NADKARNI, Sara (Geary) Of Wrentham, passed away on Saturday, November 22, 2008 at her home, with her family by her side. She was 64. Born in Huntington, Utah, she was the daughter of the late Merlin & Dora (Nielson) Geary. Wife of 40 years to Ravi Nadkarni, she was the mother of Maya Nadkarni, Asha Nadkarni and her husband Jason Moralee, and late Neela Nadkarni, who died in 1993. Sister of Marilyn Wagner, and her husband Dan, of Glenwood Springs CO, and Alyce Childs, and her husband Garth of Huntington UT. Her brothers & sisters in-law are Amar and Sheela Amembal of Newtown CT, Prakash Nadkarni of Danville PA and Rajani Nadkarni of Orange CT. Sara was a homemaker par excellence: an accomplished cook and baker who also enjoyed quilting, crochet, and many other crafts. Her friends knew her for her no-nonsense wit, unconditional support, and fierce games of Scrabble. Devoted to the happiness of her family and of others, Sara brightened the lives of all who knew her. She faced her long struggle with cancer with rare humor, courage, and grace, showing the same courage in confronting certain death that she did throughout her life. She had first faced cancer as a 40-year old with three young children, and over the years she dealt with the courses of surgery and chemotherapy with the positive attitude that characterized her approach to the world, concerned only for her family, friends and the causes she worked for and believed in. Even in her terminal illness, she was a source of strength to all around her, never losing her warmth, her gentle sense of humor and her concern for others. She taught us what the human spirit should be about, and her own spirit will continue to be with us and guide us. She will be deeply missed.

HINGHAN Irene P. (Carr) Ryan died at Harbor House in Hingham, November 30, 2008, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Roxbury, she lived many years in South Boston, where the family ran Carr's Variety Store. Many years later Irene and her sister Shirley would relive that experience when they opened Carr's II on Dorchester Ave. As a teenager Irene worked as an usher at the Shubert Theater, which began a lifelong interest in the theater. Irene was a proud American who loved her country and politics; she was a great admirer of FDR and the new deal. A lifelong Democrat, Irene was keenly interested in world affairs and always believed that government should use its power to be a force for good in the world. For many years Irene worked at UMass Boston, from its humble days in the old Boston Gas Co. building to the sprawling campus at Columbia Point. She loved working with young people and forged lifelong friendships with many students. Irene was passionate about education and encouraged all of her children and grandchildren to reach their potential. Perhaps more than anything, Irene loved to spend time with her family and friends at her house overlooking Cape Cod Bay in Eastham. Building that house was her passion and she relished time spent there for graduations, summer vacations, holidays and just relaxing. We have lost our mother but everyone who knew Irene has lost a fiercly loyal and loving friend. She will be missed-Good Night Irene. Beloved wife of the late Michael F. Ryan.
