Sally Mitchell Bucklee was a longtime women's advocate in the Episcopal Church. Born on August 6, 1930, in Auburn, NY, she graduated from Douglass College, Rutgers University, and she and her husband Brian lived in Maryland for over forty years. As a founding member—and later President—of the Episcopal Women's Caucus — and later President — she promoted the ordination of women to all orders of the Church. In 1972 she was elected to the Standing Committee of the Diocese of Washington and was the second woman to serve on that committee. Bucklee also served as Chair of Executive Council's Committee on the Status of Women and as a member of the Task Force on Women's Ministries. At the request of President of the House of Deputies Pamela Chinnis, she served on President Chinnis' Council of Advice, a position she held for nine years. Ms. Bucklee was a four-term Deputy to General Convention, representing the Diocese of Washington, and an influential voice on Executive Council. Ms. Bucklee died on January 8, 2016 at the age of 85.
