Sally Lewis Bartlett, formerly from Bethesda, MD, died Sunday, July 1, at Cleveland Regional Medical Center. She was born in Hazleton, PA, on March 8, 1925, the only child of David and Olive Lewis. She graduated from Hazleton High School in 1943, and received her Associate Degree in 1945 from Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA. Sally retired from St. Alban’s School in Washington, DC, after thirty years as secretary and administrative assistant to the headmaster.
She is survived by her son David Bartlett and his wife Dr. Joan Bartlett of Washington, DC; her daughter Jane Trotman and husband Bob of Rutherford County; her grandchildren Nat Trotman and wife Angela Slagle of Manhattan, NY, and Bart Trotman, his wife Jessica, and their daughter Elsa of Gibsonville, NC. She is also survived by her loving companion and partner of eighteen years, Dr. Theodore Bledsoe of Shelby, formerly of Washington, DC.
Sally was the smartest person she knew; she was quick-witted with a marvelous sense of humor. She was the queen of crosswords and a great lover of cats. Sally embraced her Welsh heritage and traveled to Wales to reconnect with her family there. She also traveled throughout Europe and visited Australia and New Zealand. Her favorite trip of all was a cruise aboard the Queen Elizabeth II with Ted.
A memorial service and celebration of life will be held in October at the Church of the Redeemer in Bethesda, MD.
Cecil M. Burton Funeral Home and Crematory is serving the family of Sally Barlett.
