Sara grew up in Dekalb County and after high school, she started working at Belk’s in downtown Atlanta. She met a coworker in the shoe department there by the name of Randall Adams. They soon started dating. However, during the 1950’s, the draft began and Randall signed up for the Air Force. After Randall became a pilot, the couple wanted to get married. He was able to fly his plane to Moody Air Force Base and Sara was able to drive down from Atlanta and they were married at First United Methodist Church in Valdosta.
