Obituary for Sarah Louise Gray

Peoria- Sarah Louise Gray, age 45, of Peoria, passed away on Friday January 8, 2021.

Born January 3, 1976 in Birmingham Alabama, the first daughter to Barry M. Gray and Elizabeth A. Gray, she earned a BA from the University of Georgia , an Associate degree in textile at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchanidising in Los Angeles and an RN from OSF St Francis Nursing School in Peoria. She was a dedicated nurse to her patients with traumatic brain injuries, a loving wife, daughter, sister, and friend. She was an avid outdoors person, and enjoyed mountain biking, hiking, camping, kayaking, swimming, gardening and tutoring children. She will be sorely missed.

She is survived by her husband Christopher M Swindell, her parents, and her sisters, Anne Tent and Ellen Gray, her niece Joanna Tent and her nephew Hugo Tent.

Due to the Covid19 epidemic, the Memorial Service will be held in the summer.

A memorial is in the process of being set up with a local Peoria non-profit. It will fund bike repair stands in Sarah’s memory at the trailheads of some of Sarah’s favorite local mountain biking trails.
