Sarah R. Grubb (1756-1790) was a woman of extraordinary natural abilities, strength of judgment, and clearness of discernment. Being favoured with a visitation of heavenly love when young, she submitted to Christ’s refining fire and was brought into that passive condition wherein the vessels in the Lord’s house are formed and fitted for usefulness. Having been early prepared for service, she came forth as a public minister about the twenty-third year of her age. Some years later, she and her husband founded a girls school in Clonmel, Ireland, where she lived and ministered until her death in 1790, at only 34 years of age.
Thus fell a valiant in the church militant, whose endowments and dedication are equalled by few of the present generation, and to whose memory, I believe, as general a tribute of tears has been paid, as to any person with whom I was ever acquainted.- George Dillwyn (upon the death of Sarah Grubb)
