Sara Elizabeth Crafton Boswell, age 93, of Henderson, Kentucky passed away on Saturday, November 20, 2021 at her home. She was preceded in death by her husband, Hugh W. “Bubby” Boswell, siblings William Crafton, Ben Crafton, James Crafton, Harold Crafton, Charles Crafton, Norris “Cy” Crafton, Albert “Frost” Crafton, Wanda Crafton, and Eleanor Eades. Sara is survived by her daughter, Elizabeth Ann “Betty” Boswell, DVM, veterinarian, and her life companion, Scott Klosterman, of Louisville, KY, brother, Wilbur “Bud” Crafton, of Knoxville, TN, and nieces & nephews. Ms. Boswell was a member of Bethel Baptist Church. At a young age she married Bubby Boswell, who was a local farmer and later a rural postman in Henderson County. She boasted at the fact that they had been married for 54 years and spent many working hours together. She and her husband worked their farms in Bluff City and Hebbardsville for over 35 years together. She often spoke of the tractors that were “his” and “hers”. Sara had a witty personality and people loved her. In 2002 she was presented the LUV Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service to the Henderson Community and in 2009 was given the Redbank’s Volunteer of the Year Award for over 30 years of service to Redbank’s Nursing Home. She was a professional interior and exterior painter, lay interior decorator, creative cook, philosopher, and humorist. Whenever there was a need for encouragement, care for the sick, or a helping hand, Sara was there. Sara, with her positive energy and joy of life, was the hub and heart of the Boswell and Crafton families. She was a gift of love from the Creator of All That Is to her many friends. As she often said “I’ve never met a stranger. They are just friends I haven’t met.” Relatives and friends are invited to Sara’s Life Celebration from 3:00-8:00 p.m. on Tuesday and again on Wednesday starting at 10:00 a.m. until service time. The funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 24, 2021 at Benton-Glunt & Tapp Funeral Home in Henderson, KY with Rev. Alan Chamness officiating.
