SARAH CHAMBERLIN BOWMAN Sarah Chamberlin Bowman (Sally) passed away peacefully on August 4, 2016 at the age of 90. Sally is survived by her brother, Stephen J Chamberlin II of Worcester MA, several nieces and nephews, her lifelong friend Meredith Wiltsie of Half Moon Bay CA, and numerous friends. She is predeceased by her husband, Peter Bowman, and parents, Stephen J Chamberlin I and Sarah Shanks Chamberlin. Sally was born on September 6, 1925, in Washington DC and has lived all over the world. She graduated from Hollins College in Virginia. She met her husband Peter in Germany where they lived for many years. They then settled in Pacific Palisades CA and later in Palo Alto CA where she worked for many years as an engineer and project manager at Rand Corporation and SDC. After retiring, Sally and Peter moved to Kailua HI. Animals were Sally's great love, especially horses and dogs, whom she treated as family members. Walking her dogs along Kailua Beach with friends was her greatest joy. She was a generous host and loved to entertain, frequently inviting friends for Sunday brunch at Kaneohe Marine Base. She also loved to visit the elephants at the Honolulu Zoo. A private celebration of life is planned. In lieu of flowers, donations in Sally's memory can be made to the Hawaiian Humane Society. The family would like to thank Sally's long time caregiver, Tina Leal, and the staff at Hale Kuike and Mauna Lani for their wonderful care.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
