Sara was born Feb. 28, 1970, in Valparaiso, Fla., on Eglin Air Force Base. Always a bubbly, outgoing child, she lived in Niceville, Fla., Denver, Colo., Miami, Fla., Incirlik, Turkey, Mountain Home, Hammett, Boise, Moscow, Nampa and finally New Plymouth, Idaho, and she made loyal, loving friends wherever she lived.

Sara graduated from Glenns Ferry High School in 1988 and from the University of Idaho in December 1992 with a bachelor's degree in psychology.

She was fortunate to have several jobs she enjoyed but working with the children in the New Plymouth elementary and middle schools was a particular favorite.

Sara was currently working at the Internet Truckstop in New Plymouth (if she could talk on the phone -- she was happy) and where she also made good friends.

An avid marksman, she enjoyed shooting and the competition at Shoot for the Cure was where she had the opportunity to outshine her dad.

She is survived by her son, Gunnar Clinton, parents John and Lynne Watkins of Hammett, grandfather, uncles, aunts, and a multitude of cousins -- all who love her and will truly miss her.
