I never met Sally Shipman, but she helped our (not-very-prosperous) neighborhood stop a concrete plant in the city's extra-territorial jurisdiction in the early 80's when Texas Air Control Board was (of course) of no help. She put us in touch with a useful person at the City Attorney's office, so that when they started construction we knew they did not have a necessary permit. On the weekend, she phoned us back and her office sent someone out to stop construction.
Although the owner could doubtless have eventually gotten the permit, that discouraged him enough he changed his mind about having the concrete plant there. I don't live there any more, but I do visit, and the neighborhood is better off for it even today. Many thanks to her and continued gratitude.

I worked for Sally in her city council office during my senior year at UT. From there, I was gathered into her orbit; I edited her monthly newsletter, worked on her campaigns, and was introduced to so many other wonderful people through knowing Sally. She left a lasting mark on city hall, and on all of us who benefit from her pioneering work for neighborhoods and capitol view preservation. But as a wide-eyed kid who loved the idea of public service and knew nothing about it, I was most impressed by Sally’s boundless energy and her determination to do the right thing. She let me ride along, literally and figuratively, and gave me opportunities to serve at a very young age. I will always remember her confidence in me and I will miss her.

I had only recently been fortunate enough to get to know Sally. I found her to be always so positive, upbeat, and energetic. She was a ray of sunshine, but also really knew her stuff! She will be sorely missed for her many professional contributions and for her personal inspiration. My heart-felt sympathy goes out to her family, of whom she spoke often and with great love.

I knew Sally in Melody Maids in Beaumont, and looked up to her in many ways. She was a great model for the girls coming after her and went out of her way to help anyone who asked.
