Sally graduated from Bloomington High School in 1970, the University of Iowa School of Pharmacy in 1975, and worked as a pharmacist for Osco Drugs for over 35 years. She was a member of Second Presbyterian Church, Bloomington, Delta Gamma Sorority, Daughters of the American Revolution, Antiquarian Club and P.O.E. Sally enjoyed golf, tennis, bridge antiques, gardening, walking, cycling, Pilates, reading, traveling, visiting with her friends and especially baby-sitting for her granddaughter Alexa.

In May of 2009, Sally discovered that cancer had invaded her body. Initially, she was scared, but after talking with her family and friends, her fear quickly turned to determination. Sally vowed to do what she could to fight the disease, while acknowledging that ultimately God has a plan for each of us. Throughout her fight, Sally stayed in touch with her many friends from all across the country through frequent communications. In return, her friends offered their prayers and support for Sally. Sally’s family would like to thank her friends for the love and comfort you provided to Sally during this period of her journey here on Earth. God bless you.
