Sally dedicated her life to her girls and was “MOM” to many. Her house and heart was always open to friends and family-and everyone was made to feel welcome…always. Her home was your home. She was known to be strict and protective, yet loving and kind. She had a profound way of making others feel loved and valued. She was the life of the party and her laughter was contagious. Friends and family would gather together to hear a “Sally story.” Her sense of humor matched with her love and talent of storytelling was like none other-especially her ghost stories. Everyone loved Sally-time!
Sally was a wonderful writer, having written several songs over the years. She was an avid speller, the grammar police and champion Boggle and Scrabble Player. She cooked for hundreds, traveled to more school functions and events to count, all in support of her children, grandchildren and family. She was always there…cheering on the sidelines…encouraging…loving…supporting…Her LOVE was unwavering. Even when she was down…she pressed on…for her family. Her strength was insurmountable and immeasurable.
Sally was an avid football fan and especially loved her WVU Mountaineers, along with pro football. She could talk (and debate) sports with any man in the house. Other unique facts about Sally include that she won Miss Van High and was a cheerleader, she could yodel, loved country and oldies music and enjoyed pranking and scaring people. She loved searching for a good yard sale and made the best peanut butter candy on the planet. She loved Madison Pool days and picnics at the farm playing horseshoes, grilling out and being with her family.
Sally was loving and kind yet feisty and sassy. Her nickname “Sassy Sally,” was fitting…yet she loved and laughed with her entire being. Her entire soul was light, happiness and love. She never made a difference in anyone…always treating everyone equally, with love and respect.
She and her husband, Charlie, were excellent dancers and often put on a show. They won many dance contests over the years. Sally would say “they would clear the floor to watch us dance,” – and that they did. We are sure they are jitterbugging together again in heaven today…
