"NAF" 2005 Obituary


NAFE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-07-02 published
NAFE, Sarah Underhill " Sally"
writer, grandmother, and great friend to many, died on June 21, 2005 in Vancouver, British Columbia. She was 88 years old. Born in Media, Pennsylvania, Sally was a talented and determined force of energy. Right up until the time of her death, she was actively involved with The Brock House Writers. After graduating from Swarthmore College, Sally was invited to join a writers' group led by Lucy Sprague Mitchell, founder of Bank Street College in New York. Later she worked hard to plan and design a children's reading room for the town library in Palisades, New York. She wrote with grace, humor, and astonishing detail about the many people, animals, and travels in her own busy life.
She was married for 55 years to John Elliott (Jack) NAFE, Professor of Geophysics at Columbia University. In 1958, Jack's groundbreaking research demonstrated, for the first time, that sound waves could travel around the entire globe through the ocean. They lived at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory for nearly 30 years before moving to Canada, and during that time she worked tirelessly to host countless scientists and their families.
Sarah Underhill NAFE's Quaker background traces to two of the original sixty followers of George FOX. Her great-grandfather, George TRUMAN, was a founder of Swarthmore College. During the last twenty-five years she lived for joy, companionship, countless Friends, all animals (especially cats), a good yarn, and a sweeping view of University of British Columbia, Georgia Strait and mountain peaks. One particularly handsome peak, she had adopted as "Mt. Jack", after her late husband. She is survived by her daughters, Mary (Mackie) CHASE of Vancouver and Katharine (Kate) KENAH of Granville, Ohio, their husbands, Richard L. CHASE and Christopher KENAH, and six grandchildren: Sarah, Sam, and Eli CHASE, Eben and Hannah KENAH, Molly Kenah SULLIVAN, and their partners Lucas LIEPINS, Christy NIETO, Asma AKTAR, and Andrew SULLIVAN. Three causes especially dear to her heart are: The American Friends Service Committee, The World Wildlife Fund, and The Brock House Society of Vancouver. A family service was held at Brock House on Friday, June 24th.
