Sara Lee Marino Becaria
December 26, 1948 - December 28, 2019
So sad to learn that Sara has left us! Heaven is richer today but we lost a beautiful, precious friend.
Today Pam Hawkins Swan wrote me, "Cathy, Sara Marino passed away this morning at 3:30 am."
Sara and I were buddies throughout elementary school beginning in Kindergarten at Miller in Burbank. So many fun memories!

I knew Sara was in the hospital recovering from surgery and it has been a difficult year for her. Her faith was strong and she always had an encouraging word.
Her last text to me was, "Happy Thanksgiving my dear friend. Blessings and peace on this joyful day. Love, Sara ❤️"
Rest in peace, sweet Sara... you are greatly loved and dearly missed but we will meet again.
Please keep Sara's family in your hearts and prayers... Husband Ed, Sons James and Sam, Sister Carol (BHS '68) along with her many other relatives and countless friends.

Yesterday in the wee hours of the morning heaven gained another angel. After a long fight against a number of challenges, she finally closed her eyes and slipped into her eternal rest. Anyone who ever got to know her got to experience her warmth and kindness. I love you so much mom. God am I going to miss you.

Oh, I am so very sorry. I remember her well.
Sorry for your loss Cathy. It's hard to lose life-time friends. The class of '67 has lost SO MANY of their friends. I think it's more than the class of '66.

So sorry to hear this, such a dear sweet person. Every time I'd bump into her downtown Burbank somewhere she had a smile on her face and always would remember me and say hi. Sending my sincere condolences to family and friends.

I remember Sara and her sister Bonnie, Sara and I lived in the same apartment building on Grismer after high school. So sad to hear this, I've always wondered where she was 😞
So very sorry to hear this. R.I.P. sweet Sara. My prayers go out to your family.

I’m so heartbroken. Sara and I were friends since kindergarten with Mrs Winter at Miller. We reconnected with the reunions and it always seemed no time had passed between us. We still giggled like little girls and reminisced our playground days. Such a sweet soul and dear friend. What a loss. My sincere condolences to her family. ❤️
Jo Elaine Morton
