Dale, Sally Ann Passed from the surrounding love of her family to the arms of her Savior on November 18. The strength Sally exhibited during her two year fight with cancer was an inspiration to all. She never lost her warm, welcoming smile, her joyous laughter, or her unconditional love of family, friends and clients. Sally was preceded in death by her mother and father, Anne and Percy Sheeley and is survived by a loving extended family: husband, Steve; sons, Jim (Becky) Anderson and Michael (Danyelle) Anderson; daughter, Stacy (Brian) Strojny; stepsons, Todd (Theresa) Dale, Christopher (Jeni) Dale; brother, Jim (Sandra) Sheeley; in-laws, Jim and Janet Dale; 9 very special grandchildren and countless friends and clients. The family is thankful for the outstanding medical care Sally received, especially from Dr. Joseph Leach (Sally's "Rock"), Bryn Thompson and all the nurses and staff at Minnesota Oncology. Pictures and tributes can be found on Sally's site at caringbridge.com/visit/sallydale. A memorial service will be held on December 2 at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Burnsville, MN with visitation from 3-4 pm and service at 4 pm. Sally firmly believed that providing help to others was far more important than flowers. Please consider remembering her to the Angel Foundation (of Minnesota Oncology), Heartland Hospice, or Feed My Starving Children. "Put a smile on your face and you can get through anything - Smiles Spread" - Sally.
