Sara Pulley Underwood, 85, of Quitman MS, passed away peacefully on March 23, 2018. She was born April 27, 1932, in Stonewall, MS, to the late Benjamin Elijah Pulley and her mother, Stella Geneva Pulley. She was preceded in death by her husband William R. (Billy) Underwood, Jr.

She spent most of her life in Clarke County before moving to Cincinnati, Ohio with her family in the late 1960s. While in Ohio, she went to night classes and obtained her real estate license. Soon she was one of the top real estate sales people in the region and won many honors and accolades for her abilities. When her family moved back to Clarke County, she sold insurance until she retired.
