  1. Deepest Condolences

    Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 states “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under Heaven: A time to be born and a time to die”. The Department of Pupil Personnel Services, along with the Special Education Teachers and Paraprofessionals were deeply saddened to hear about the passing of your love one, Mrs. Mary Elizabeth “Liz” Sadler. While working in Brunswick County in the capacity as a paraprofessional, Mrs. Sadler gave more than 100%. She went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that her teacher and students had what they needed to promote the learning process. At this time, we rest in knowing that God is always in control and makes no mistakes even when we do not understand. We also know that…
    Life is but a stopping place,
    A pause in what’s to be,
    A resting place along the road,
    to sweet eternity.
    We all have different journeys.
    Different paths along the way,
    We all were meant to learn some things,
    but never meant to stay…
    Our destination is a place,
    Far greater than we know.
    For some the journey’s quicker,
    For some the journey’s slow.
    And when the journey finally ends,
    We’ll claim a great reward,
    And find an everlasting peace,
    Together with the Lord.

    Know that God will place no more on you than you are able to bear. The Department of Pupil Personnel Services, Special Educators, fellow Paraprofessionals and I pray that God will comfort The Sadler Family during this time of bereavement.

    With Deepest Sympathy,
    Brunswick County Department of Pupil Personnel Services

    Leorie K. Mallory

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with Liz’s husband, son, sister’s, brother & their families & friends.
    She will always be in your heart & watching over all of you from Heaven👼
