Sarah "Sally" Holbrook Boggs, of New Orleans, died on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at East Jefferson General Hospital after a brief illness. She was 70 years of age. She is survived by her beloved husband of 29 years, Philip H. Shiu; brother, Charles Boggs (Debbie); nieces, Margaret H. Boggs, Sarah R. Boggs (Peter Oblander), and Emily B. Walker (William); her remarkable aunt, Claire Morrison (age 103); and many loving cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, Archibald Raymond Boggs and Sally Holbrook Boggs; uncles, Hale Boggs, Fr. Robert Boggs, S.J., and William Boggs; and aunts, Mary Boggs and Marie Louise Spencer. Sally graduated from The Academy of the Sacred Heart in 1966, attended Trinity College in Washington, D.C. and graduated from Tulane University in 1970. During her junior year, Sally studied abroad at the Sorbonne University in the Latin Quarter of Paris. She became fluent in French. Although Sally traveled extensively in the United States as a child with her parents and brother, it was in Paris that she developed her lifelong passion for seeing the world and experiencing many differing cultures. After college, she joined Pan American World Airways as an international flight attendant, thus beginning her life of international travel to many continents and countries. She continued with Pan Am for twenty years. Sally resided in New York City with her husband Philip until recently when they moved back into her family home in New Orleans. She spent time with her family and the friends she knew since childhood. Complementing her adventurous spirit to explore the world, Sally remained a person deeply cherishing her roots, family and friends. Sally will be remembered for her loving, generous and compassionate life. A strong spirit, she saw the humor in everyday events. She held dear her family and friends. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the Funeral Mass at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, 6367 Saint Charles Ave. in New Orleans, on Monday, January 14, 2019 at 11:00AM.

Phil,
I am so sorry for your loss. I met you and Sally only a few times (at Tootie's), but I remember Sally as being very sweet with a great sense of humor.
Praying for you and all the family.
Mary
