Sarah Reddick Batten was born July 30, 1927 in Blakely, Georgia to parents John and Mattie Reddick. Ms. Reddick gave up the opportunity to attend college to instead marry her sweetheart Johnnie Batten in July of 1947. She is survived by her two daughters, Barbara Batten, Sylvia Batten-Smith, and her grand-daughter, Cemera Batten-Berrocal. She also leaves behind siblings Mattie Range, Lucy B. Green, John, Benjamin Reddick, and a host of nephews, and nieces. Sarah was a fierce fashionista, a lover of song, and choir. Whenever she was happy be sure you’d hear her singing a (gospel) song. Above all she loved the Lord and her family. Her presence was a gift of joy, she was adored and loved by countless many. Sarah Reddick Batten sang songs of love, even whispered it unto the very end. Her legacy will live on with us forever.

    To the Family, the Lord Declares and Promises for us: In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself. Imagine a place where they’ll be no more trouble. A place where pain and heartaches will cease. Imagine a place where there will be no more sorrow - That’s the way Heaven will be. Imagine a place where there will be no more darkness. A place where the sun is gonna shine in the night. Imagine a land where there will be no more trials - That’s the way Heaven will be. With Love and Our Deepest Sympathy: Rev. Deborah Stephens & Family
