    Sarah Trapnell Byrne

    Sarah Trapnell Byrne Passed away suddenly April 18, 2006, at her home in Palo Alto, CA, at age 68. Sally was born May 28, 1937, in Brooklyn, NY. During the war her family moved to Los Angeles, where her father, Coles Trapnell, worked as a story editor and producer at several movie studios. Her mother, Jean Trapnell, taught English in public schools and community colleges. Sally started college in 1954 at Stanford University, where she met her future husband, Jack Byrne, while both worked on the staff of the Stanford Daily. Upon graduation he was drafted and was sent to Germany; she interrupted her college education to go with him, and they were married in Frankfurt in 1957. They eventually settled in Palo Alto, where Jack became an editor and production manager at SRI International. Sally graduated Phi Beta Kappa in English from Stanford in 1962. She and Jack raised two children and remained together until his death in 1993.

    Sally was the family genealogist and could recite lineages and arrival dates of the branches of the Trapnell tree back to the 17th century. She liked gospel music Sunday mornings on KPFA, trips to the Mitchell Park library and the occasional old movie at the Stanford Theater.

    Sally was a loving and supportive mother, and an attentive and generous grandmother.

    She is survived by her sons, Trapper and Hugh; her sister, Jane Marino; and her grandchildren, Zoe, Elizabeth and Keenan.

    A Memorial Service will be held June 17 at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Menlo Park, which Sally attended for more than 40 years. Memorial donations may be made to the Peninsula Open Space Trust. This article appeared on page Z - 99 of the San Francisco Chronicle.
