Sally H. Singh of Cold Spring passed away peacefully on November 12, 2018, at NY Presbyterian Hospital in Cortlandt Manor. She was 80 and was born on June 13, 1938, in Lawrence, Massachusetts, to the late John A. and Rose Scanlon Hey.

Sally graduated from Mount Holyoke College in 1960 with her BA in Economics and went on to earn a PhD in Economics from Johns Hopkins University in 1970. Early in her career, Sally taught at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin, worked for the Federal Reserve Bank in Washington, DC, and also taught in Boston, where she met Kul Paul Singh and was married in 1972. After moving to Cold Spring, Sally continued to follow her passion for teaching, and she was a professor at Vassar College, Marist College, and most recently, SUNY New Paltz until her retirement in 2010.

Sally was a communicant of Our Lady of Loretto Church in Cold Spring where she sang in the church choir for 20 years. She was also a dedicated member of the North Highlands Fire Department Ladies' Auxiliary and the Highland Garden Club. Sally loved to read, to travel, to do crossword puzzles, and she spend every day trying to learn something new.
