In memoriam by Mardi Kidwell and Esther Gonzalez
It is with great sadness that we report that our friend and colleague, Sally Jacoby, passed away on July 27. Sally had been battling lung cancer since October. For those of you that knew Sally, or had the good fortune to meet her, you will remember her as a vivid, smart, candid, and very funny individual. She brightened meetings and data sessions with her charm and fabulous style, and most certainly, her love of red. During the past year, she faced her predicament with the utmost of poise, delighting in the contacts and well wishes of friends and colleagues from all over. Sally was someone who loved an ''ooccasion'', a reason for getting together and seeing friends, and she managed the situation as just that.
We miss her dearly.
Her funeral service was held at Temple Israel in Portsmouth and she was interned at Temple Israel Cemetery in Portsmouth. Memorial contributions may be made to the Seacoast Cancer Center at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover or to the Temple Israel in Portsmouth.
