Sally Ann was beloved by all who knew her. Her friends and loved ones were plentiful, and she loved having long conversations keeping up to date on what was going on in the lives of those she loved. She was a devoted follower of Jesus Christ, and led a life that exemplified being a Christian. In her final months, she told everyone she could about Jesus. Sally Ann was a dedicated mother to her five children, and was adored by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to cook and to serve others with a kind smile and friendly conversation.
