Sara (Sally) Chappell
Sara (Sally) Chappell quietly passed away in the early morning hours on Sept. 20. She had been living in a memory care unit for the past 3-1/2 years in the Sacramento area. She was a wife, mother and woman whose "soft and gentle voice" spoke with forceful conviction as her children, Peggy, Betsy and Jay, and their spouses came to know and appreciate.

Sally was born in Berkeley on Dec. 22, 1926, in Alta Bates Hospital where she later served as a long-time volunteer. In addition to Alta Bates, she was very active in supporting the Orinda Community Church UCC, Berkeley YWCA, Town and Gown and local book clubs. Her favorite recreational activities were travel, theater, needlepoint, bridge, crosswords, the cabin at Donner Lake and reading, which she continued to do up to the day she died.

Sally, and her husband Ed, traveled the world and also took their children and grandchildren on some of these trips. She was a good person, a wonderful friend, a gracious host and a mother, a Granny and GG who will be missed by her children, in-laws, 8 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.
