While I did not know Sallie, I knew her daughters, Becky and Jill. Apples, it is said, do not fall far from their tree. Knowing Becky and Jill tells me that Sallie was women who reflected the virtues of Proverbs 31: noble of character, wise, and a blessing to her family, community, and church. May each of the family members be blessed with many happy memories. Frosty

Sally was a perky lady I always admired. I loved visiting her and enjoying her conversations and positive attitude, she never complained, she enjoyed life for what it was, friendly, always smiling and kind. She will be missed.
