Our condolences on the loss of a wonderful woman. I had the privilege of workin with her many years ago and I remember her as a kind,caring nurse. My husband and I had many fun times with Sally and Jerry with many,many laughs. We thought about you often after you moved especially when we had the occasion to drive by your former home in Oswego. May her fond memories give you comfort now and forever. Ed and Kim garrow

Sally was a classmate of mine at Oswego High School. Always a smile it seemed and a kind word. Never heard anyone say anything negative...how could they afterall. She was respectful of everyone and had a servants heart. Please accept my deepest sympathy on Sally's passing. She will always be remembered by me and all of her classmates with fondness.
