shaheen, born November 29, 1953, passed away on May 15, 2017 at home
with her loving companion huskies Abby and Destiny at her side. Sara was a
highly accomplished person, having trained, and then worked, as an
emergency room and critical care nurse at Lee Hospital/Memorial Medical
Center. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in
medical records in 1977. She then earned a nursing degree from St. Francis
University in 1985. Prior to college, she graduated from Richland Township
High School.
Sara, was a warrior, having previously survived a kidney transplant and
stroke. She was awaiting another kidney.

Sara had many friends, thousands of Facebook admirers (4,985 to be exact),
and over the years, her dogs Destiny, Abby, Sage, Ciara, Kessa, Kimba and
Brandi were the light of her life. Her indominatable spirit, love of
animals and enthusiasm will never be forgotten. She was loved by all. Sara
was preceded in death by her parents.
