Sally Kaye Stewart Ubaghs
Sally passed away suddenly and peacefully on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at the age of 79. She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Ron and their two children, Wendina and Bryan in Seattle, and her sister Jean Sherwood in Spokane. After graduating from Lewis & Clark High School in Spokane, Sally attended the University of Idaho, and then came to Seattle and the University of Washington, studying Nursing and Art. In 1960 she took some out-of-town girlfriends out to see the "local color" in the University District, and there she met Ron, who was on a similar mission with an out-of-town fraternity brother. She always enjoyed telling new friends the story about how she "picked up" her future husband at the Blue Moon tavern.
After she finished at the top of a training class, Sally became one of the only two female "draftsmen" in a huge aero-space engineering group at Boeing. Then came a seventeen-year career raising two creative children and volunteering at the school, followed by seventeen years at the phone company -through Pacific Northwest Bell, U.S. West, Qwest, and Century Link - and into retirement.
Sally enjoyed traveling with Ron to Thailand, France, England and southern Spain, and cruising the Atlantic, the Caribbean and the Panama Canal. And she really loved the many family vacations on the Oregon Coast. She took advantage of Seattle's culture with seasons at Civic Light Opera, Gilbert and Sullivan, the Symphony, the Opera, Shakespeare and many Dance performances.
A future gathering with family and friends is being planned. Remembrances can be made to Channel KCTS-9. Sign Sally's on-
