While attending a National Tall Club convention in San Francisco, Sarah met her future husband Leland Johnston. Sarah moved to Los Angeles and married Lee in 1955.

After retirement, the family relocated to Valley Springs for 20+ years before returning to Stockton in 2015. Sarah was greatly loved by her family and will be missed by all those who knew her well.
