Sarah "Sally" F. May
April 28, 1926 – July 4, 2018
SARAH "SALLY" MAY, 92, of KC, MO, went Home to her Lord, on July 4, 2018. She had lived in the same house in KC since 1948. She worked for the Davis Paint Company for 34 years before retiring to travel and enjoy time with her beloved husband prior to his passing in 1993. She loved life, and lived it to the fullest. She deeply treasured her family, friends, home, and country.
She flew her first plane in the 1940's and enjoyed taking two special neighbor boys to the air shows over the span of 20 years. She could identify any military plane simply by the sound of its engine. She began downhill skiing at age 59 and enjoyed going on ski trips. She had a deep love for everything west of the Mississippi, but most especially Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. She was still driving the Rockies' mountain roads and hiking its trails with her little dog and a friend well into her 80's. She loved nature and was an avid photographer, poet, crafter, and traveler, learning something new each and every day. She used her first personal computer at age 75! She enjoyed taking friends to the "boat" to play the penny machines. She loved sharing her experiences with all who would listen. She enjoyed planning trips to Colorado for friends and associates. She was a remarkably gifted lady. Thank you, Mom, and thanks to all who knew and loved her.
She is survived by numerous friends and neighbors, as well as her son, Gene; daughter, Pam; grandson, Shane (Kebra); and puppy dog, Sweetie. A private memorial will be held later. Donations may be made to Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care and/or NorthCare Hospice House.

Was so sorry to read of the loss of this lovely lady. I remember that Sally, and my aunt Mary Francis, shared some wonderful, fun times together. I know their trips created some lasting memories for both of them. How wonderful she was able to continue her "wanderlust" for so many years.
