Born October 8, 1980, Sarah Caine passed peacefully Tuesday May 7, 2019 surrounded by family at Hartford Hospital.

She went on to specialize in Medical-Surgical Nursing.


Sarah was preceded in death by her beloved husband Joel Milliard. She is survived by her parents, Laura Crow and Dan Caine, her brother Matthew, her sister Ruby, her grandmother Anita Smulowitz, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless friends.


The family would like to thank the staff at the Hartford Hospital trauma center for their exceptional, compassionate care. In lieu of flowers please send contributions to the CT Bail Fund for women

“In my heart, when I grow old

Stay with me

Up she flies on golden wings

There you see

Smiling from the sunlight beams

Dancing in her hair

There she is, in love again.”
