ST. GEORGE — Sara (Ramsey) Snow Glenn passed away on Dec. 27, 2022, at home with family, at the age of 83. She was the youngest and last surviving child of Carl A. Snow, Gladys “Sally” (Ramsey) Snow and stepmother Alma Snow, following siblings Fran, Katie, Carl and Steve.

Born in Worcester, Mass., in 1939, and raised in Maine and New Jersey, Sara attended Nathan Clifford Elementary, King Junior High and Deering High School in Portland (where she was elected “Sophomore Class Wit”) and graduated from Princeton High School in New Jersey in 1957. She enrolled in Bennington College, later transferring to complete her undergraduate degree in history at Columbia University in New York City, graduating Phi Beta Kappa in 1964.  Additional degrees included a master’s in social work from Boston University (1975) and an MBA from Simmons College (1984).

In 1960 Sara married Michael L. Glenn, and together they raised two children, Jason and Ezra, moving from New York to Massachusetts, with a brief stint in Minot, N.D. Following a separation and then divorce in the 1970s, Sara moved from Somerville to Medford, Mass., through various towns in Maine, and then to Shrewsbury/Worcester, Mass.

Most of her professional career was dedicated to social work at Catholic Charities in Massachusetts and Maine, where she coordinated adoption programs, food pantries, counseling assistance and other social services. Following retirement she returned to her family home in Wiley’s Corner, Saint George, where she continued to work part-time at Walmart in Rockland and remained active in the local Grange and other civic, cultural and environmental organizations. She mowed her own lawn and raked her own leaves until she was 82. In 2022 she returned to Massachusetts to be closer to family due to illness, living in the Visiting Nurses Association facility in Somerville.

Sara was fiercely independent and adventurous. In the late 1970s she took up jogging and became active with the Boston Athletic Association, running everything from fun-runs to full marathons in Boston, New York, Washington, Paris and Bermuda. In addition to raising two children, earning two different graduate degrees, and working full time, she also found time to travel the globe alone and with friends. She took backpacking treks in the American West and Canadian Rockies (often with Willard’s Adventure Club), toured Europe and visited family in Australia with her second-stage life partner Martin Klein and traversed the country by train in her late 70s.

She is survived and missed by her two sons and their spouses, Jason Glenn and Victoria Mendoza of Los Angeles and Ezra Haber Glenn and Melissa Glenn Haber of Somerville, Mass.; grandchildren Mehitabel, Linus, Tobit and Dimitri; her extended Klein-family, including Dorothy and Rob Ticknor (and children Sam, Charlie and Max) and Sarah and Tim Van Der Veen (and children Colin, Emily and Will); and many cousins, nephews, nieces, neighbors and other lifelong friends and fictive kin.
