Sarah Jane Heath

November 16, 1933 — June 24, 2023



WORCESTER-Sarah Jane Heath died on June 24, 2023 at Overlook  in Charlton Massachusetts at age 89. She leaves her husband  of 70 years Austin and her 3 children Deborah Heath Daly, David A. Heath and Constance Heath Kubasti, 5 grandchildren and 4¾ great grandchildren. Jane and Austin lived on together on Lenox Street in Worcester for 41 and in Ballymeade, Falmouth for 21 years before moving to Overlook.

Austin writes:

I started dating Jane when we were both at the University of Pennsylvania and I was a senior. After graduation years I went in the Navy. We exchanged letters and pictures and when I finally got leave I went to Philadelphia l, saw Jane and asked her to come with me to Worcester to visit my parents where I made the best decision of my life and asked her to marry me. She said yes and we celebrated our 70th anniversary in May and it was a wonderful life.

Jane loved our family and her family. With her strong loving sense of responsibility she took care of not only me and our three kids, Debbie, David and Connie and their families but also her mother in her final years and her two brothers Andy and Franz and theirs. She always worried about them and hoped they were happy and well.

Jane was brought up playing tennis and enjoyed a good match. She was a member of Tatnuck Country Club, Worcester Tennis Club, Paxton Tennis Club, Shrewsbury Tennis Club Ballymeade and Falmouth Sports Center.  She played team tennis for many years and social tennis until age 84. She liked to win but having fun was more important.

In 1979 we bought our first cruising sail boat. At first Jane was a little skeptical and wanted to spend  two weekends on the boat and one in Worcester. By the next summer she was going to the boat sometimes on Thursday although I could not go the boat until late on Friday. We cruised over 60,999 miles everywhere from Grand Lake in New Brunswick to the southern Bahamas particularly the central Exumas.

We had a wonderful loving life together
