Judy Matlack (September 9, 1898 – December 22, 1982)

May Sarton is the pen name of Eleanore Marie Sarton, an American poet, novelist, and memoirist. In 1945 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, she met Judy Matlack, who became her partner for the next thirteen years. They separated in 1956, when Sarton's father died and Sarton moved to Nelson, New Hampshire. Honey in the Hive (1988) is about their relationship. In her memoir At Seventy, she reflected on Judy's importance in her life and how her Unitarian Universalist upbringing shaped her. Sarton later moved to York, Maine. Matlack died in 1982. In 1990, Sarton suffered a stroke, severely reducing her ability to concentrate and write. After several months, she was able to dictate her final journals, starting with Endgame, which celebrated the joys of her life. Although many of her earlier works, such as Encounter in April, contain vivid erotic female imagery, May Sarton often emphasized in her journals that she did not see herself as a "lesbian" writer, instead wanting to touch on what is universally human about love in all its manifestations. She died of breast cancer on July 16, 1995, and is buried in Nelson, New Hampshire.
