So sorry for you loss! I attended Elmwood School and graduated in1976, just as a reference. Best!
There is now a new angel in Heaven , While all of us will miss Sally, it will be her family that will be lost without her. It is our faith that gets us through the rough times,She talked often to me about Bob and her boys.
I met Sally through the MacDowell Club (a musical group). She was such a sweet lovely lady and so thoughtful with her cards. I will miss her and her sharing of music with us. Sincere sympathy to her family and friends.
Dear Dale and Carol, I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s always difficult to lose a parent. My thoughts are with you.
Dear Dale, Carol and Family,
I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. My thoughts are prayers are with you all.
I still remember Sally singing with you, Robert, at Salem EUB in Grand Island, NE when I was young. We always enjoyed Sally, and you, Bob, at Eula and Dale’s anniversary and funeral. You both were special to Mom and Dad.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Sally was an amazing woman who touched many lives and hearts. She will be greatly missed.
Dear Bob and Family,
Sally’s radiance shines on as she now is another star in the the heavens above. She made me feel welcome from the first day after transferring from Bethel to First Methodist, Pueblo. Her warm heart never forgot a soul. She will be deeply missed.
My condolences to Bob and all of the family.
I remember my Grammy (Beverley Ann Clark) speaking so highly of Sally and know my parents (Janie and Bob) had a wonderful time with her in May. Marileen and family, my heart and thoughts are with you all at this time. Sending hugs and love from San Francisco.
Bob and family, we at FUMC are grateful for Sally’s witness and encouragement that she gave so many of us. God be with you all during this time.
Sally taught a young minister’s wife how to be a support to her spouse in a tough job. She helped me audition and sing with the women’s chorus in South Sioux City. I will always remember her as such a positive person.
Blessings to Bob and your sons.
Sending my deepest thoughts and prayers to all of you
She will be singing in the greatest of choirs now
with Gods love
We are saddened to hear of Sally’s passing. Our hearts go out to you in sympathy and love. You may not remember us, but you married Skip and me on the hottest day of the year in 1969. You were at the East Avenue UMC and we had you come down to the 1st Church and marry us on July 12th at 4:00 in the afternoon. There was no air conditioning in the church and it was 104 degrees outside. Skip asked how you could stand wearing a robe when it was that hot and you said, “I don’t have to wear any pants under it.” You sent a nervous groom out with a smile on that one! Please know you and your family will be in our prayers as you journey through your grief.
Although, I do not remember meeting Sally, I remember Bob who served faithfully in the Nebraska Annual Conference. I send my prayers for comfort over the loss of your dear wife. May God bless you through this time of loss and through the Memorial Service for Sally. With my Condolences.
Sally was part of the Nebraska UMC Parsonage Connection and greeted me when I began attending. I remember her leading some singing and providing leadership in other ways.
Sally was such a wonderful woman. My family enjoyed going with her and Bob to the YMCA in Estes Park, So sorry for the loss.
I was a member of a music club with Sally for many years. I hadn’t
seen her for several years but always enjoyed her company. I
remember the many duets that she and Margaret Sutton put on.
So sorry to hear of her passing, she was a special lady.
