in memoriam sidney saylor farr _ George Brosi Appalachian Heritage and the Appalachian literary community is mourning the death of Sidney Saylor Farr last May 27.

When she was in the seventh grade, she quit school to take care of her mother, who was bed-ridden, and her nine brothers and sisters. At the age of fifteen, she married Leon Lawson, a man of similar background but ten years her senior.
