Obituary for Sarah Ann Kilfoyle

Sarah Ann Kilfoyle, 78, died peacefully at her home in Plymouth, New Hampshire on October 4, 2018 after a long illness. A service celebrating her life will be held on Saturday, October 13 at 11 A.M. at the Common Man Inn in Plymouth.
Born on February 10, 1940 in Trenton, New Jersey to Thelma May and George Earl Conover, Sally, as she was known to her friends and family, graduated from Ewing High School and then attended Wilson College, graduating in 1962 with a degree in Latin.
Sally’s career spanned over six decades, most of it spent working with one of her foremost loves, the English language. She started her career as a Latin teacher and then went into publishing in New York City where she met her husband John Brady. She and Brady eventually settled in Trenton after their children, Michael and Brigid, were born.
Sally worked for more than twenty years as an editor for the Electrochemical Society in Pennington, New Jersey until she moved to New Hampshire in 1996. She then worked for many years for the Laconia Citizen, a daily newspaper, again as an editor, and finally finished her career at the age of 77, retiring from Plymouth State University where she served in a number of administrative roles.
Sally was also very involved with her community, serving on a number of non-profit boards and volunteering her time to many spiritual and charitable initiatives, including Helene Fuld Hospital, Trinity Cathedral and the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation. Sally loved her family and friends, her beloved books, watching sports, and sometimes even loved playing golf. She was a doting mother and grandmother and loved by all who knew her.
She is predeceased by her parents, her husband Brady and her daughter Brigid. She is survived by her son Michael, daughter in law Barbara and granddaughters, Logan and Madison.
Burial will be at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to the Brigid C. Kilfoyle Memorial Scholarship Fund, c/o Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation, PO Box 7312, Gilford, NH, 03247.
