Sarah Hinshaw Rickerman of Landenberg Held in the Light Sally died peacefully in her home on the morning of July 10, 2015. She lived guided by her Quaker belief that we all have an inner light (caring, nurturing, the divine) and that humanity is elevated as we seek and nurture the inner light within ourselves and all others. Sally worked tirelessly throughout her life on efforts to nurture others within and outside of Quakerism. She was lead to freely share her insights and to develop numerous resources so that others might better follow their own leadings. Sally was an active, caring member of her world community initiating and working on many projects to better humanity and our Earth. A Quaker Memorial Meeting for Worship will be held at 2 p.m. Aug. 15, 2015 at London Grove Friends Meeting, London Grove. She is survived by sons, David (and Julie), Jonathan, and Jeffrey; granddaughter, Claire; nieces and nephews, Janet, Foster, Lila, and David and their children and grandchildren; extended family members and many dear friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Henry George Rickerman and her father and mother, David Hinshaw and Augusta Wiggam. A memorial fund has been established to continue Sally’s efforts, contributions are welcomed, for information contact QuakerCassandra@gmail.com
