Sally was truly an angel. She always greeted you with a smile and a warm hello. She truly cared about so many and always had time to chat. When St Andrews library opened, Sally gladly said she would be responsible to maintain and keep the library organized. The world and St Andrews is a much better place because of her presence. God Bless You and May you rest in all of eternity in peace.Christine & Val Perovich

Sally was a loving woman, who never had an unkind word for anyone. She loved her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was proud of all of you. Her other loves were Norbert and Jesus. She is resting in His arms now.
