Those who knew Sally knew she had a love for her kids and grandkids. She welcomed everyone like family. She always had a smile that could warm a room and always was up for a cup of coffee and something sweet. She loved playing bingo, spending time visiting with family, and cheering on the New York Yankees.   

She could always be heard saying as you walked away, I love all of you! She will be dearly missed by all the knew her.
