What began as a way to remember for Janice Sabo to remember her own mother has turned into a county-wide yearly memorial.
In 2014 Chattooga County resident Janice Sabo started a tradition, a memorial video dedicated to all the Chattooga County families who lost a loved one during the year.
“When my Mom passed away she was only 56 and I was lost. My Mother’s wish was to be cremated and her ashes spread over her Mom and Dad’s grave. Later I realized, I didn’t really have a memorial for my Mom. I would visit my grandparents grave site where my Mom’s ashes were spread but there was no gravestone, no marker, nothing in remembrance of my Mom. That’s why I started doing the video. Our loved ones should be remembered, always,” said Sabo.
“It’s hard to believe that we are more than midway through 2021. In the past I would post at the end of the year regarding the Chattooga County Memorial video but this year I wanted to announce a few times before the end of the year so everyone will have an opportunity to share and send pictures,” Sabo said.
