Sara Mae Puffer

August 6, 1921 - December 26, 2019

Sara Mae “Brandi” Puffer, 98, of Milwaukie, passed away peacefully holding hands with her daughter, Christy.

 

Sara was born in Portland to Rocco and Mary Brandi, the first of their three daughters. She grew up in Southeast Portland graduating from Franklin High School six months early in January 1939. She married Arleigh L. Puffer Nov. 9, 1941. They settled in Southeast Portland where, other than short stints in Maine and Turkey due to Arleigh being in the Air Force, they raised their two children; Arleigh Rocco and Christy Marie. In 1973 Sara and Arleigh moved to Milwaukie where they lived out their lives.

 

Sara was preceded in death by her husband, Arleigh in 1986; sisters, Eleanor and Flora; and her grandson, Travis. Sara is survived by her children, Arleigh Rocco Puffer (Sharon), Christy Lester (Tony); four grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. We all felt blessed to have Sara in our lives.

 

The rosary will be said at 11 a.m., followed by a funeral Mass at 11:30 a.m., Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020, at St. John the Baptist Church in Milwaukie. Immediately following the Mass will be a reception in the Parish hall. There will be a viewing from 10:30 – 11 a.m., in the church vestibule.

 

To honor Sara, the family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be sent to St. John The Baptist Church, 10955 S.E. 25th Ave., Portland, OR 97222.
