EAST DORSET — Sally Byron Elliott, 96, died Saturday, April 13, 2013, at her own home in East Dorset.
She was born June 22, 1916, at home in Goose Rocks Beach, Kennebunkport, Maine.
She traveled extensively with her family in Europe during her childhood, and eventually settled in Weston, Mass.
She married James Barton Elliott on June 5, 1935. They lived in Baltimore, Md., and later in Pelham, N.Y., retiring to East Dorset.
Her sense of adventure took her to all parts of the world where she skied, backpacked, canoed and traveled. She especially enjoyed Findhorn, Scotland, and her birthplace in Maine. She also enjoyed reading and gardening.
In later years, she volunteered at the local library.
Survivors include three children, Betsy Elliott Winkler, Sally Barton Elliott, and James Barton “Tony” Elliott Jr.; four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren; a brother, John Devereux Byron; and a sister, Andrea Byron Earl.
She was predeceased by her husband and a daughter, Wendy Vautier Elliott.
A memorial wake will be held at her home later in the summer.
