Sarah Aitken remembered as fearless Montreal activist and volunteer
Sarah Aitken has died at the age of 73.
MONTREAL – Fearless, stubborn, a community sparkplug with a remarkable knack for pinning down the right people to pitch in, Sarah (Sally) Aitken knew how to get things done.
The longtime local volunteer and activist passed away Sunday afternoon, “very peacefully and surrounded by her family,” a family member said.
With Aitken’s death, at age 73, “a little piece of Westmount is gone,” reflected Peter Trent, that city’s mayor.
