Indianapolis

Sarah Jo Madren of Indianapolis passed away March 21, 2024. She was born December 12th, 1937, in Anderson, Indiana to her parents Maurice and Minola Sylvester.

      Sarah graduated from Anderson High School in 1955.  She attended Sunday school at a very young age. As a teenager at church camp, she accepted Jesus as her Savior.  Sarah was married at the age of 20 to her loving husband of 65 years, William Madren.  She had two children, six grandchildren, and six great grandchildren.  Sarah enjoyed organizing collections, fishing, playing cards, sewing, crafts and doing puzzles.  She was an active member of Sunnyside Road Baptist Church in Indianapolis.   She enjoyed volunteering at the church and numerous places over the years, helping others in need.    

     When asked by one of her great grandchildren what one piece of advice she would pass along she said, “You need to know Jesus.”  Sarah’s prayer has always been that her family, friends and neighbors would believe in Jesus.
