With deep sadness we announce the passing of Sara Ann Roberts on Monday February 13, 2017. She passed away peacefully after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Sara leaves behind her two beloved children Wynn and Vaughn and her husband Rob Morley. She will also be missed by her mother Doreen, father Mike, brother Marc (Hee Jung), and his children Luke and Noah.

Sara was born in Regina on December 4, 1981 and was raised in Swift Current. She attended the University of Calgary for her first degree before living in Busan South Korea for one year where she taught English. She then went on to pursue further degrees at the University of Saskatchewan in international studies and history. Before she passed Sara worked the Archer Library at the University of Regina.

Sara loved reading, soccer, yoga, and the outdoors. She was passionate about protecting the environment and promoting social justice.

More than anything, her love and interest were her two kids who will deeply miss her.
A special thanks to the staff of 3E at Regina General Hospital and the Intensive Care Unit at Regina Pasqua Hospital.
