Sally moved to Dallas as a young child. She was a proud graduate of Hockaday School.

Sally collected teddy bears. This started when, as a teacher, she would get them at a garage sale, wash them, maybe repair them and have them ready to give a little student when they were hurting. Sally is survived by her husband Robert Cole; daughters Jennifer and Ashley; son James and his wife Marianne; and Jennifer’s children Henry and Grace.
