Sarah, of New York City and Amagansett passed away on Friday, October 26, 2018 after a courageous battle with brain cancer. She was 58. Born in New York City, she summered in East Hampton for many years, ultimately living there much of the year. Sarah graduated from the Buxton School in 1978 and from Barnard College in 1982. Several years ago, reflecting her love of design, she founded French Presse Linens, a bedding and home goods store in Amagansett, NY. Sarah was predeceased by her father Gaston de Havenon, mother Anna Lou de Havenon and brother Andre de Havenon. She is survived by her husband, Joseph Fowler, her children Dylan, Aidan and Ethan Fowler; and her siblings, Michael de Havenon, Alexander de Havenon, David Kapell and Rebecca Kapell Leigh. Sarah was a devoted wife and mother as well as a loving friend to many. A deeply spiritual person, she was a teacher of yoga and practiced meditation. A service will be held Saturday, November 3 at 11am at the First Presbyterian Church at 120 Main Street in East Hampton, NY.
