Sally Ann (Schunke) passed away on March 9, 2019 in Portland, Oregon at the age of 76. She was born on July 19, 1942 in Salem, Oregon.

She received her formal education at Englewood Grade School, then St. Vincent and finally Sacred Heart High School.

Sally married Steven McFarland on January 15, 1966. They raised two sons, Sean and Scott McFarland. She also has a brother Edward Schunke III.

Sally loved her children and grandchildren. They were her “priorities in life”.

In the late “60’s and 70’s Sally and Steven enjoyed staying at the Silver Legacy Hotel in Reno, Nevada. It was “fun time”.

During the 1970’s and ‘80’s Sally went on many exciting trips with Steven, to Paris, Mexico City, Nassau in the Bahamas, Bermuda, Barbados, again in the Bahamas, and Hawaii. In the ‘80’s and 90’s they made several trips to Maui.

Later in life during the 1990’s and 2000’s life was on the open sea cruising with Steven and good friends, Carol and Art Krueger. They cruised to Alaska, Hawaii, Tahiti, Inland Passage Western Mexico and 2 caribbean cruises.

Sally was one the most thoughtful and giving persons that God put on this earth.

Sally was always wanting to stop by the card store to get cards for friends who were ill. She never forgot her friends and family birthdays. She was generous to a fault when it came time to buy for grandsons. She was like a Santa Claus with a ponytail.

We have lost a generous, loving, thoughtful, solid human being.

Funeral Service will be on Monday, March 18, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at Bateman Carroll Funeral Home located at 520 W. Powell Blvd. in Gresham, Oregon.

Private Burial will take place at Belcrest Memorial Park in Salem, Oregon.
