Obituary

Sarah Elizabeth Ku, age 37, of Essex Junction, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, December 15, 2018 from complications of diabetes. She was the wife of Andy Ku of Essex Junction..

Sarah was born on November 7, 1981 at Springfield Hospital in Springfield, to Cheryl (Spaulding) Thibeault of Newbury. She grew up in Essex Junction, and graduated from Essex High School in 2001. She attended the University of Vermont in Burlington, where she met and went on to marry Andy Ku. They spent several years in San Diego, California, a short time in Johns Creek, Georgia, before returning to Essex Junction to be near family and raise their two sons, Calvin and Desmond. Besides her husband and children, Sarah leaves behind her two dads, James Earl Duncan or “Daddy Doodles,” as she called him when she was a little girl and his wife, Michelle Duncan of New Haven and Cheryl’s husband, Mark Thibeault, of Newbury, whom the grandsons affectionally called Papa. She was also survived by her sisters, Jennifer Marie Duncan of Essex Junction, Amber Thibeault of Essex Junction, Amanda Rounds of Milton, Stephanie Barrett of Huntington, and Justin Butler of Duxbury, Bonnie Duncan Colman and Heather Duncan of Union Bridge, Md., Scott Duncan of Fort Myers, Fl., James Michael Duncan of Colchester, her mother-in-law, Gentry Chien Ku, of San Diego, Ca., her Aunt Nancy and Uncle Raymond of Acworth, Nh, Uncle Roger Spaulding of Windsor, and Aunt ElaineAmsden of Zephyr Hills, Fl., Uncle Tom Duncan of Buffalo, Ny. and Uncle Paul Duncan of Greensboro, Nc, and Aunt Bonnie Apthorpe of Haines City, Fl. as well as many nephews, nieces and cousins.She also leaves behind her best friend, Kristine (Slattery) Baker of Linwood, Nc.
Among other relatives and friends waiting to greet her on the other side is her maternal grandmother and grandfather, Florence Beatrice and Robert Boyce Spaulding and her beloved pets, Wilbur the cat and Wu-Dog Nike.
All who knew Sarah (deemed Sweet Sarah by friends and family) knew her devotion to her young family. Sarah had many interests, but her sons meant more than anything else. She was proud of each accomplishment and strived to assure happiness and preparation for life’s challenges. She was cherished by her many friends and will be fondly remembered and sorely missed by her co-workers at Condo Guy Team at Re/Max North Professionals.

Sadly, Sarah was a Type 1 diabetic, challenging her lifestyle in so many ways. She faced this without complaint and often left us unaware of her struggles and pain. Her family knew her disease meant a shortened life expectancy, but no one was prepared for her sudden death. Her beauty, patience, and love for her little family will never be forgotten.

Visiting hours will be held from 3 PM on Saturday, December 22 at the Rich Funeral Home, 57 Main St. in Essex Junction. The family will be there until 6 PM to greet relatives and friends. The funeral service will be held at 5 pm on Sunday, December 23 at The First Congregational Church of Essex, 39 Main Street, Essex Junction. A reception will follow at the Essex Resort and Spa, 70 Essex Way. Memorial donations may be made to https://www.gofundme.com/sarah-ku-memorial-fund.

Please accept my sincere condolences. It really saddens me to mourn the loss of someone so young. May the Ku family find true peace and comfort from God's promise to reunite us with Sarah and our dear loved ones again by means of an earthly resurrection, found at John 5:28, 29 when death will be eliminated forever, found at Revelations 21:4. Truly, what a glorious and unbelievable day that will be, for God cannot lie!
