Sally was born in Olyphant, Pennsylvania on July 20th, 1937. Her family moved many times before relocating to Newark, New Jersey the summer before high school. She attended Saint Vincent Academy in Newark, New Jersey and graduated in 1955. Soon after, she met Larry and they were married in 1959.

Her faith in Jesus was unwavering! She loved time spent with her family, especially with her dear grandchildren. Sally was a loving and compassionate friend to countless people, and had the distinct ability to make each and every person feel so very special.
