Sally was an avid reader- with a desire and thirst to know “why?”.

She had an impeccable pallet for creating baked goods and candies that she enjoyed sharing with others. Her affinity with not only growing within herself and environment around her showed with all the fruit baring trees she planted and took care of for 42 years.

The final day has come and gone...we will all miss you very much! However, we know you are with God, as you have always been in this physical world and are now truly free. Thank you for all you have taught us! You will live on through all the memories we’ve made!
