02/16/1921 - 07/10/2015

Sally died peacefully in her home on the morning of July 10th.  She lived guided by her Quaker belief that we all have an inner light (caring, nurturing, the divine) and that humanity is elevated as we seek and nurture the inner light within ourselves and all others.  Sally worked tirelessly throughout her life on efforts to nurture others within and outside of Quakerism.  She was lead to freely share her insights and to develop numerous resources so that others might better follow their own leadings.  Sally was an active, caring member of her world community initiating and working on many projects to better humanity and our Earth.  A Quaker Memorial Meeting for Worship will be held at 2 pm 08/15/2015 at London Grove Friends Meeting, London Grove, PA

Survived by sons, David (& Julie), Jonathan, and Jeffrey, granddaughter Claire, nieces and nephews Janet, Foster, Lila, and David and their children and grandchildren, extended family members and many dear friends.  Husband - Henry George Rickerman (deceased) Father and Mother - David Hinshaw and Augusta Wiggam (both deceased).  

A memorial fund has been established to continue Sally's efforts, contributions are welcomed, for information contact
