Sara M. Nally
GALWAY, Ireland - Sara M. "Sadie" Nally,

of Galway, Ireland, formerly of Newport, died on January 1, 2006 in Ireland at the age of 82.
She was the wife of Dr. John "Sean" Nally.
Sadie spent over half of her life on Aquidneck Island. Born in County Wicklow, Ireland, she studied at the National University of Ireland and graduated as a Radiographer. While working in Jersey in the Channel Islands she met Sean Nally, whom she married in 1949. After a few years in Australia and in England, Sadie and Sean arrived in Newport, which was to become their home for over forty years. Sadie gave up her radiography career to run Sean's practice when he commenced as a family physician at 409 Broadway. Sadie managed the practice with a combination of efficiency and kindness. A great cook, she was also a wonderful hostess and loved to entertain. Since 1993 Sadie and Sean lived between Galway in Ireland and Newport until 2002 when Sadie suffered a stroke and they were no longer able to make the twice-yearly journeys to their beloved Newport. Sadie has spent the last two years in the Coral Haven Nursing Home in Galway where Sean continues to live. She always talked about going home to Newport. Those who knew Sadie will remember her for many reasons but perhaps most of all for her great sense of humor. May she rest in peace.
There will be a memorial service for the late Sadie Nally on Saturday, February 11, 2006, at 11 a.m. in the chapel at Portsmouth Abbey.
