Sarah Elizabeth Coulombe

Sarah Elizabeth Coulombe, 63, passed away Friday, September 2, 2022 in the Lahey Medical Center, Burlington after a courageous struggle with complications resulting from heart and diabetic issues over the past two years.

Sarah was born in Boston on March 9, 1959 and came to reside with her loving parents the late Isobel A. (Nixon) Coulombe and Armand J. Coulombe. She attended Ipswich Public Schools and was a 1978 graduate of Whittier Vocational and Technical High School. She traveled to Florida and South Carolina for several years until she found herself coming back home to live in Ipswich once again. Most recently, Sarah worked locally in retail sales, caretaking her late mother and late aunt as well as several others. In earlier years she worked as a waitress for several local restaurants.

Sarah will be remembered for her willingness to always help anyone and everyone. She had such a great sense of humor, and smile that would make it hard for you not to reciprocate. Sarah always had great appreciation for the people that she met and had a warm demeanor that would make anyone feel at home. Her family and friends will miss her twisted sense of humor the most.

Along with being stubbornly independent, she loved her family and friends. Sarah had such a strong love of animals and made it known she was always willing to help any animal in any way she could. Her cat “Little Girl” was her companion and the sunshine of her life and made Sarah’s time at home during the last two years much easier. Sarah will forever be loved and will be missed every single day.

Sarah is survived by her loving family of two brothers, Adam Coulombe and his wife Rosemary of Salisbury, Bruce D. Coulombe and his wife Diane of Watkins Glenn, NY; her  nieces and nephews, Andrew C. Coulombe and his fiance’ Kensie Sheehan and their newest addition to the family Autumn Rose Coulombe of Ipswich, and  John H. Coulombe, James Coulombe and Althea Coulombe all of NY.  She also had several friends, Heidi Sotiropoulos and her lifelong best friend Donna Farina both of Ipswich, always there to assist her at the drop of a hat. Her family cannot thank them enough for helping her over these past two years.

Family and friends are respectfully welcomed to her funeral service at 10 am Friday, September 23, 2022, in the Whitter-Porter Funeral Home, 6 High St, Ipswich. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in her name may be made to Cape Ann Animal Aid, Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter, 4 Paws Lane, Gloucester, MA 01930.
