Sally Ann Morehead, 80, of Annapolis, passed away peacefully at the Anne Arundel Medical Center on January 1st, 2021.

She was born in Annapolis to the late John William “Bill” Sturgis, Sr. and Evelyn Bishop Sturgis. She grew up on Sandy Point State Park where her father worked; they lived in a house on the park grounds now known as The Sandy Point Mansion. After graduating from Annapolis High School in 1958 and attending Fleet Business School, she worked for the State of Maryland for a short time. She worked 43 years as secretary of Heritage Baptist Church in Annapolis until her retirement in 2018, where she was an active member.

She loved spending time planting flowers to beautify her yard and decorating her house with items from annual Williamsburg outlet shopping trips with her husband. She enjoyed vacationing every summer for 40 years at Cherrystone campground where she went fishing with her brother Jack on his boat, wading at low tide to net crabs, playing bingo, and just relaxing with her family and extended family. She was also a super fan of the Baltimore Ravens. Her grandchildren were her greatest pride and joy and she spoiled them at every opportunity.

She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Walter Clair Morehead and her three children, John W. Morehead of Hanover PA, Amy E. Morehead Henry of Dunkirk, MD, and Andrew J. Morehead of Annapolis, MD; two grandchildren, Ann E. Henry and Robert S. Henry. She is preceded in death by her brother John W. “Jack” Sturgis, Jr. and twin sister Rosemary Murphy.

Sally and Clair were such important partners with the Spa Creek Conservancy when we built rain gardens and planted trees and plants at Heritage Baptist many years ago. Sally was instrumental in planning the volunteer planting and maintenance days and Clair kept those gardens happy for many years. A very lovely lady.

My memories are of the ones when Sally would be at mom and dads house, the parties and receptions there and in the church. I remember when their kids where born and Clair was my teacher in Jr High. The times we had at Camp Wo Me Too together. The Sturges and Morehead's where always there and a bright spot in our lives. Sally was a huge part of the churches life and we will all meet again on those beautiful shores.

So sweet of a person. My memories are many from the first I can remember as a child. Always with a smile, a kind word and lots of love. She has and will always live in my heart as well as many others.

I knew Miss Sally growing up several houses from where she and Mr. Morehead lived. I used to babysit the kids when they were little. She always had the most beautiful yard. She will be greatly missed by all, especially by her family. I know that she will always be looking down from heaven watching over her loved ones, and making sure that Mr. Morehead cuts the grass to her liking.

I will always remember this gracious warm woman who came to west palm to visit her twin sister Rosemary. She always had a warm welcoming smile. May God hold you very close. My sincerest sympathy to the family

My Aunt Sally was loving, kind, and gracious in every moment I spent with her; I will miss her so dearly. My memories are of such happy times together as a family- especially my Aunt Sally with her great laugh and fun loving spirit. She could fry fabulous chicken and her coconut cake is the best. A memory not so long ago is when Aunt Sally flew out to our home in Dallas with my Mom ( her twin). We girls took the shopping world of Dallas by storm.( Aunt Sally is a most fashionable woman and in all her beauty and style, she is still the most most humble of souls.) There wasn’t anything Aunt Sally wasn’t game for on that visit to Dallas... she lounged with us in the pool, played Frisbee with our energetic Border Collie, purchased Sprinkles from the cupcake ATM, and most importantly celebrated family with us ...so much love and laughter and great joy! She is one of those people whose spirit is young and happy and hopeful. I want to be just like her. I’m sending my love and prayers to my Uncle Clair and my dear Cousins.

I have so many fond memories of Sally growing up. Many of those were our time on our grandparents farm in Pittscreek.
One memory I will always cherish is she and I had babies on the same day just a few hours apart...a little boy named John for Sally and a little girl named Debbie for me. We have laughed and talked about that so many times over the past 50 years.
I love all my cousins but..Sally was a Sturgis as I was(am) and that made her special to me. She was beautiful inside and out and was always ready with a kind word and a smile.
She will be missed but will always live in my heart forever.

I will always have very fond memories of Sally, aka. "Mrs. Morehead".

Literally growing up while working for over 20 years at Heritage Learning Center, Sally was like a fairy God-mother to me.

Always there with a friendly greeting, a compassionate smile, and a piece of chocolate, Sally holds a very special place on my heart.

May all the loving memories soon replace sadness. Rest in sweet peace, Sally.

Much love and many prayers,
