As a child Sally loved spending time on her grand parents dairy farm in Kingman, Az. She also adored her father, she was his pride and joy. She was just a little girl when she lost her Daddy in a tragic accident but always knew that she would see her Daddy again. She loved visiting with her siblings Arthur, George and Karen and enjoyed talking about their childhood.
Sally had 4 children Richard, Debra, Glen and LuAnne, she was so proud and in love with them. She traveled to Germany, Paris, Switzerland and Austria. She also traveled to her favorite places around the country with her best friend Martine Beckstead whom she loved with all of her heart. Now will get to sit at the table talking, carry on their long conversations and continue to travel in Heaven like they did here on Earth.

She loved spending time talking with her friends, going on field trips and having bowling tournaments on the Nintendo Wee. She also loved her dogs George and Audrey. They never left her side all the way to the end.
