Family was the most important part of Sally’s life. Her five daughters were the world to her, and she was happiest when they were all with her. Sally was an independent and reliable person. Those who knew Sally, often felt that everything was alright when Sally was at the helm. In her spare time, Sally enjoyed playing Bingo, going to the casino, playing Bejeweled on her iPad and watching game shows like “The Price Is Right!”.
Sally was loving, feisty and caring. Her life lessons and example are part of her legacy that continue through her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. Sally will be missed by all the lives she touched.
