Bowditch who passed away in 2009.  The daughter of the late Willard R. and Helene (Coe) Stevens, she was a 1945 graduate of Manheim Twp. High School.  She lived with her husband and children in California from 1955 to 1971, relocating back to Lancaster, PA with her family. For many years in California she was involved with her children in 4H and had multiple farm animals in their back yard. A favorite family activity was camping the California coast from Washington to Mexico. In 1989, she retired from the business office at Highland Presbyterian Church and became active in working at the election polls in Manheim Township.  She was a long time and very active member of St. Thomas Episcopal Church. Saralee loved to work in her flower garden, loved shopping for flowers, hosting family dinners, as well as helping neighbors and church members in need. Saralee always had a smile and a helping hand for all.
