Sally Jacobs, 'Force of Nature'

People like Sally Jacobs are rare and treasured. Renowned in her adopted state of Maine as a committed rail-trail advocate and builder, among other roles, Sally's more than three decades in the service of conservation and outdoor recreation forged a tremendous legacy that includes the establishment of the Downeast Sunrise Trail.

The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy family was saddened to learn that Sally passed away earlier this week, after a year-long battle with cancer.

Named one of Rails-to-Trails Conservancy's 25 Rail-Trail Champions last year, Sally's obituary in the Bangor Daily News perhaps put it best in describing Sally as "a loving mother, grandmother, friend and a true force of nature."

Donations in honor of Sally may be made to the Orono Land Trust at www.oronolandtrust.org.
