Sally was born on September 23, 1948 in Monroe, LA and passed away from this life in her home on November 19, 2021 at the age of 73. She loved God, bingo, her family and friends. Sally was avid pool player who was a volunteer worker for benefits, families and community. You could always go by her house and she was either watching The Price is Right, listening to gospel music or sitting outside enjoying her coffee or Hershey Bar and the wind blowing. She called the wind her “breeze from Heaven”.
