Sally had a vivacious spirit and had many, many friends. She was a loving mother who desired to see her children do their best in all that they pursued. She spent her final years living at the Wesleyan at Scenic in Georgetown, Texas where she led a Bible reading group each Friday afternoon. Sally was a member of Crestview Baptist Church in Georgetown and although she was not able to attend services she listened to every service on “discs” brought to her faithfully by Richard and Kathy.
The family would like to thank all of the Nurses, CNA’s and caregivers on the A Wing for their devoted care. Your kindness in the last several weeks has been of great comfort to her family. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations made to the Wesleyan at Scenic, 2001 Scenic Drive, Georgetown, Texas 78626.
