Sarah Avirett Auer October 01, 1923 – November 22, 2015

Sarah Auer, beloved wife of the late John W. (Bill) Auer, passed away at the age of 92 on November 22, 2015 following a several month illness.

Originally from Blakely, Georgia, Sarah lived in Tallahassee while attending business school, then in Atlanta where she worked for the Red Cross, met and married her late husband of 57 years, Bill Auer. Their careers relocated them to Virginia and finally Maryland where they raised a family. As the family was poised to expand, Sarah's career refocused on the challenge of raising 3 sons before reentering the commercial world of accounting where she remained until retirement.

During Sarah and Bill's retirement it wasn't unusual to come home, several times a year, to an answering machine message … "we were passing through and staying at a local hotel and we would love to take you for dinner". They explored the eastern seaboard, with Bill doing the driving and Sarah as master navigator –with the ever-present yellow-highlighted road atlas.

Sarah is survived by three sons: John E. Auer, W. Douglas Auer and Thomas B. Auer; a sister Frances Causey; three grandchildren, Sarah Riley Auer, Samantha Brookes Auer, Melanie Mallory and a great grandchild Elliott Mallory.
