Sarah "Sally" Duncan

October 27, 1927 — September 16, 2023

Sarah “Sally” Duncan, 95, of Vienna, OH went to be in the presence of God’s eternal love on

Saturday, September 16, 2023, after a period of declining health.

Sally was born in Alliance, OH on October 27, 1927, the only daughter of Dr. Roger and Doris

(Murdock) Owen. She graduated from Hiram College in 1949 with a degree in world history and

a minor in political science. Following graduation, Sally worked for several organizations in New

York City.

She married her husband, Norman D. Duncan, on November 24, 1954. Together they shared 54

years of marriage and five children. Sally was a wonderful mother, caring for her children and

grandchildren, as well as volunteering at Baker Elementary School. She was also a substitute

teacher for a few years.

Sally was a long-time active member and deacon of both First Christian Church of Youngstown,

OH and Disciples Christian Church in Boardman. In addition, she was active in a number of

community organizations, including the Youngstown Chapter of the United Nations Association

and The Greater Youngstown Point. In her spiritual life, Sally had a strong social justice

expression of faith. She had worked especially hard to further justice and peace in Israel and

Palestine. She was also an advocate for women.

Sally leaves her children; Jane (Mark) Mecozzi of Howland, Louise (Paul) Spencer of Fowler,

Scott Duncan of Pittsburgh, Nancy (Matt) Marchesano of Laguna Niguel, CA, and Doug (Julie

Woosley) Duncan of Raleigh, NC; 12 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren, with two more on

the way; and her brother, Dr. George Owen of Scottsdale, AZ.

Beside her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband; her brothers, Bill Owen and

Dick Owen; and grandson, Christopher Gless. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and

loved her.
