It is with great sadness and heartbreak that we announce the passing of Sarah Ellen Wentzell, age 38, on August 10, 2021. Born August 18, 1982, she was the daughter of Gary and Marilyn Wentzell, Blockhouse; younger sister to Anna Bellows (Wentzell) and aunt to Gabriel Bellows, both of Blockhouse. She was predeceased by her grandfathers, Everett Silver and Chester Wentzell; grandmother, Bertha Zwicker and uncle, Vernon Silver. Sarah will be missed by her long-time companion, Jesse Troyer, who she lived with in Bridgewater, her 100-year-old grandmother, Audrey Silver as well as a large family of aunts, uncles and cousins. Though her life was cut short, her family and friends will always remember the good times, her laughter, her sense of humour, and her kind heart.
Sarah was a creative, artistic person with a diploma in graphic design, who loved to paint and create abstract art. Later she earned a certificate as a make-up artist fulfilling her childhood dream. Her happy place was the beach, she absolutely loved to swim, and would get in the water no matter how cold it was! The Big Ex in Bridgewater was something she looked forward to every year and she always got a bracelet and went on the rides all day long. Family get-togethers on occasions such as Thanksgiving and Christmas were treasured and Sarah enjoyed the tradition of playing games such as Balderdash and Jenga as she was extremely competitive! She adored animals, including her cat, Sammy. Watching movies and TV shows was another one of her favorite things to do, and she was always going to the local library to borrow something new to watch. Likely she watched everything they had multiple times! Her favorite go-to show was Glee, it was a feel-good show that just made her happy. Over the years Sarah endured a lot of struggles, but she was strong and she fought hard right until the end. Our family finds solace in the fact that she is no longer in any pain and that her beautiful soul is finally at peace. She will be greatly missed.

There will be a small gathering with immediate family and close friends at the Garden of Rest Cemetery, Blockhouse. The family would like to thank you for your outpouring of love and support and if you would like, please send any donations in her memory to the Bridgewater Inter-Church Food Bank, SHAID Tree Animal Shelter or Souls Harbour Rescue Mission, Bridgewater.
