Sally was a secretary and office manager by trade but had a wonderful penchant for small dogs. She was an avid volunteer on behalf of all dogs and owned several different breeds of dogs throughout her lifetime. She also loved boardgames, and became extremely proficient in Scrabble, Parcheesi, Chinese Checkers and Monopoly. And then of course there were her flowers, and her favorite of all time, yellow roses. She loved gardening and working in the yard communing with so many of nature’s amazing little creatures.
Sally was known and will always be remembered for her zany sense of humor, her creative imagination, her love of driving throughout the beautiful Finger Lakes region and her forthright personal demeanor. One always knew where one stood with Sally Coy! In all love!
In lieu of flowers, Sally is asking anyone wishing to make a financial or charitable donation to contribute to the American Arthritis Foundation. She suffered many years of painful arthritis, and one day, hoped there would be a cure.
