Sarah Galloway Larrabee

Sarah Galloway Larrabee, 99, of East Craftsbury, died on April 15, 2019, in East Craftsbury.

Sarah was born in Salem, Virginia, on June 5, 1919, the youngest of the three children of Thomas Peebles and Anna Alexander Barnard.  She graduated from Roanoke College in 1940, with a bachelor’s degree in English and from New York University in 1942, with a master’s degree in Christian Education.  Sarah taught English in the Radford Public Schools upon graduation.

Sarah married Robert W. Galloway in 1942 and moved to Columbus City, Iowa, where Robert served as the pastor of two United Presbyterian Churches.  In 1946, Sarah and Robert moved to Towson, Maryland, where Robert was called as pastor of the Towson Presbyterian Church.  During many of the years that Robert served as pastor, Sarah served as a Bible teacher to adults and children.  She was a gifted teacher who incorporated her love of religious art into her teachings.

Soon after moving to Towson, Sarah and Robert vacationed in East Craftsbury.  They fell in love with the area and purchased a neglected farmhouse without electricity or running water in nearby West Glover.  Summers became time for fixing up the house with the help of Towson church members (who drove the 556 miles) and Vermont neighbors to assist with such jobs as mending the roof, hooking up the water, washing dishes in an old iron sink and painting, painting, and more painting.  Wonderful times shared by family and friends in beautiful Vermont.  The East Craftsbury Presbyterian Church became an additional church community for Robert, Sarah, and their family and friends. 

Many beautiful stained glass windows grace the sanctuary of the Towson Presbyterian Church.  These intricate and colorful windows tell many of the stories of the Bible through detailed pictures.  Sarah loved being a part of the planning for the windows as well as being a “window docent.”  She thoroughly enjoyed walking up and down the aisles of the church telling and retelling the stories of the Bible as depicted in the windows. 

Sarah worked for the Maryland Children’s Aid and Family Services in Towson for 18 years in the volunteer programs.  She served as the director of volunteers for five years before retirement.

In 1979, Robert died.  Shortly thereafter Sarah started working as a travel agent at Valley Travel in Timonium, Maryland.  She spent ten years helping others plan trips and was also able to satisfy her own passion for travel and to personally see the magnificent works of art that she so expertly incorporated not only in her teaching, but into her life as well.

In 1995, Sarah moved to Glen Meadows Retirement Community.  Three years later she married Martin Larrabee and they shared five happy years together in both Maryland and Vermont before he died in 1993.

Sarah moved to Pickersgill Retirement Community in 2012, where she had many friends, but as she needed to move to assisted living she decided to move to the Craftsbury Community Care Center in East Craftsbury and very near her Vermont home amidst the beautiful green mountains.

Wherever Sarah lived she enjoyed many friends and was a friend to many.

Sarah was preceded in death by her son, David Christopher Galloway.

She is survived by her daughters:  Grace Randle of San Jose, California, and Sarah R. “Becky” Galloway of West Glover.  She is also survived by four grandchildren:  Shaun Randle and his wife, Emily, of Hudson, Iowa, Tim Randle and his wife, Judy, of Cupertino, California, Sarah Randle and Ernesto Villarreal of San Jose, California, and Rebekah Randle of Oakland, California; and three great- grandchildren:  Grace, Alice, and Joyce Randle of Cupertino.

There will be a service at the East Craftsbury Presbyterian Church on June 5, at 2 p.m.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers contributions be made to the East Craftsbury Presbyterian Church or the Craftsbury Community Care Center.
