Sarah Langley Obituary
LANGLEY, DR. SARAH “LEE” Dr. Sarah “Lee” Langley, PhD., of Branford, died Sunday May 4, 2014, at Lawrence and Memorial Hospital, New London. Dr. Langley was born in New York, NY, March 3, 1927, daughter of the late Clifford and Hazel Hill Longley. Dr. Longley had been a professor in the Department of History, Political Science and Philosophy at Eastern Connecticut State University in Willimantic until her retirement in May 1993. Having a strong belief in education, Dr. Longley was always willing to help anyone who had a desire to learn. She had received a BA from Barnard College, a MA from Columbia University, and a PhD in Anthropology and Archeology from New York University. She also attended advanced classes at Oxford University in England. Lee (as she was known by her friends) had accomplished many things during her life. She had been a licensed Occupational Therapist; a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserves, a mystery writer twice published by Doubleday (“Osiris Died in Autumn” and “Dead Center”) and had participated in numerous archeological digs and shared correspondence and knowledge with anthropologist Jane Goodall. Over the years, Lee spent a good deal of time traveling in various places in Europe, but the place that captured her heart was Greece, to which she returned many times. Lee leaves no family, but will be greatly missed by those that considered her a true friend. A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 10, at 1:00 PM in the W.S. Clancy Memorial Funeral Home, 244 North Main Street, Branford. Interment in Stony Creek Cemetery will be at a later date and will be private as per Lee’s wishes. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to any charity that helps animals. For directions and online memorial, see www.wsclancy.com.
