MILLESBURG, Pa., and BAR HARBOR – Sally A. Magyar, 64, died Oct. 23, 2007, at a Bangor hospital, after a long illness. She was a summer resident of Bar Harbor. Sally was born Dec. 2, 1942, in Harrisburg, Pa., the daughter of George A. and Faye (Noll) Faber. She was a graduate of Millersburg Upper Paxton High School and Shippensburg State College, where she majored in elementary education. Upon graduation, she began her teaching career in the Harrisburg public schools, working at Cameron Elementary and spending most of her career teaching fifth graders at Lenkerville Elementary, of the Millerburg Area School district, Millersburg, Pa. She was instrumental in establishing Camp Hebion Environmental experience for fifth graders of Millersburg, Pa. She retired after 31 years. Sally loved gardening, needlework, raising pets, antiquing and decorating. She especially loved Maine and Mount Desert Island. She was proud of the fact that in her younger days she climbed every mountain in Acadia National Park. She was content in her later years to take rides on the island and sit at Seawall or Hadley Point and watch the water. She was a 50-year member of Grace United Methodist Church, Millersburg, Pa., where she held many offices over the years. She was a member of Friends of Acadia, Abbe Museum, the Maine National Resources Council and the Maine Coast Heritage Trust, the National Trust, AARP, Humane Society of the United States, Ned Smith Center, Red Hat Society, Halifax Garden Club and Dauphin Dog Trainers Club. Memorial contributions may be made to any of the above organizations. Sally is survived by her loving husband, Stephen W. Magyar; her beloved cairn terriers, Charles and Winnie; a brother-in-law, Joel Magyar of Fort Myers, Fla.; a sister, Donna McNamara of Huntingtown, Md.; a loving niece, Mimi McNamara of Silver Springs, Pa.; a nephew, John McNamara and his wife, Angela, and their three sons, Robert, Connor and Wyatt of Reedysville, Md.; and her best friend, Jodi Franke of Millersburg, Pa. As Sally had desired, there will be no public service. Let us all remember Sally as the loving and vibrant person that she was. Arrangements by Jordan-Fernald, 1139 Main St., Mount Desert.
