Ms. Sadie Bell Barnette became absent from the body to be present with the Lord on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at White Oak Manor in York, SC. Sadie was born March 27, 1927 in York, South Carolina to the late Robert and Sadie Lowry Barnette.

Sadie attended the public schools of York County. She accepted Christ as her personal Lord and Savior at an early age, and became a member of Langrum Branch Baptist Church. She was a member of the Missionary Society and Burial Aid Society.

Sadie was a domestic worker. She helped in the rearing of many children. She was a homemaker; her specialties were sweet tea, sweet potato pies, and coconut pies.

In July 2004, she was admitted to Oak Pond Assisted Living of Rock Hill, and in August 2007, she was moved to White Oak Manor in Rock Hill. In June 2009, she became a resident of White Oak Manor in York, where she remained until her transition from this life.
