Marvelous Mom of the Month – May, 2016 – Sarah Blakely


It’s a bird….It’s a plane….No, no, no….It’s just Sarah Blakely! She has been chosen as Marvelous Mom of the Month! Sarah has four fantastic children ranging in age from 11 to 17 and she supports their busy schedules 110%. They play every sport imaginable from lacrosse to dance, are alter boys at church, take piano lessons, fish almost daily in the local ponds, and her youngest son just started his own beehive, to name a few activities! Sarah has been a Pilates and swimming instructor, manages her son’s soccer team, volunteers her time both at church and for Meals on Wheels, is currently the Director of the non-profit organization Flashes of Hope in the Akron area, does all her own landscaping (and if you saw the boulders at her house, you would understand why this is so impressive), and is the Hostest with the Mostest by welcoming anyone and everyone into her home, better known as Camp Blakely.


Sarah has a home improvement resume that would put most Handy Men to shame. She grouts her own bathroom tile floor! She also paints, designs, takes out carpeting, and does construction from the ground up, all in a single afternoon. It’s exhausting just thinking about doing all of that!

When discussing a nice day out with her kids and husband of 23 years, she will casually mention that they attended two soccer games, a volleyball match, cut down their own Christmas Tree, visited the Natural History museum, and ended the day with 5 o’clock mass and dinner in Little Italy. No biggie, just a Saturday for Sarah!

Sarah works very hard to keep her family well rounded, respectful of others, and close with one another. She challenges them to finish what they start, without excuses. We applaud her energy, focus, and devotion which have developed such a strong family. Congratulations, Sarah Blakely, YOU are a Marvelous Mom!
