Mrs. Sara Ingle Burnette, 78, of Graham, NC passed away on Friday April 23, 2021 at the Alamance Regional Medical Center in Burlington. A native of Alamance Co. NC, she was the daughter of the late Clyde and Sarah Adams Ingle and the wife of the late Griffin Johnson “Johnny” Burnette. Sara retired from the Burlington Police Department with 20 years of service to her community.

She was a member of Emmanuel United Methodist Church where she was able to share her love for music singing in the Church Choir and playing the piano. She loved to help her church and church family by cooking and volunteering for many church functions. The smiles on her face and the light of her eye was her granddaughter as she and Johnny would never miss a recital, school function and especially any ballgames.
