Sally’s passion has always been to serve and take care of others; from her children to her family, friends,
parishioners and even her pets, Sally always put the comfort and care of others above her own

and memories she brought to us all, and we each are eternally grateful for the love and compassion she
taught each of us. She will be dearly missed.
