Sara Jakey

1989 - 2022

Sara Kay (Prevo) Jakey, 32, of Gladwin (formerly of Alpena), passed away Tuesday, February 8, 2022 with her family by her side.
She was sick the day she came out of the womb, February 22, 1989 in Port Richey, Florida. A few years later, at the age of three, started her lifelong battle with neurofibromatosis, and with it, all the accompanying pain. Doctors said she would only live until she was 12 years old, but Sara had something to say about that. Striving for a life of normalcy was never easy for the kind young lady with the affectionate laugh. Among her greatest moments was receiving a dream trip to Walt Disney World. Make a Wish Foundation covered all her expenses, so Sara could go with close family members. On August 26, 2019, another lifelong dream started to take shape when she went on her first date with Aaron Jakey. It was a moment she hailed as “the best day ever.” They courted for a short time before he proposed to her in the mountains of Tennessee. On June 26, 2021, Sara Prevo became Sara Jakey in what was the fairytale wedding that she always longed for. “The wedding was
everything I wanted it to be,” stated Sara, January 28th.

She is survived by her husband Aaron Jakey; mother Tina Brown of Alpena; father Gary Alexander, Indiana; brother, Arden Livingston, Alpena; in laws Peter and Lisa Jakey, Posen; grandmother Viola Laniewski, Hudson, Florida; aunts and uncles: Karen and Gene Beaubian, Alpena; Ronald Olson, Alpena; Ardith (Dwayne) Bertram, Lake Butler; and many cousins.

She was preceded in death by her grandfather Lief Laniewski.

The funeral service will be conducted in July.
